Everybody On The Internet Is Wrong

If you want to know what proportion of Covid deaths are of vaccinated people, you perform the advanced math calculation of:

(# of people vaccinated who died of covid)
(# of people who died of covid)

Age-adjusted mortality rates by vaccination status (everybody's favorite graph) do not answer this question! And congratulations on joining conservatives with "dying with covid is different than dying from covid!" Bonus points for "buhh comorbidities."

It is true this doesn't tell us much about the effectiveness of vaccines! It just tells us that however effective they are, vaccinated people are still dying.

(I am responding to various people calling me an idiot all over the internet).
