A briefing from Public Health England (PHE) shows that as a hospital patient, you are six times more likely to die of the COVID Delta variant if you are fully vaccinated, than if you are not vaccinated at all.
The information shows up in Table 6 of the 77-page document, which the attendance to emergency care and deaths by vaccination status and confirmed Delta cases from February 1, 2021, to June 7, 2021.
Of 33,206 Delta variant cases admitted to the hospital, 19,573 were not vaccinated. Of those, 23 (or 0.1175%) died.
But, of the 13,633 patients who were vaccinated with either one or two doses, 19 (or 0.1393%) died, which is an 18.6% higher death rate than for the unvaccinated patients. Seven of the 5,393 patients who were partially vaccine with one dose died, or 0.1297%.
Of the 1,785 patients who had both vaccine doses 14 days or more before admission, 12 (or 0.6722%) died. This death rate is 5.72 times higher than that for unvaccinated patients. Put another way, if all 33,206 patients had been fully vaccinated, there would have been 223 deaths.

OMG – what a disaster
It’s a golden opportunity for Big Pharma, though. Now they can come up with an extremely expensive drug to remove the spike protein from the vaccinated population.
I have read that pine needle tea or dandelion leaf extract works- I am praying it does my 25 yr old daughter got it despite my trying to educate her- now she has agreed to take this to calm my fears that she will get deathly ill or die
Ponderosa pine needle tea will cause spontaneous abortion. Please make certain you are informing your daughter of this. It may be an important issue. Unless you don’t want to have grandkids.
That’s what the naturopaths here in New Zealand are recommending. I understand how you feel. A lot of members of my local Voices for Freedom group are dealing with similar worries about family members.
Look at pgs 15 and 51 of Mercola’s source to see the opposite of what he claims.

Hamanne, when he discussed Table 6 on page 15, he’s comparing death rates (as a percentage) and not the absolute number of deaths. The table on page 51 has nothing to do with death rates. It concerns vaccine effectiveness in preventing symptomatic disease.
Mercola’s claims are about death rates ans so is Table 6. Both charts show the effectiveness of vaccines. Mercola claims otherwise. BTW, Big Pharma is hated by the general public because of their prices for medicines, many of which keep people alive.
Mercola’s supplements are extremely expensive. How is he not Big Pharma of supplements?
Hamanne, the problem with pharmaceutical companies arises not from the expense of their products but from the billions they spend lobbying to control federal policy, mainstream media and the World Health Organization. Here are some articles you need to have a look at:
My ibig ssue is with medical frraud. Big Pharma is a what-about-ism red herring. Mercola has claimed a net worth of 100 million dollars. Sounds like Big Selling Something. Wikipedia,
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Mercola, describes his warnings by FDA. whjich is considered the gold standard around the world. The FTC shut him down on false advertising tanning beds that cured cancer. Several NYTimes articles list him as the #1 spreader of Covid disinformation on social media. Yea, it’s a big conspiracy against him according to his devotees.
I have a special reason for my feelings. I have a gullible sister who follows him and refuses vaccination, thinking that following his advice she has achieved natural imminity. She has also put rocks under her bed to stave off negative energy, thinks her exact time of birth is significant via astrology, buys tachyonized products even though phycisists have failed to find a single tachyon particle, believes reiki waves can be sent through the air. She has followed other osteopathic gurus who have lost their licenses. I fear for her life and those around her.
Much sound medical research is US government funded and has led to great success. UCSF et al have spend decades on researching mRNA for vaccines. The biggest harm by l people like Mercola is that real medical help may be delayed by people until it’s too late. I believe he and his ilk are most dangerous. Evidently, you found no contradition between the Mercaola article and the claimed source.
For my my own mental health, this is “my” last word and probably won’t return to thie site.

Thanks for your thoughtful response, Hamanne. You might be interested in this interview with Dr Peter McCullough, which you might want to share with your sister. Unfortunately there are a number of solid, peer-reviewed treatments for Covid 19 (other than vaccines) that are being suppressed by both the FDA and the CDC, owing to the malignant influence of the pharmaceutical companies they supposedly regulate. It makes me really sad that she resorts to putting rocks under her bad owing to lack of information about genuine alternatives for people who don’t want to be vaccinated.
If, say, 10 million people have been vaccinated, and 1000 have not, and 20 people from each group get seriously ill, I don’t completely understand how you get to “SIX TIMES MORE LIKELY”?
Not sure where you get your numbers from, elegsabiff. The article refers to 1,785 fully vaccinated and 33,206 unvaccinated.
¿Que? Quoting your article word for word – “Of 33,206 Delta variant cases admitted to the hospital, 19,573 were not vaccinated. Of those, 23 (or 0.1175%) died. But, of the 13,633 patients who were vaccinated with either one or two doses, 19 (or 0.1393%) died, which is an 18.6% higher death rate than for the unvaccinated patients.”
Put it this way, then, using your figures. The vaccination rate in the UK is comfortably over 80%. Therefore 19573 unvaccinated people infected come from under 20% of the population. By contrast, the lower figure of 13 533 (your figures) come from over 80% of the population. I think that statistic should be included in any calculations which start comparing risk, no? .
If you’d allowed my previous comment to appear it would have shown I’m not fanatically pro vaccination – it’s a cobbled-together part solution at best. However I am fervently pro getting what tatters of the economy remain back on track.Here’s my arm.
Thank you for explaining your thinking, elegsabiff. Dr Mercola’s article (as is the data it refers to) is five months old, elegsabiff, when a much lower proportion of of the population was vaccinated. I’m not sure how valuable it is to debate five month old data when more recent data is available, especially given the current debate how reliable the PCR is in diagnosing Covid.
