Are unvaccinated people 17 times more likely to be hospitalized?

Jen Psaki

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki: “You are 17 times more likely to go to the hospital if you are not vaccinated, 20 times more likely to die.”

PolitiFact’s statement: True

This is why: On Jan. 10, as the U.S. reported 1.35 million new COVID-19 cases — the highest daily total for any country ever recorded — White House press secretary Jen Psaki faced resistance to President Joe’s claim. Biden that the pandemic at the moment “a pandemic of unvaccinated people.”

During a press conference that day, Fox News reporter Peter Doocy suggested Biden’s characterization was inaccurate.

“I understand that science says vaccines prevent death,” he said. “But I’ve been vaxxed three times, still have COVID. You’ve been vaxxed three times, still have COVID. Why does the president still refer to this as an ‘unvaccinated pandemic’?”
