Prayer #401: For Drastic Hospitalization Reductions Among Seniors After Vaccination
The Centers for Diseases Control (CDC) just concluded a study that indicates that the risk of COVID-related hospitalization for seniors (65+) has been reduced by 94% following full vaccination. In the study, hospital records for 417 patients over 65 were examined, including 230 controls who tested negative for COVID-19, and 187 patients who tested positive. Twenty-four hospitals in over a dozen states were included in the study. "These findings are encouraging, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle P. Walensky said, "and welcome news for the two-thirds of people aged 65 and up who are already fully vaccinated. COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective and these real-world findings confirm the benefits seen in critical trials, preventing hospitalizations among those most vulnerable. The results are promising for our communities and hospitals. As our vaccination efforts continue to expand, COVID-19 patients will not overwhelm health care systems, leaving hospital staff, beds, and services available for people who need them for other medical conditions."
We do want to thank God for this great reduction in the risk of hospitalization from COVID for fully vaccinated seniors. Continue to pray for the complete demise of COVID-19 in the U.S. and around the world.
