[Updated] Over half (52.7%; 29/55) of Rhode Island’s November, 2021 COVID-19 deaths were among the fully vaccinated; Naturally acquired immunity reduced that risk by 20-fold (per 100,000)

Bottom line:

There was 1/14th the rate of hospitalization and 1/20th the rate of death, comparing those with natural immunity to covid-19, regardless of vaccination status, to those fully vaccinated
