Six-fold Increased Risk of Hospitalization
In this week’s Media Blackout series from the Vigilant Fox, #10 is a report of a pre-print study in Estonia where COVID “vaccines” had negative efficacy with regard to COVID hospitalization, as compared to naturally-acquired immunity.
This is the opposite of the official mantra which states that jabs lower the risk of hospitalization — though the comparison group was ambiguous in official statements, which prevented anyone from asking if natural immunity was better.
While the authors provide an adjusted hazard ratio (aHR) for hospitalization during the period when Delta variant predominated — “vaccine-induced” immunity led to 7 times the risk of COVID hospitalization vs. natural immunity (green cell, I7 below) — they did not report an aHR for the entire 8-month stretch of time, which includes 2 months of Omicron.
Using imputed person-years, I put together a weighted average adjusted hazard ratio (orange cell; N14):

The phrase “IR per 100kpy” is shorthand for “incidence rate per 100,000 person-years.”
Evidence suggests that, regardless of whether it was Delta variant or Omicron, “vaccine-induced” immunity led to 6.7 times the risk of hospitalization when compared to natural immunity.
The lower protection against hospitalization is likely the result of immune imprinting, where the “vaccine” turns your immune system into a “one-trick pony” (only able to ward off the exact variant it was coded for). Whereas naturally-acquired immunity is more broad and provides immunity even to future variants.
