Vaccinated make up minority of severe COVID-19 hospitalizations in Minnesota

Allina, Sanford data show fewer vaccinated COVID-19 patients need ventilators, intensive care

 

September 23, 2021

Updates from two large Minnesota hospital systems show that fully vaccinated people make up a minority of COVID-19 hospitalizations and an even lower share of severe illness requiring intensive care and ventilators.

Minneapolis-based Allina Health reported that 176 patients were hospitalized with COVID-19 on Monday and that 40 (or 22%) were vaccinated against the coronavirus that causes the infectious disease. Sioux Falls-based Sanford Health reported 159 patients with COVID-19 hospitalized on Tuesday across its facilities in the Dakotas and Minnesota, and that 16 (or 10%) were fully vaccinated.

The hospital systems are among the first in the nation to report their COVID-19 hospitalizations by severity and vaccination status, supplementing public health data and research suggesting that vaccine remains strongly protective against severe illness.
