1) If you have a protective vaccine against a disease, one thing you would expect falling is CFR value. So, let's check some of the leading countries on vaccination.
2) Although there are some minor changes, most countries kept their CFR value on the same axis. Since UK's CFR differentiates among others, we should have a closer look.
3) When we check the UK's testing numbers, it isn't hard to notice the increase lately. If you test more people, you'll end up with more asymptomatic cases, not more deaths. You were testing dying people anyway. Therefore, we can assume extra testing is just for healthy people.
4) and when you practice your tests mostly on unvaccinated citizens, then CFR for those decreases faster than vaccinated people and one might claim that "being vaccinated is 8-9 times more dangerous".
4) We can't say that being vaccinated is more dangerous or not yet but we can genuinely say it's not helping, if not hurting.

Let's look at a small country from Asia, which name is Bhutan. Because of its small population, Bhutan had a chance to vaccinated almost the entire susceptible adult population in about a couple of weeks, like first-world countries have always dreamt of.
Let's check out the result. As you can see from the graph below, covid cases have surged suddenly and reached to the highest point since the start of the pandemic.
There are dozens of more countries, which ended up like Bhutan. The vaccination program eliminates old variants and therefore the immunity against them. Now societies are becoming more vulnerable than before. Specially vaccinated people. Time will prove again.

In this graph, you'll see the countries from all around the world with the highest vaccination rate in the world.
On the other hand, in this graph we see covid numbers for these countries. As you can see each country is following its own individual curve before mass vaccination on A section.
However, after mass vaccination their curve starts moving (B section) on same direction, at same time, at similar rate. Now they aren't on their seasonality lines. I suspect, mass vaccination policies are creating pandemic over again for everybody.
