Assessing your death rate before getting vaccinated, especially if you have no underlying health conditions

 

Vaccines are usually tested for 4 to 5 years before getting FDA approval. The COVID-19 vaccines are being approved under emergency use authorization. So, before getting injected with a COVID-19 vaccine that has not been adequately tested and is not FDA approved, it might make sense to calculate your infection fatality rate -- That's the odds of you dying if you catch the virus. You want to weigh the risks (including the unknown long-term risks) associated with getting the vaccine versus the odds of dying from the virus if you catch it.

 

If we simply look at the COVID-19 rates of death by age, this is what we have...

However, the above stats lump healthy and unhealthy people together. If you aren't aren't overweight, aren't diabetic, don't have high blood pressure or other serious medical conditions, it would appear that you should not be looking at the above bloated stats to assess your risk. Your odds of dying are less than the above chart indicates.

 

How much less? If we calculate strictly based on CDC data, it would appear to be much less!

 

According to the CDC's data from February 2, 2020, to August 22, 2020, only 6 percent of the 161,392 reported COVID deaths were listed as COVID-19 alone. This is a very significant stat! If you in fact have no comorbidities, then your statistical risk of dying is much lower.

But wait! It gets even better! Remember that the CDC only tracked data until August 22, 2020. Since then, treatments have improved. According to a study, monoclonal antibody treatment has reduced the risk of hospitalization and death by 70%. Furthermore, if treated very early (soon after developing symptoms) with low dose hydroxychloroquine and zinc, this further improves outcomes. Many doctors have not done their research regarding hydroxychloroquine and refuse to prescribe it. This has increased death rates.

 

NOTES:

Keep in mind that it is critical to know whether or not you have comorbidities. Fortunately you can get tested for diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure, etc.

 

Also, we are assuming the 6% rate of deaths in people with no comorbidities is consistent across all age groups.

 

Also, if you have just one comorbidity, it might be unfair to lump you in with all people with multiple comorbidities who died. The CDC's group of 'patients who died with comorbidities' averaged 2.6 comorbidities.
