Statistics from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services revealed that individuals who were vaccinated and “boosted” against COVID-19 were being hospitalized with coronavirus more than unvaccinated people in early May.
According to the University of North Carolina School of Medicine’s Dr. David Weber, who spoke to CBS 17 News, the reason that more vaccinated Americans were being hospitalized is because the Omicron COVID-19 variant provided unvaccinated Americans with natural immunity. “We don’t want this to sound like the vaccine doesn’t work,” Weber said.

Duke University Hospital Chief Medical Officer Dr. Lisa Pickett also spoke to CBS 17 News, and stated that hospitalized vaccinated patients in her hospital were mostly immunocompromised individuals who may not have had a proper response to the COVID-19 vaccines.
“Those are chronically ill, immunocompromised people who may not have had a full response to the [COVID-19] vaccines that they’ve received,” Pickett explained, adding that they are still less likely to require intensive care.
According to statistics from the NCDHHS, data from May 5 showed that only 48% of hospitalization cases were in those who had not received a COVID-19 vaccine, down from around 68% in January. 29% of hospitalized patients had been fully vaccinated, with 23% also being boosted, up from 27% and 5% in January respectively.
CBS 17’s Joedy McCreary noted that the current trend “looks pretty clear,” as “the [hospitalization] rate for the unvaccinated [is] coming way down, but going way up for boosted people.” Current trends show the unvaccinated and vaccinated at around 50% each of hospitalizations.
This comes as a number of high profile Democrats, Biden administration officials, and members of the global elite continue to be infected with COVID-19 despite having received up to four injections of the vaccine.
On Wednesday, Anthony Fauci, who is fully vaxxed and double boosted, tested positive for COVID-19, with the NIH in an official statement claiming he is experiencing “mild symptoms,” and will return to work when he tests negative.
Yesterday, Valiant News reported that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that he has been now-twice infected with COVID-19 despite being quadruple vaccinated against the coronavirus.
I’ve tested positive for COVID-19. I’ll be following public health guidelines and isolating. I feel okay, but that’s because I got my shots. So, if you haven’t, get vaccinated – and if you can, get boosted. Let’s protect our healthcare system, each other, and ourselves.

In May, Billionaire Microsoft founder and vaccine enthusiast Bill Gates on Twitter announced that too he had been infected with COVID-19 despite also being quadruple-vaccinated.
