COVID study: Vaccines reduced hospitalizations, deaths by 39-47% during pandemic

A new study says COVID-19 vaccines worked to reduce hospitalizations and deaths in New York.

The report released by ASPE used a full year of data to study the impact of vaccines on hospitalization rates.

Vaccines were credited with 670,000 to 680,000 fewer hospitalizations and 330,000 to 370,000 fewer deaths among Medicare beneficiaries in 2021 across the U.S. The biggest reductions happened during the Delta surge, according to the authors.


In New York it found that COVID vaccines led to 41,200 fewer hospitalizations and 18,600 fewer deaths.

Overall, it represented a 39-47% reduction in hospitalization and death respectively.

Now, focus shifts to getting New Yorkers boosted for winter. There’s growing concern about the possibility of a rise in both COVID and influenza cases.
