COVID Death Stats Compared by Vaccination Status

A recent CDC study compared COVID death statistics by vaccination status, and this is what they found: From October to November 2021, they recorded: 16, 527 Unvaccinated COVID Deaths 5,493 Fully Vaccinated COVID Deaths (No Booster) 285 Fully Vaccinated + Booster COVID Deaths Source: CDC Study- Page 4 https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/71/wr/pdfs/mm7104e2-H.pdf
