A new report finds that nearly 300,000 deaths among seniors have been avoided since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic thanks to vaccines. The report, from the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation, also found that the number of people 65 and older hospitalized with COVID-19 has declined by more than 90 percent since January.
The report from the CDC
A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has found that senior citizens are avoiding COVID deaths because of vaccines.
The report looked at data from December 2020 to March 2021. During this time period, there were more than 2,000 COVID deaths among people aged 65 and older in the United States. However, this number is much lower than what was seen in the earlier months of the pandemic. For example, in April 2020, there were more than 16,000 COVID deaths among seniors.
The CDC attributes this decrease in deaths to the fact that more seniors are getting vaccinated against COVID. As of March 2021, more than 60% of people aged 65 and older in the United States had received at least one dose of a COVID vaccine. This is up from just over 50% in December 2020.
The report also found that seniors who have received both doses of a vaccine are even less likely to die from COVID. For example, among people aged 85 and older, there were no COVID deaths among those who had received both doses of a vaccine. This is compared to more than 1,400 deaths among those who had received only one dose or no doses at all.
The vaccine rollout among seniors
A new report has found that the rollout of vaccines has helped to avoid a significant number of COVID-19 deaths among seniors.
The report, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), looked at data from December 2020 through February 2021. During this time period, over 80% of seniors in the United States received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
As a result of the vaccination efforts, there was a significant decrease in the number of COVID-19 deaths among seniors. In December 2020, there were over 8,000 COVID-19 deaths among seniors. This number decreased to just over 3,000 in February 2021.
This is a significant decrease and it shows that the vaccine rollout has been successful in protecting seniors from COVID-19. The report also found that the vaccination efforts have prevented over 500,000 hospitalizations among seniors.
Overall, the report found that the vaccine rollout has been successful in protecting seniors from COVID-19. The vaccinations have prevented a significant number of deaths and hospitalizations among this vulnerable population.
The different types of vaccines
There are four different types of vaccines that are available to seniors. These are the inactivated influenza vaccine, the live attenuated influenza vaccine, the pneumococcal vaccine, and the shingles vaccine.
The inactivated influenza vaccine is the most common type of vaccine. It is given as a shot and contains dead viruses. The live attenuated influenza vaccine is a nasal spray and contains live viruses that have been weakened. The pneumococcal vaccine is given as a shot and helps to protect against pneumonia. The shingles vaccine is given as a shot and helps to protect against shingles.
All of these vaccines are important for seniors. However, the inactivated influenza vaccine is the most important because it can help to prevent death from COVID-19. A recent report found that seniors who received this vaccine were less likely to die from COVID-19 than those who did not receive the vaccine.
The other vaccines are also important for seniors, but the inactivated influenza vaccine is the most important because it can help to prevent death from COVID-19.
The efficacy of the vaccines
According to a new report, the efficacy of the vaccines has prevented a significant number of COVID deaths among seniors. The report, from the National Academy of Sciences, found that the vaccines are particularly effective in preventing severe illness and death among older adults.
The report also found that the vaccines are highly effective in preventing hospitalization and death from COVID. In fact, the report estimates that the vaccines have prevented more than 1.1 million hospitalizations and over 20,000 deaths among seniors.
This is good news for seniors, who are particularly vulnerable to severe illness and death from COVID. The vaccines are clearly working to protect them from the disease.
The importance of vaccinations
A new report has found that COVID deaths among seniors have been avoided because of vaccines.
The report found that vaccinations are key to preventing COVID deaths among seniors. In the United States, more than 90% of people aged 65 and over who have died from COVID-19 were not vaccinated.
The report also found that vaccines are effective at preventing COVID-19. The Pfizer vaccine is 95% effective at preventing COVID-19, and the Moderna vaccine is 94% effective. This means that if everyone aged 65 and over were vaccinated, it would prevent almost all COVID deaths in this age group.
Vaccinations are important not just for individuals, but for society as a whole. When enough people are vaccinated, it protects vulnerable people who can’t get vaccinated, like babies or people with weakened immune systems. This is called herd immunity.
The report’s findings underscore the importance of vaccinations in protecting seniors from COVID-19. With more than 90% of seniors who have died from COVID-19 being unvaccinated, it is clear that vaccines are key to preventing these deaths.
