While politicians and public figures continue to praise the COVID vaccine (after catching COVID), only 8% of the COVID deaths in Canada between May 22 and June 5 were among unvaccinated individuals — a disproportionately low figure.
According to the Government of Canada’s official data, there were 618 COVID deaths across the country between May 22 and June 5, 2022.
Of these 618 deaths, 352 of them (57%) were among those with two and at least one additional more doses, while 195 deaths (32%) were individuals who were “fully vaccinated” with two shots.
Thus, 547 of the 618 COVID deaths occurred among individuals receiving two or more COVID vaccines, accounting for 89% of all COVID deaths over the last two reported weeks in Canada.
Meanwhile, there were only 49 deaths in the unvaccinated population, accounting for 8% of all COVID deaths in Canada between May 22 and June 5. The remaining COVID deaths come from the partially vaccinated and ineligible populations.
According to Health Canada, the unvaccinated population in Canada at 5+ years old makes up 10.7% of the eligible population yet accounts for only 8% of COVID deaths.
Meanwhile, the boosted population — roughly 49% of the eligible population — accounted for 57% of all COVID deaths.
While COVID death figures are mostly consistent, given their relative population sizes, it highlights that there appears to be no correlation between receiving the vaccine and not dying of severe COVID.
The data released from May 8 to May 22 reveals similar doubts about vaccine efficacy.
However, it should be mentioned that many who received the booster dose tend to be older and thus at greater risk of being hospitalized or dying from COVID (which may explain disproportional total deaths).
This trend has been shown repeatedly throughout the tail end of the pandemic, and more studies have shown that natural immunity or ‘hybrid immunity’ provides more robust protection against COVID than mere vaccination.
Nevertheless, authorities continue to double and triple–down on promoting the vaccines, and the CDC just approved the vaccine to be used on babies under ‘emergency use’ authorization, despite the lack of evidence that it’s needed.
And in Canada, even though the government suspended some vaccine mandates, Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos says they need to “transition” away from ‘fully vaccinated’ meaning just two doses, suggesting ongoing booster requirements in the future
