A study by the American Journal of Medicine has revealed that people who skipped the COVID-19 vaccination are at a high risk of being involved in car accidents.

“The findings suggest that unvaccinated adults need to be careful indoors with other people and outside with surrounding traffic,” the report noted.

The study examined the encrypted government-held records of more than 11 million adults, 16 per cent of whom had not received the COVID-19 vaccine.

According to the study, unvaccinated people were 72 per cent more likely than vaccinated people to be involved in a serious traffic accident in which at least one person was transported to the hospital.

It stated that the increased risk of a car crash posed by unvaccinated drivers outweighs the safety gains from modern automobile engineering advances and endangers other road users.

The study affirmed that people who reject public health recommendations might also disregard fundamental rules of road safety while emphasising that skipping a COVID-19 vaccine does not automatically guarantee that someone will be involved in a car crash.

The research authors also suggested that primary care doctors consider counselling unvaccinated patients on traffic safety and that insurance companies may base changes to insurance policies on vaccination data.
