The majority of Americans dying from Covid are vaccinated for the first time ever.

An analysis of official datafound that58 per cent of Covid deaths in August were in people who were vaccinated or boosted.

Experts caution this is always expected because such a large majority of the population has received at least the standard two-dose regimen.

Those more likely to die from Covid, for example the elderly and immunosuppressed, are also more likely to be vaccinated, further skewing the ratio.

But it is also true that as Covid has mutated, the vaccines have become less effective with regular boosters required to top-up immunity.

For example, in September last year, 23 per cent of Covid deaths were in vaccinated people, and byFebruary this year, this had risen to 42 per cent.

The elderly and other people at high risk of dying from Covid are also more likely to have had the shots compared to a young, healthy person.

This makes the chance of a vaccinated person dying from the disease increasingly likely.
