After Data Show Vaccinated at Higher Risk of Dying From COVID, Canadian Province Ends Monthly Reports
After the Manitoba, Canada, public health agency reported data showing those fully vaccinated (not boosted) for COVID-19 are at higher risk of dying from the virus compared to unvaccinated individuals, health officials stopped reporting on the data - a trend seen in other countries, including Scotland, the U.K. and the U.S.
Manitoba, population 1.4 million, was the first Canadian province whose public health agency reported data showing those who are fully vaccinated (not boosted) for COVID-19 are at higher risk of dying from COVID-19 compared to unvaccinated individuals.
The age-standardized data are from May 2022, but last appeared in Manitoba's August 3 report:
The risk of death for those who were boosted was the same as for unvaccinated individuals.
Though three months old, the May data are, as of this writing, the last reported by the Canadian province.
