That raw statistic may be true (it is not in the public domain), but any implication that it means the unvaccinated are adding considerable pressure to health service resources doesn’t withstand scrutiny since the numbers involved here are miniscule.
According to the latest data published by the UKHSA, a minority of Covid hospital admissions in the month ending December 12th – 42.9% – were unvaccinated. According to the latest data from ICNARC, a minority of Covid ICU admissions in October – 46.7% – and a minority in the two-week period November 1st to 14th – 47.5% – were unvaccinated. ICNARC has not published any more recent data than that on the ratio of unvaccinated to vaccinated Covid patients in ICU. If it has changed dramatically since then, that data is not in the public domain.
However, the number of vaccinated and unvaccinated in the population as a whole should be considered. There are significantly less than 42% unvaccinated in the country, but they still make up that figure of hospitalisation. Still, it's still noted that vaccinated are still getting Covid and being hospitalised and it's still unclear that the NHS is being overwhelmed.
