The latest medical study revealed that those people who received the COVID-19 vaccine are less likely to die of any cause than those who are not vaccinated.
The study which was posted on the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website on Friday, was conducted from December 2020–July 2021 among approximately 11 million persons enrolled in seven Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) sites.
“After standardizing mortality rates by age and sex, this study found that COVID-19 vaccine recipients had lower non-COVID-19 mortality than did unvaccinated persons,” CDC said on its website.
The study was conducted by Stanley Xu from Kaiser Permanente Southern California who took into account people who received the Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.
In his study, Xu discovered that those who received multiple doses of any vaccine had lower mortality rates than those who received only one dose.
Xu also discovered that those who received mRNA vaccines such as the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna shots had lower mortality rates than people who were vaccinated with the Johnson & Johnson shot, a viral vector vaccine.
Moreover, the study also shows that the vaccines are safe to administer and effective against the disease.
“COVID-19 vaccines authorized in the United States have been shown again and again to be safe,” Xu said.
