According to official data, nearly 60% of those under 50 who were killed by Covid in the UK in November 2012 were not vaccinated.

  • Last month, there were 156 deaths in the UK among under-50s due to a Covid positive test.  
  • Unvaccinated people accounted for 57% of all deaths within the same age bracket, showing their vulnerability
  • NHS employees are unhappy, and claim that there could have been fewer deaths. 

According to official data, almost six of the 10 Covids who died last month in Covid among children under 50 were not vaccinated.

The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA), which collects data, shows that 156 people under 50 died in the first 28 days after a positive Covid test. 89 had never come forward to receive a Covid jab.

These figures represent 57% of all deaths within the age group, and show how at-risk the unvaccinated can be after contracting Covid.

There is no data available on UK vaccination rates by age. However, almost 80 percent of the 18-49-year-olds living in England have been double-jabbed. This means that there are fewer unvaccinated people.

NHS staff are disappointed with these figures. They believe that if unvaccinated Britons came forward, they could avoid hospital admissions or deaths.

This comes just as the Prime Minister announced plans this week to increase the boost rollout to 53 million adults in the UK, to improve protection against serious illness and death during the winter months.

Data from the UK Health Security Agency shows 156 people aged 50 and under died in November within 28 days of a positive Covid test and 89 of them had not come forward for a single Covid jab. There were 61 deaths among vaccinated people, while the vaccination status were not recorded among six fatalities. Deaths among the unjabbed equate to 57 per cent of deaths in the age group and lay bare how the unvaccinated are most at-risk from severe outcomes after catching Covid. No data is available for UK-wide vaccination uptake by age, but nearly 80 per cent of 18 to 49-year-olds in England are double-jabbed, meaning the number of unvaccinated deaths occured in a much smaller group of people

The UK Health Security Agency data shows that 156 people 50 years and younger died within 28 days after a positive Covid test. 89 had not yet come forward to receive a Covid jab. Sixteen fatalities were caused by Covid, but only 61 of those who had been vaccinated died. Unjabbed death rates represent 57% of the deaths among this age group. This shows how vulnerable the unvaccinated people are to severe complications after contracting Covid. There is no data available on UK vaccination coverage by age. However, almost 80 percent of the 18-49-year-olds living in England have been double-jabbed. This means that there are fewer unvaccinated people.

UK sees an increase in daily Covid cases by 14%, but there are fewer deaths and more hospital admissions.

The number of Covid cases in Britain is on the rise, reaching more than 53,000 today according to official Government data. There are fears that Omicron could disrupt Christmas plans.

UK Health Security Agency data showed that 53,945 people had positive results within the last 24 hours. That’s 14.2% higher than last Thursday’s 47,240 and is the highest number since July 17.

This was the second consecutive day that cases increased in week-on-week. Only the second week in which cases exceeded the 50,000 mark has also been recorded.

Although only 42 Omicron cases were confirmed so far in the UK, there are indications that Omicron could be increasing domestically.

The number of deaths from the virus has fallen to 141, a decrease of 4.1% from the 147 cases last week.

Hospitalisations dropped as well, with 700 admissions on Sunday (the latest data available). This was six percent less than the 745 that were recorded the week before. 

 The UKHSA data, which covers the four weeks up to November 28, shows 3,571 people died across the UK within 28 days of a positive Covid test. These deaths may not all be caused directly by Covid.

There were eight deaths in the under-18 age group. Seven of them were not jabbed. One child’s vaccination status was unknown.

Twelve people died between 18 and 29 years old. Of these, eight were not fully vaccinated. Three were given their first dose, three received another, and two had been double-jabbed.

36 people were between 30-40 years old. Twenty-four people died from this condition, including three who were not vaccinated. Three were single-jabbed, six received both and one of the vaccines. The vaccination status wasn’t known for two of the people who died.

100 deaths occurred in the 40 to 49 age group. There were 50 people who died without being vaccinated; three cases of single jabbed and four others with full vaccinations.

Nicki Credland, chairwoman of the British Association of Critical Care Nurses, told the Times: ‘Staff feel frustrated with this . . . [intensive care] is in for a very difficult winter and it is very hard to cope with when some admissions could have been avoided.’

After Boris Johnson’s Tuesday unveiling of the UK’s massive new booster vaccine drive, it comes as a surprise.

To protect the country against Omicron supermutant Covid, he promised to give third doses of the drug to adults before January 31.

Mr Johnson announced he is drafting in the Army again to help deliver the programme and will offer GPs an extra £15 for every injection as he promised to deliver another ‘great British vaccination effort’.

A £5 bonus will be given to GPs per shot if they do them on Sundays and they will get a £30 premium for shots delivered to the most vulnerable who are unable to leave their homes. 

In addition to the paid vaccine volunteers, 10,000 additional volunteers are being recruited by the Government.
