Vermont the most vaccinated US state (67% jabbed[x2]). Their excess deaths tells a fascinating story

US Mortality is a United States mortality monitoring activity, aiming to detect and measure excess deaths related to seasonal influenza, pandemics and other public health threats. Official mortality statistics are provided weekly by CDC. During the current COVID-19 pandemic, information on its mortality impact is of major concern. Kindly note that any use of data or information originating from the USMortality website must be appropriately quoted and acknowledged.


Vermont


25-44 years = +1050%

45-64 years = +51.8%

65-74 years = +23%

75-84 years = -1.6%

85+ years = +6.2%


Rationale

Mortality is a basic indicator of health. With the emergence of new diseases or threats of epidemics (e.g. pandemic influenza, SARS), decision makers will need such data to estimate the severity of the problem and inform any initiatives to be put in place as part of an effective public health response.


Mortality monitoring becomes pivotal during influenza or other pandemics for several reasons. In a severe pandemic, mortality monitoring can be a robust way to monitor the pandemics progression and its public health impact when other systems are failing, due to an overburdened health care sector.


The timely assessment of the impact of such exposures is required to guide public health measures, e.g. help to vulnerable groups.
