How many must be vaccinated to prevent a serious covid outcome?

The government have recently released a document that was shared with the JCVI, the decision makers on who the vaccines should be offered to, no less than three months earlier in October 2022. The document answers the question – how many people would need to be vaccinated to prevent a hospital admission with covid? The numbers are in the tens of thousands, and far higher to prevent a single intensive care admission in all age groups under 60 years old.

The origins of a critical covid myth

The man in question was Dr Charles Chapin, Health Officer of Providence, Rhode Island from 1884 and, in 1926-7, president of the American Public Health Association.
