Double-jabbed people are 32 times less likely to die of Covid than those who aren't vaccinated
DOUBLE-jabbed people are 32 times less likely to die of Covid than those who are not vaccinated, figures reveal.
The welcome level of protection was revealed in a comparison of virus deaths rates in England by the Office for National Statistics.
Dr Peter English, a retired public health doctor, said: “These are among the best available data on the effectiveness of vaccines.
“The important message is that vaccination is highly effective against death from Covid-19. You are 32 times less likely to die if you have been fully vaccinated than if you are unvaccinated.
“And a single dose also provides some protection, although less than two doses.”
The ONS study, adding yet more evidence of the life-saving effect of jabs, looked at Covid death rates between January and September this year.
It said rates were “consistently lower” for the vaccinated among victims recorded as dying from a current Covid infection.
