In six months, no fewer than 640 people who were fully vaccinated died from COVID-19 in England, accounting for one per cent of deaths, new figures have shown.

Of the 51,281 people who died of the virus from January 2  to July 2, some 38,964 were unvaccinated, while a tiny proportion had received two doses, according to Office for National Statistics (ONS) Monday, September 13 publication.

During the period, which includes the early stages of the vaccine rollout, only 640 people with complete vaccinations people died with COVID-19.

That figure represents 1.25 per cent of the CoVID deaths in the first six months of 2021.

The report adds that just 256 of those who died were among people infected more than two weeks after their second jab as it takes two weeks for full protection to kick in after a second jab.

The ONS explained that ‘61.1% of breakthrough deaths occurred in males, compared to 52.2% and 48.5% for other COVID-19 deaths and for non-COVID-19 deaths respectively’.

”The median age of breakthrough deaths was 84, compared to 82 for other COVID-19 deaths and for non-COVID-19 deaths.

‘’13.1% of breakthrough deaths occurred in people who were identified as likely to be immunocompromised from hospital episodes or causes of death, compared to 5.4% for other COVID-19 deaths.”

However, the ONS added that some deaths are expected in vaccinated individuals as no vaccine is 100 per cent effective.

The figures tend to prove that vaccines dramatically reduce the risk of dying with the illness.
