‘ Pro-Trump counties continue to suffer far higher COVID death tolls ‘

“ The scale of the preventable loss of life is staggering. According to a recent analysis by Brown University, nearly 320,000 lives nationwide could have been saved if more people had chosen to get vaccinated. The Brown analysis also shows a partisan split in how those preventable deaths are distributed. States that went most heavily for Trump – including Wyoming and West Virginia – have among the highest rates of preventable deaths, while states that voted heavily for Biden – such as Massachusetts and Vermont – had among the lowest. “

I wish we heard this fact mentioned more often in the news.

As the political season heats back up, I’m sure we’ll be hearing that more people have died of Covid under Biden than Trump, but that was largely a personal choice among people who could have been vaccinated but wouldn’t accept it.

Politifact:

…and WaPo, last month, using CDC data:

Does “fully vaccinated” not include those who had boosters? That doesn’t make sense, but according to the graph, that’s what it looks like.

Fully vaccinated = two full doses.
Fully boosted = two additional doses.

Once again, the pandemic has been a test of numeric literacy.

CDC definition now includes one booster, if eligible, to be "fully vaccinated."

Ouch, and I imagine your family member is fully vaxxed and boosted. Take care.

If this virus was a little more deadly, it would have put a big crimp in Republican's gerrymandering.

It looks like one booster resulted in quite strong immunity, based on the graph.

And thanks to pdq for including it.

Same here. Self and extended family (5 married bothers w/kids, grandkids etc.) with a bunch of educators strewn throughout escaped until this month. Daughter two weeks ago then grandson last week both fully vaxxed experienced nothing more than head and mild body aches.

Friends and acquaintances marvel at the family and invariably tell us how "lucky" we are - no we're not lucky so much as vigilant and prepared.
