The latest UKHSA report did come out today. The Table 12 data that calculates rates was riddled with errors. I e-mailed them to let them know their spreadsheet wasn't calculating correctly, hopefully they will amend it, as their table appears to be looking up population data incorrectly for some of the age groups. The cases, hospitalizations and deaths tallies were valid, so I ran a comparison with the week 51 data to see where things were changing and here are the takeaways:
Cases increased across all age groups, vaccinated or not (about an 80% increase for vaccinated individuals compared to 36% increase for unvaccinated individuals). The rate of increase among vaccinated individuals was about double what it was for unvaccinated individuals. Sharpest rise was among those 70 and above.
Hospital ER visits increased across all age groups, with the exception of 40-59 unvaccinated individuals who actually had a decrease in visits. The overall rate of increase among vaccinated individuals was more than triple what it was for unvaccinated individuals. The only vaccinated group that saw a less steep increase than unvaccinated groups was the under 18 category that had about a 5% lower increase than the unvaccinated group (vaccinated hospital visits increased by 89.8% for vaccinated individuals and 94.5% unvaccinated individuals in the under 18 category). For the 30-69 age groups, hospitalizations held essentially flat for unvaccinated individuals (2273 vs 2253) and increased by 55% for vaccinated individuals (3701 vs 2386). The sharpest rise was among the old and the young. Under 29 hospital visits increased by 336% among vaccinated individuals (857 vs 255) and 194% among unvaccinated individuals (1649 vs 850). Over 70 hospital visits increased by 229% among vaccinated individuals (4,831 vs 2345) and 138% among unvaccinated individuals (816 vs 590).
Deaths over the 4-week period remained relatively flat, with a slight increase of 7.5% overall.
