Your clear implication is that vaccinated people are dying more than unvaxed. In absolutes, from that date, that may be true. But you are absolutely putting out numbers without context. So, since 1st August:
131 vaxxed deaths
47 unvaxxed (one dose against delta is about 30% effective, it hardly counts as a vaccine course).
83% of over 16's are double vaccinated. over 16 is pretty much the lowest age for a death in Scotland, bar one or two cases. 47 deaths belong to 17% of the population. Those are far worse odds than the 131 deaths from 83% of the population.
I've stated months back, that as the vaccine roll-out progresses, and as scientists have also clearly said, the deaths will predominantly come from the vaccinated group (especially in a country where there is high vaccination rates). Also, given Delta has a hit on efficacy, 15% of fully vaxxed persons are still susceptible to Covid. Of those, some will die. And those are the numbers you are posting.
It would be better statistical analysis to look at a state (try the US) with a very low vaccination rate and look at those deaths. John Hopkins reports this:
In the 10 states with the lowest vaccination rates, there is an average of about 34 deaths per 1 million residents, and in states with the highest, the average is six deaths per 1 million, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
But, I'd like to point out, even in those states with higher deaths, the vaccines are working. 34 deaths per million isn't staggeringly bad.
