33 patients were in a Flemish hospital with Covid between 16 and 22 October.  70.9% were fully vaccinated, 29.1% were not.  Looking at Belgium as a whole, the figures for the same period shows 54% of Covid patients in hospital were fully vaccinated, a reflection of the lower vaccination rates in some parts of the country*. report

* Once again, a comparison that implies that the vaccinated and the unvaccinated have the same level of risk of infection, hospitalisation and death. If they have the same risk, then what was the vaccine for? And why is this false comparison never questioned?
