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.
