Covid vaccine reduces risk of serious illness by 80%

New data shows that a single jab of either the Oxford-AstraZeneca or the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid jab reduces the chance of needing hospital treatment by over 80%. Health Secretary Matt Hancock told a Downing Street press conference that "a single shot of either the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine or of the Pfizer vaccine works against severe infection among the over-70s with a more than 80% reduction in hospitalisations". He added that the data shows "the protection that you get from catching Covid 35 days after a first jab is even slightly better for the Oxford jab than for Pfizer, albeit both results are clearly very strong."

One dose Pfizer coronavirus vaccine wards off asymptomatic transmission

A single dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine reduces the risk of asymptomatic infections, helping to stem transmission, research suggests.The UK has approved three coronavirus jabs – Pfizer-BioNTech, AstraZeneca-University of Oxford and Moderna – after studies demonstrated they significantly ward off severe disease.With not everyone able to be immunised, or producing a strong immune response as a result of their vaccination, questions lingered as to whether the jabs prevented the infection itself.Asymptomatic infections are particularly important amid the pandemic, given these individuals do not know to isolate and may unwittingly transmit the coronavirus even when they speak.To learn more, medics from the Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CUH) swabbed the site's vaccinated and unvaccinated healthcare workers over two weeks.Results suggest the risk of an asymptomatic infection decreases by four times more than 12 days after a worker received the Pfizer-BioNTech jab.

High Number of Antibodies After Two Doses of Pfizer Vaccine [Video]

High Number of Antibodies After Two Doses of Pfizer Vaccine

New research suggests people of all ages who have had two jabs of the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine produce high numbers of antibodies. The Imperial College London and Ipsos Mori study, React-2, said data shows that 87.9% of people over the age of 80 tested positive for antibodies after two doses. That figure rose to 95.5% for those under 60 and 100% in those aged under 30. However, researchers warned there was not enough data to say how protected someone may be from the virus based on a positive antibody test result, and it did not mean they were immune.
