**BBC’s Prof Hannah Fry claims 8% of the UK’s population is unvaccinated. But this is a lie. UK Health Security Agency’s (“UKHSA’s”) latest report shows that almost 30% of the population, of all ages, has not had even one dose of Covid injections, with 20% of the population over the age of 18 being vaccine free.**

### Why is this important? Because accurate estimates of the proportion of people who are unvaccinated is critical in determining both vaccine efficacy and vaccine safety. BBC’s lie clearly has a major impact in exaggerating claims about “vaccine” safety and efficacy.

### “Within 2 hours of me posting this article and tweeting it, the BBC updated the article (see below) so it’s just as well I grabbed a screenshot of the original,” wrote Professor Norman Fenton.

### A new BBC documentary (hosted by mathematician Prof Hannah Fry) “seeks to understand why eight per cent of the population remain unvaccinated against Covid-19.”

### But, as pointed out by Clare Craig, the latest UKHSA Covid-19 surveillance report (dated 7 July 2022) reports something very different: almost 30% of the population of England eligible for the vaccine *has not had a single dose of the vaccine*. Even if we ignore those aged under 18 it is almost 20% without a single dose and almost 40% who have not had 3 doses.

*has not had a single dose of the vaccine*

### As we have shown in several of our own research articles, (see for example HERE and HERE) accurate estimates of the proportion of people who are unvaccinated is critical in determining both vaccine efficacy and vaccine safety. To see why suppose, for illustration, we know that in a given period there were one million people in a specific age group of whom one thousand died. Then the overall all-cause mortality rate is 1 in 1000. Suppose we know that 800 of those who died were vaccinated while 200 were not. Then:

***** If the true proportion of unvaccinated is 10% that means 200 out of 100,000
unvaccinated died (that’s a mortality rate of 1 in 500), while 800 out of 900,000
vaccinated died (that’s a mortality rate of 1 in 1,125). *So, the mortality rate in the
unvaccinated is **much higher** than that of the vaccinated.*

*much higher*

***** If the true proportion of unvaccinated is 30%, that means 200 out of 300,000
unvaccinated died (that’s a mortality rate of 1 in 1,150), while 800 out of 700,000
vaccinated died (that’s a mortality rate of 1 in 875). *So the mortality rate in the
unvaccinated is **much lower** than that of the vaccinated.*

*much lower*
