Between late December and late January, vaccinated people in Ontario were infected at a higher rate than vaccinated people . In late January this switched to a higher rate among unvaccinated , however by late February this reversed again. Vaccinated people are now being infected with COVID at a higher rate than unvaccinated people in Ontario for the second time this year.
Haaretz reports “On January 29, ministry figures showed the death rate per 100,000 people under 60 to be 0.1 for the unvaccinated, 0.2 for the partially vaccinated and zero for the fully vaccinated” in Israel.
In Israel “partially vaccinated” includes people who have received 1 or 2 doses.
This means that people under 60 years old who have been vaccinated with 1 or 2 doses are dying at twice the rate of unvaccinated people in Israel.
Vaccinated elderly people in British Columbia are being hospitalized at a much higher rate than unvaccinated people. According to this chart from the BCCDC, people over 70 with 2 doses are hospitalized at a rate 80x higher than unvaccinated over 70. (Editor’s note: It seems possible this is an error with ZERO unvaccinated over 70 in hospital, however they have yet to correct it if it is)
The data also shows that boosted individuals make up a whopping 44% of deaths, while only making up 18% of the population. Notably, this is a higher increase than the unvaccinated. While the unvaccinated proportion of death is under double the unvaccinated population, the boosted proportion of death is well over double the boosted population. (Editor’s note: these number have been changing rapidly, this is just a snapshot in time)
A quick glance at https://covid-19.ontario.ca/data/ shows that the rate of infection among vaccinated individuals sits at 69.74 per 100k whereas the unvaccinated rate is 54.77 per 100k.

We have been reporting this unadjusted data for the past 2 weeks, but mainstream media seems to only be interested in repeating age adjusted numbers in order to keep the established narrative going. The truth is that vaccinated people are catching COVID at a higher rate than unvaccinated people according to Government of Ontario data, just like the unadjusted BC numbers show.
British Columbia has spent the past month not providing recent updates regarding infection rate by vaccination status. We speculated that was because the numbers are similar to Ontario and Quebec where vaccinated people are more likely to get infected. Now BC has released the data and it is exactly as we suspected.
BC numbers show that the rate of infection is higher among 2-dose vaccinated people than unvaccinated. This is the same as Ontario and Quebec, and we are sure Saskatchewan too.
The BC data also shows that booster shots are not preventing infection.
A study conducted by University of Copenhagen, Statistics Denmark, & Statens Serum Institute found that omicron is infecting vaccinated individuals at a much faster pace.
“Comparing households infected with the Omicron to Delta VOC, we found an 1.17 times higher SAR for unvaccinated, 2.61 times higher for fully vaccinated and 3.66 times higher for booster-vaccinated individuals, demonstrating strong evidence of immune evasiveness of the Omicron VOC,”
