Unvaccinated adults hospitalized with Covid-19 cost the American health system at least $2.3 billion in June and July this year, according to research by the Kaiser Family Foundation, most of which will be borne by society as a whole and not by the unvaccinated patients.

Over 100,000 Covid-19 hospitalizations could have been prevented by vaccination in June and July, research by Kaiser found.

These preventable hospitalizations cost the U.S. healthcare system around $2.3 billion, the Kaiser report said, based on an average Covid-19 hospitalization costing around $20,000.

Due to laws preventing insurers from charging unvaccinated people higher premiums, the Kaiser report said the bill will fall on everyone as they will pay only “a small share of the cost” directly.
