SPECIAL NOTE: Based on today's data, if we were to compare two (2) hypothetical populations of 100,000 people each, vaccinated versus unvaccinated, there would be 13 vaccinated people hospitalized for COVID-19 compared to 226 unvaccinated people hospitalized for COVID- 19. The risk of being hospitalized for COVID-19 is about 17 times higher for the unvaccinated as compared to the vaccinated.
