Do the COVID-19 injectables (aka "vaccines") reduce COVID-19 hospitalisations?
Analysis of US counties 24-Feb to 19-May 2022 concludes a resounding "No".
*** I made a mistake. Please ignore this one! I’m going to repost!!
Regression of COVID-19 hospitalisation rates between 24-Feb and 19-May 2022 and rates of full and booster vaccination rates on 19-May-22 for the 948 US counties that reported the data.
There is no relationship between hospitalisation rates and the rate of full vaccination.
There is no relationship between hospitalisation rates and the rate of booster vaccination.
Both variables are statistically insignificant and the model has zero explanatory power.
Interestingly, the South (Bible Belt) had the least fully vaccinated counties. They are also Republican.
Given how few boosters have been taken up relative to prior doses, it seems the rest of the Republican states apart from Nebraska have wised up now as well.
It’s just the Democrats in the Midwest, North East and West Coast that haven’t cottoned on yet.
Not that the whole thing is political or anything!
