As the more infectious Delta variant of the Coronavirus spread across Texas, public health experts concentrated their efforts exclusively on September to assess the effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Following the release of a new study by the Texas Department of State Health Services, it was discovered that during September, Texans who had not been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 were approximately 20 times more likely to die as a result of the virus and 13 times more likely to test positive than those who had been fully vaccinated.

Data from the four weeks between September 4 and October 1 were analyzed, and the results revealed that immunization had a significant protective impact across all ages studied.

While the influence varied among age groups, it was most noticeable in the youngest age brackets.

Compared to their vaccinated counterparts, unvaccinated persons in their 30s and 40s had a 23-fold increased chance of COVID-19 mortality, while those in their 50s and 60s had a 55-fold increased risk.

Only 10 COVID-19 fatalities occurred among fully vaccinated adults aged 18 to 29 in the study, compared to 84 deaths among unvaccinated people in the same age range.

Texas' first statistical analysis of the real-world effect of vaccination against COVID-19 in the state comes from this research, which linked computerized lab data and death certificates with state immunization records.
