You need to take age and the amount of people vaccinated into consideration. Anti-Vaxxers on social media are trying to say the vaccines don't work, or worst still, may even be a leading cause of death.

This can mean that still a lot of old people getting hospitalised, even if they  have been vaccinated, but the vaccines would have held back many more serious infections. With so many old people vaccinated (90%), they can outnumber the unvaxxed in hospitals, but this never happens in Western states where vaccination rates are lower. Also, most infections would have been fairly mild, and according to the stats, vaccine efficacy is still high. 

In sub-Sahara Africa vaccination rates are low and so are covid deaths, but their average age is under 40 years old, and in some parts, the average age is 18 years old. Contrarians are looking at the data at face value and using this in their propaganda.
