UK: TROUBLING hospitalization (severity) data (week 35, 2022) following COVID injection; appears that across all ages, hospitalization rate is highest (37.8 per 100,000) when VAXX is within 3 months

by Paul Alexander

Lowest within 3 months (58.1 per 100,000) in persons 75 years and over, and very troubling it is highest 27.9 per 100,000 in < 3 months (so that means recent injection/boosting) 40-74 years old

The data appear to suggest that more recent injection (boosting) does not cut the risk of severe illness all ages (extreme right stack of vertical bars) and 40 to 74 years old (2nd stack of vertical bars). This is opposite to what you would expect. Recent boosting is not working especially in those 40 to 74 years of age.

Specifically, figure 15 graph below shows that more recent injection (boosting) fails to mitigate risk of severe illness needing hospitalization e.g. than injections > = 6 months (twice higher risk of hospitalization (27.9/13.9=2.0) (40 to 74 years old age-group).

See page 47, Figure 15. Estimated rate of hospitalization for COVID-19 per 100,000 vaccinated people by time since last vaccination (any dose) and age group, admissions from 30 May to 19 June 2022 inclusive (ISO weeks 22 to 24 2022), England

The interval for each admitted case is grouped into under 3 months, 3 to under 6 months, and 6 months and over since last vaccination.
