Case rate higher in areas of most vaccination?


Recommended Posts

Going by screenshots of today's Covid-19 official data maps from the government, it appears that the case rate is higher in areas of England that have had the highest percentage of vaccinations. 




The first map shows an area of England that's had 2nd dose vaccinations (21.10.21). The darker the colour, the higher the percentage of people who've been vaccinated.


The second map shows a similar area of the country that shows the number of cases. The darker the colour, the more cases reported.


The areas that have had the most 2nd dose vaccinations, are the areas that have the most daily cases.


The areas that have had the least number of 2nd dose vaccinations, have the least number of cases.

Today's map of cases, compared to the map of vaccine uptake, still shows that London, where the least number of people have had the vaccine, is still the city where number of cases is the lowest, even after several months, as the above posts show.

A scientific-looking study found that high vaccination rates of countries are associated with more COVID cases, which is bizarrely called "no discernable relationship between percentage of population fully vaccinated and new COVID-19 cases in the last 7 days" (maybe this is why they included US counties in the study)!
Israel with its high, over 60% of their population, "fully vaccinated" rate had the highest COVID-19 cases per million people "in the last 7 days" (in September) of all countries.
Iceland and Portugal, that both have over 75% of their population "fully vaccinated", have much more COVID-19 cases per million people than low-vaxxed Vietnam or South Africa (with around 10% "fully vaccinated").


Also across the US, some counties with high COVID vaccination rates have more COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people "in the last 7 days" (in September) than low vaccinated counties (this is less of a trend than with the countries).


Of the top 5 counties that have the highest percentage of population fully vaccinated (99.9–84.3%), the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) identifies 4 of them as ‘High’ Transmission counties. Chattahoochee (Georgia), McKinley (New Mexico), and Arecibo (Puerto Rico) counties have above 90% of their population fully vaccinated with all three being classified as ‘High’ transmission. Conversely, of the 57 counties that have been classified as “low” transmission counties by the CDC, 26.3% (15) have percentage of population fully vaccinated below 20%.
