The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has come under fire for failing to publish large segments of data related to COVID-19.  The data includes statistics on hospitalizations and the efficacy of booster shots. The importance of the data cannot be overstated because it contains information broken down by age, race, sex, vaccination and economic status. For example, the data would show who was at the greatest risk of hospitalization, who was more likely to get severe disease, and how well booster shots were working for various populations.

The New York Times broke the story.
