Victorian Covid-19 vaccination and death data for 2022 produces some surprising findings

Covid jab data revealing a VERY surprising detail about pandemic deaths, and sure to spark a HUGE debate

  • Victoria government releases startling data on Covid deaths so far in 2022
  • Sixty-eight percent of the total 1,742 deaths occurred among vaccinated Victorians.
  • The unvaccinated accounted for 32 percent of COVID deaths in the state this year
  • There were almost 10 times more deaths from an Omicron strain than from Delta

More than two-thirds of Victorians who have died of Covid-19 this year had received at least one vaccine but still died from the virus.

Statistics published by the Victorian government showed that 68 per cent of people who died with Covid in 2022 were vaccinated.

But less than a third of those who died were not vaccinated.

However, doctors warn that the figures are not what they seem.

Only four per cent of the Victorian population aged 16 and over are unvaccinated, meaning the 32 per cent who die without being vaccinated is eight times higher than it should be.

Between January 1 and May 25 this year, 2022 so far 1,742 Victorians have died from Covid, the herald sun informed.

Of those, 558 were unvaccinated (or of unknown status), about 32 percent of all Covid deaths in 2022.

The double vaxxed accounted for 41 percent of deaths (720 people), while 24 percent have three shots. Three percent (53 deaths) received only one puncture.

A spokesman for the Department of Health argued that the figures showed that per capita vaccines save lives because 5.1 million Victorians over the age of 16 received a double dose, compared with several hundred thousand left unvaccinated.

With only four per cent of Victorians aged 16 and over unvaccinated, the fact that 32 per cent of Covid deaths in the state were unvaccinated means a disproportionate number of unvaccinated people died.

Of the 1,742 deaths, 349 were genomically sequenced to reveal the strain that killed the patients.

Omicron was by far the deadliest strain, at least in raw numbers.

The Omicron BA.1 subvariant caused 201 deaths, while the Omicron BA.2 strain was responsible for 110.

“Our deepest condolences go out to all the families and friends who have lost loved ones to Covid over the course of the pandemic,” a Department of Health spokesperson said.

He said getting the recommended vaccine would “significantly reduce” the risks of dying or getting severe illness from Covid.

“If you are due to receive your next dose of the Covid vaccine, you should receive it as soon as possible.”

A third dose provided up to 97 percent more protection against hospitalization and death for people over 50 compared with two or fewer doses, it said UK research showed.

Meanwhile, pathologists are sounding the alarm over low uptake of coronavirus vaccine boosters as the national immunization group suggests a fourth dose for some Australians.

The Royal Australasian College of Pathologists says third doses are particularly low in Queensland and New South Wales, even as COVID-19 cases rise.

“With the onset of winter, it is important that everyone is fully up to date on all relevant vaccinations,” said RCPA member Professor William Rawlinson.

“The RCPA recently highlighted that it is very likely that we will experience many more cases of influenza in Australia this winter. This, combined with the current rising trend in COVID-19 cases, is likely to put extraordinary pressure on the health system.”

Western Australia has the highest acceptance of third doses, at around 80 per cent, while Queensland is the lowest at 58 per cent. Nationwide, around two-thirds of eligible Australians have received a booster.

On Wednesday, the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunization extended eligibility for a second booster to people with health problems or a disability.

Leading immunologist Peter Doherty of the Doherty Institute said it was too early to say for sure how effective the third and fourth doses were in protecting people against “long-term Covid.”

But he said people could be “safe” that it would help prevent more serious forms of the disease.
