(LifeSiteNews) – Nearly 60 percent of recent COVID-19 hospitalizations occurred in the “fully vaccinated,” according to new Medicare data.
A presentation last week for Project Salus, an AI-based COVID program of the Department of Defense (DOD), reported the findings from among a sample of 5.6 million Medicare beneficiaries, 80 percent of whom were over 65 years old.
“As the Delta variant became predominant, COVID-19 cases increased five-fold in the [over-65] population,” the report states. “In this 80% 65+ population, an estimated 60% of COVID-19 hospitalizations occurred in fully vaccinated individuals in the week ending August 7th.”
The “fully vaccinated” also made up more than 71 percent of COVID-19 cases as of August 21, according to the presentation, which was published online by the analytics firm Humetrix, a Project Salus partner.
COVID cases and hospitalizations among the vaccinated were likely far higher, however, as the Project Salus report did not include patients with one shot as “vaccinated” and only defined the double-jabbed as “fully vaccinated” two weeks after their second dose.
The presentation estimated vaccination rate partly by using the CDC’s COVID vaccination rate, due to unpublished vaccine information for around half of Medicare claims.
“Even with this high of a number, 60%, the real number is absolutely higher due to the skewed methods of how the government determines who is vaccinated. They are not including those that received 1 dose, only those that received 2 doses and a 14 day window has passed, and now Biden is saying boosters plus 2 shots will put you on the ‘fully vaccinated’ list,” said New York attorney and medical freedom advocate Thomas Renz, who uncovered the DOD documents.
The Project Salus data further confirms that the effectiveness of COVID mRNA vaccines begins to drop precipitously within just a few months of vaccination. The breakthrough infection rate among those vaccinated with either the Pfizer or Moderna jabs 5-6 months ago quadrupled from 100 in 100,000 in June to around 400 in 100,000 in August, with no signs of slowing down.
COVID breakthrough hospitalization particularly affected men, the elderly, and certain ethnic groups, like Native Americans and Hispanics. One slide of the presentation points to a more than 25 percent increased risk of hospitalization among males and around 50 percent higher risk for Native American patients.
The Project Salus findings reflect well-documented COVID vaccine failure in other countries, including Israel and the U.K., where the majority of COVID-19 deaths or hospitalizations attributed to the Delta variant have been reported in “fully vaccinated” people.
The data may also lend support to various experts’ fears that the vaccines could be leading to antibody-dependent enhancement, which happens when vaccination actually exacerbates disease complications rather than preventing them.
While the COVID vaccines increasingly fail to stop the spread of the virus or of serious illness, natural immunity from previous COVID infection “offers a major protective effect against breakthrough hospitalization,” the Project Salus report acknowledged.
It's official: Joe Biden has announced that his Administration will be forcing COVID vaccinations on nearly 1/3rd of American citizens, blatantly disregarding the personal objections of millions of people and moving America ever closer towards a medical dictatorship.
We cannot stand for this unprecedented overreach, and we will not submit to Biden's tyrannical public coercion efforts.
Please SIGN this urgent petition informing the President that you will NOT comply with these unconstitutional vaccine mandate orders issued by the Biden Administration, and that elected officials should act in their capacity to block these intrusive demands.
On Thursday, September 9th, Joe Biden announced the latest round of federal orders meant to further coerce large swaths of the public into getting the COVID vaccine -- many against their will.
While the legal standing of these measures is, at best, dubious, the Biden Administration appears more ready than ever to gut our individual rights and practically erase medical autonomy in our country.
This latest escalation in overreach was announced via a televised speech in which Biden outlined a new "six-point plan" that includes far more than just six avenues to achieve mass medical compliance.
Among the most egregious new federal mandates are the following:
- A requirement that all private businesses employing more than 100 people mandate their workers get the Covid-19 vaccine or submit to weekly testing (to be implemented by way of a new Department of Labor rule)
- A requirement that all federal employees and federal contractors get the COVID vaccine
- A requirement that all healthcare workers in facilities that receive reimbursement from Medicare and/or Medicaid (an estimated 17 million) get the Covid-19 vaccine without an alternative testing option
- A requirement that all Head Start teachers get the COVID vaccine
- A federal effort to lobby states to implement vaccine mandates for all school employees, and require regular testing of all students and school staff
- A federal effort to lobby entertainment venues to require proof of vaccination or testing in order to grant entry to the public
- A continuation of mask mandates on all federal properties and during interstate travel (i.e. planes, trains, buses)
All in all, these new vaccine mandates, which will go into effect within the coming weeks, will affect an estimated 100 million American workers -- 2/3rds of the entire workforce!
And, according to an administration official, violations of these unconstitutional requirements could result in fines of up to $14,000.
While this is clearly a political ploy on the part of the Joe Biden and his team of power-hungry Washington insiders to shift the focus from their disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, the American public knows better: After nearly a year and a half's worth of arbitrary, ever-changing, and unconstitutional government mandates in response to the COVID outbreak, it was always a given that the Biden Administration would ramp things up even further when it behooved them.
And now, it would seem that time has officially come.
"This is not about freedom or personal choice," Biden uttered in his remarks, confirming his administration's blatant dismissal of all Americans' right(s) to accept or decline the experimental Covid-19 vaccine.
This is a stunning reversal from Biden's declaration last December that "I don’t think [the vaccine] should be mandatory, I wouldn’t demand it to be mandatory."
In fact, Biden even confirmed his intention to flout states' rights in the process, warning that "If these governors won’t help us beat the pandemic I’ll use my power as president to get them out of the way."
These are not the words of an "empathetic" leader; these are the words of an aspiring dictator. And, for the time being, the only way to stop Joe Biden's tyranny is through mass noncompliance.
As we've said from the beginning, science, basic logic, and common sense should dictate policy regarding COVID and the Delta variant.
But Joe Biden and the federal government have long abandoned those principles throughout this crisis, culminating into this disturbing yet inevitable flurry of intrusive vaccine mandates that use people's jobs, individual autonomy, and livelihood as leverage.
This assault on our individual rights, private businesses, and American workers cannot be tolerated, and the easiest way to combat these unlawful orders is to just say NO.
Please SIGN and SHARE this most important petition letting Joe Biden know that you will NOT comply with the unconstitutional medical demands being made by this administration, and that action should be taken to block any intrusive action against working Americans and private employers.

The new data flies in the face of repeated assertions from the Biden administration that COVID-19 has become a “pandemic of the unvaccinated.” “Breakthrough cases remain rare and almost all are mild cases,” Joe Biden falsely claimed earlier this month in his announcement of COVID vaccine mandates for tens of millions of Americans in the private sector. “In fact, virtually all hospitalizations and deaths are among the unvaccinated,” he said.
“This definitively proves that Biden and his cronies at DHHS are outright lying when they claim this is a crisis of the ‘unvaccinated.’ It’s just the opposite,” Thomas Renz said in a press release on Friday. “It is a crisis of the poor Americans that believed Big Gov, Big Media, Big Pharma, and Big Tech when they promoted lies that the vaccines were ‘safe and effective.’”
“It is unquestioningly a manipulative marketing for profit and power scheme, at the expense of Americans lives.”
The latest revelations from Renz come days after he announced that data obtained from a government whistleblower revealed that around 50,000 Medicare patients have died shortly after taking the COVID jab.
