“The Unvaccinated are filling up hospitals” and “It’s a Pandemic of the Unvaccinated” are comments I’m seeing and hearing every day right now, both here in the UK and the US. I’d like to think people would say “Show me the data!”, but of course, they don’t. Instead, this has become the ‘Haha, Fuck You Unvaccinated scumbag’ retort for the propaganda feeders.
Who needs evidence of such claims? The media are saying it, Oprah is saying it, hell, even that creepy dude in the White House, Joe Biden is saying it!
“Look, the only pandemic we have is among the unvaccinated,” – Joe Biden, AP News
Show me the Data!
The BBC has, of course, been banging their relentless propaganda drum every step of the way. With plenty of statements from various hospital staff, like this one:
Dr Jones, who works for Aneurin Bevan University Health Board in south-east Wales, said….
“It’s predominantly unvaccinated people we’re seeing and a number of these are people in their 20s and 30s, with a small number of under-16s requiring hospital care for Covid,” – BBC News
The US press have been equally compliant in this narrative, from CNN:
Hospitals are surging with unvaccinated patients infected with the Delta variant — which could affect car accident victims and other non-Covid-19 patients who need hospital care, doctors say.
“None of these patients thought they would get the virus, but the Delta variant has proven to be so highly contagious that even the young and the healthy, including pregnant patients, are now starting to fill up our hospitals,” said Dr. Neil Finkler – CNN
But again, where is the data?
Even Britain’s Chief Scientific Adviser Patrick Vallance said that 60% of people being admitted to hospital with COVID-19 were unvaccinated. Well, actually he originally said 60% of hospitalised patients with COVID-19 were double jabbed. Social media almost blew up following the statement; Vallance later corrected the statement from double jabbed to unvaccinated.
Now here in the UK, the Office of National Statistics handles all the data and presents it in various reports. There last report on data involving deaths by vaccination status used data from 2 January to 2 July 2021 and while this report is being used as the smoking gun evidence that indeed the unvaccinated are filling up the hospitals by vaccine worshippers, it does, as you probably guessed, have a major problem.
So here is the first piece of data you will come across in the document:
38,964 unvaccinated deaths involving COVID-19, making up 37.4% of all deaths in the time period from 2 January to 2 July 2021. Sounds pretty damning, doesn’t it?
This is the chart that immune system deniers will throw at you in defense of the beloved vaccine. This is also clearly where they stopped reading this document, as the following chart, featured further down in the document, gives us a clearer picture of this data.
I’ve added the dynamic graph using the embed code from document itself, you’ll notice how they really want you to take notice of the double vaccinated group in green, which yes, does have a particularly low death rate (we’ll get into that in a minute).
But first I’d like you to focus on just where this massive peak of unvaccinated deaths occurs. What do you notice?
Shock horror! It’s in the peak of winter when mortality is always at its highest and, wait for it, at a time when less than 5% of the population were vaccinated.
From march onwards, the numbers decline as the unvaccinated proportion of the population decreases and winter subsides into summer.
In fact, the vaccinated begin to rise above the unvaccinated.
But undeniably, yes, the double jabbed death rate does appear to be significantly lower from COVID-19 related deaths.
But here’s the thing, there have been more deaths following vaccination reported via the UK’s vaccine injury reporting system since the middle of March through to the beginning of March than there has of COVID-19 in the unvaccinated in the same timeframe.
The UK Column has created an improved frontend for the Governments Yellow Card reporting system HERE.

But what about Hospitalizations!
So it is clear the death data is, at the very least, misleading. We will have to wait for further data to determine whether the mortality rate is higher for the vaccinated compared to the unvaccinated, but for now we can see that vaccinated or not, summer has been upon us and your chance of death from this so-called COVID-19 is small.
But what about hospitalizations? After all, isn’t this what people keep preaching – “The unvaccinated are filling up our hospitals”.
Guess what, we do not have the data. But what we do know is that deaths over the past 6 months have been minimal from COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status. It is hard to imagine COVID-19 patients are having a significant impact on hospitals, the ridiculous track and trace system reducing hospital staff by up to 50% at any one time, maybe, but COVID-19 – I think not.
Well, if we look again at our yellow card data, we have over 350,000 reported adverse reactions following vaccination, and let us not forget that a previous study concluded that as little as 1% of adverse events are likely to be reported in these event monitoring systems.
The yellow card reporting system fails to provide us with details on adverse reactions that led to hospitalisation, however, if just 1% did result in hospitalisation, this would equate to over 3,500 hospitalisations.
There is also the argument with any of these adverse events to whether the vaccine was the cause, or merely coincidence – but this same argument is also true for events following a positive COVID-19 PCR test.
It should also be noted that there are multiple reports that it is in fact the vaccinated filling up the hospitals, not the unvaccinated:
Are Unvaccinated patients being treated equally?
Imagine if hosptials were intentionally mistreating the unvaccinated patients, now that would be scandalous!
Well, reports are coming in from around the World that exactly this is happening, such as this nurse speaking out in Australia:
As you would expect, the fact checkers have been all over this, but is it so hard to believe that even maybe unconsciously unvaccinated patients are not being given the same level of treatment as the vaccinated?
The motives are all there, the ‘told you so’ attitudes are strong and the loyalty of so many to the vaccine and its efficacy is cult-like.
As Dr Kernan Manion, the executive director of the Center for Physician Rights, said in a recent article published in The Guardian:
‘The patients I’ve dedicated my life to treating are now here because of their own negligence and now they’re imposing upon me and my team to treat them, while also exposing us to continued danger from this virus.” – The Guardian
So is it so hard to believe these people who have chosen their belief, chosen what they believe the best path to be in combatting COVID-19, could be giving better care to the vaccinated than the unvaccinated?
We Need More Data
In the end though, we need more data. I see no reason why this data should be publically accessible in real-time. Either the systems they have in place are so old and disconnected from each other that such access is not possible(which I find hard to believe), or they don’t want us to have the data in real-time.
At present we have data all over the place, typically missing multiple variables needed to give a clear picture of what exactly is happening.
However, as winter draws ever closer, I think we will begin to see a clearer picture of just how effective or ineffective these vaccines are regardless of data. Either way we all lose. There is no great outcome to any of this.
