THL: Unvaccinated face significantly greater risk of hospitalisation than those vaccinated
August-October the unvaccinated were 19 times more likely than others to end up in specialised health care and 33 times more likely to end up in intensive care.
For example, when vaccination coverage is 80 percent, the vaccinated outnumber the unvaccinated among those aged 12 and above.
Three reasons to take a coronavirus vaccine:
– The vaccine protects you against the serious form of coronavirus disease.
– The vaccine that you take protects those close to you and those belonging to medical risk groups.
– By being vaccinated you help ensure that those with serious illnesses other than coronavirus disease can get the care that they need.
