This meant the unvaccinated were 10.1 times more likely to be hospitalized compared to vaccinated.

No it doesn’t. Because the percentage of Child vaccinations greatly lag that of the adults. Therefore, there are simply less vaccinated youngsters.

It is too early to conclude any real benefit. As they keep ignoring side effects.

You are not contradicting what is written in the article, only give an explanation why this happens, which

Good time to remind people that in Japan, there are zero Covid-19 deaths among those below 20 years of age, after over 210,000 confirmed infections (actual infection number is expected to be much higher).
