- WebMDMay 13, 2021 -- A new study found that more than 99% of patients hospitalized with COVID-19 during the first four months of 2021 weren’t fully vaccinated.
- CNNThere's a common theme among those behind the worsening Covid-19 numbers, said Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
"This is becoming a pandemic of the unvaccinated," Walensky said at a Covid-19 briefing Friday.
More than 97% of people getting hospitalized with Covid-19 now are unvaccinated, Walensky said.
And 99.5% of deaths are among the unvaccinated, US Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy said Sunday.
I recently retired from healthcare but I will always think like a nurse.
It's frustrating to see Covid-19 on the rise again because people fail to get vaccinated. You put yourself and others at risk, period.
If the information above doesn't give the unvaccinated a wake up call then I am not sure what will.
