Americans who are unvaccinated against COVID-19 are much more likely to infected or hospitalized with the virus, a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) finds.

The report found that unvaccinated residents of Los Angeles had five times as many cases of Covid and 29 times as many hospitalizations than fully vaccinated people.
