Why It Matters

Evidence shows that unvaccinated individuals are far more vulnerable to becoming seriously ill and dying from COVID-19 than those who have been vaccinated.

  • Intensive care
  • A ventilator to help them breathe

More than 600,000 unvaccinated people have died from COVID-19 in the United States.
