Fact-checked: No, fully vaccinated people do not make up 60% of COVID-19 hospitalisations in the UK _

Stemming from a misstatement made by a health official in the UK, social media users have been spreading a false statistic that 60% of hospital admissions for COVID-19 have received two vaccination doses. The official corrected his misstatement after the fact. The actual figure is the opposite: 60% of the COVID-19 hospitalisations in the UK are unvaccinated. The AP has fact-checked this claim.
