Vaccinated people are more likely than the unvaccinated in recent months to be a COVID-19 case, hospitalization, or death in 25 states, according to an Epoch Times investigation.
In Kentucky in June, for example, 67 percent of the deaths were among the vaccinated, according to data obtained by The Epoch Times.
That same month, the vaccinated made up 65 percent of COVID-19 cases, 64 percent of COVID-19 hospitalizations, and 66 percent of COVID-19 deaths in Wisconsin.
The numbers are a drastic change from 2021.
After the mass vaccination campaign in the United States gained momentum, virtually every state reported unvaccinated people making up the vast majority of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths.
The numbers began tilting while the Delta virus variant was dominant. They have tilted even more since the Omicron variant displaced Delta, according to the newly collated numbers.
The Epoch Times compiled the data from state health department websites and databases. Some were obtained through records requests and have never before been made public.
The statistics underline how vaccines have increasingly performed worse as newer virus variants emerged, according to some experts.
They are “clear evidence that the vaccines are not working to prevent disease and death,” Dr. Robert Malone, who helped invent the messenger RNA utilized in the two most widely-administered vaccines, told The Epoch Times.
Others argue the raw numbers don’t contribute to analyzing vaccine effectiveness because they must first be adjusted to account for factors such as age.
“Unless one is able to correct for age and health status, this number is misleading, and does not lead to the conclusion vaccines are ineffective,” Dr. Roger Klein, a policy adviser to The Heartland Institute and a former adviser to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other U.S. health agencies, told The Epoch Times via email.
Some states provide age-adjusted numbers, as recommended by the CDC.

Yes! Good people here on…CDC sauci is a godless kommunista and stone cold jackal…(as Rand Paul was able to extricate at past senate hearings) Bastard is at the roots of chinese wuhan dilly dilly floor!!
Vaccines prevent infection and seroconversion. They also prevent transmission.
There are no vaccinated people. There is no vaccine.
There are only those who have been given an unspecified shot (or several), and those who haven’t.
This kind of basic statistical error discredits everything else you write. Most people who die on Mount Everest are trained mountain climbers, but that doesn’t prove we should send babies.
79% of the country has had at least one vaccination. 67% is considered fully vaccinated, but the article just says “vaccinated”. If 65% of the deaths are vaccinated, then that’s less than 79%, so the vaccination must be helping. Not much, but the vaccinated 79% have better odds than the 21% unvaccinated.
Furthermore, the people most likely to be vaccinated are the old people and others who need it most. That raises the percentage of vaccinated deaths, even though the vaccination is helping. Even if you meant to say “fully vaccinated”, it’s helping.
OK, so vaccination isn’t helping as much as it helped last year, because of new variants. In a few days, the new omicron vaccination is expected to be approved, and the statistics you cite should improve.
There are also some wild claims about the frequency of side effects, but this article doesn’t raise that issue.

Well in the group of people I know, most of them got all the shots. And many are seniors. A majority of them have gotten COVID. Some have had it twice. However of the smaller group of people I know who did not get the shots, not a single one has gotten COVID. I know it’s not scientific but it is a trend in my circle. I’ll never take one of those jabs.
