Vaccinated Americans a majority of COVID deaths for first time in August: analysis

For the first time since the beginning of the pandemic, a majority of Americans dying from the coronavirus were at least partially vaccinated, according to a new analysis of federal and state data. 

The waning efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines and increasingly contagious strains of the virus being spread to elderly and immunocompromised people have resulted in more deaths among those who have taken at least one vaccine dose, a Washington Post analysis published Wednesday finds. 

“Fifty-eight percent of coronavirus deaths in August were people who were vaccinated or boosted,” the Post reported.
