Last week, Covid-19 hospitalizations decreased 2 percent among less or non-vaccinated Vermonters, while rising 9 percent among the fully vaccinated, Vermont Department of Health statistics say.
Hospitalization among unvaccinated/not-fully-vaccinated Vermonters remains 3.2 times greater than vaccinated Vermonters. The statistics show the gap of infection and hospitalization rate – long much higher among the unvaxxed/not-fully-vaxxed – growing smaller in recent weeks.
The health department weekly briefing for at least the second consecutive week offers no statistics about the vaccination status of recent Covid-19 fatalities. Vermont Daily Chronicle has asked spokespeople for both the department and the Scott administration for this information, but without success. During the press conference, administration officials said 19 Vermonters have died of Covid-19 during October, but no further breakdown was available. Gov. Scott promised to provide that information.
The week’s rate of infection also increased the most steeply among fully-vaccinated Vermonters. Gov. Scott was asked why 89%-vaccinated Vermont is experiencing a strong increase in infections, when the rest of the nation is seeing a welcome decline. He had no specific answer. “It is frustrating in a lot of different regards. There are a lot of different theories out there. … Hopefully this will get through in the next couple of weeks, and we’ll start our downturn.”
“We ask this question every day,” Levine said. “Bottom line, this is Delta.” He also noted less-vaccinated counties are showing higher infection rates.
Scott later noted that Vermont is the third high-testing state in the U.S., which may contribute to the state’s high infection rate where elsewhere it’s declining.
Scott and Human Services Agency Secretary Mike Smith both decried an apparent attempt of anti-vax mandate protesters to inhibit a vaccination clinic at the Doubletree–Hilton Monday.

Oh sure he cherry picks countries, without naming them, to support his assertion
but disregards countries in full recovery mode using alternative meds that this country has banned.. We’re being led imbeciles. Scott also can’t see the writing in front of his nose even when he states it.. we’re high vaxed and their getting the curd more and more… you don’t see a correlation there scottie????
The number of those vaccinated and testing positive just goes to show what happens when you blindly believe and follow what the liberal socialist government tells you to do. Stop allowing you and your family to be “vaccinated”!
