The first dose of the vaccine reduces the virus transmission by about 2/3


Whether vaccinated people without getting sick can transmit the coronavirus or not remains a key unknown. If they can transmit it means everyone must be vaccinated for full protection. However, if the vaccine also stops the virus from spreading, then it would have a much greater impact on the pandemic because any indirectly vaccinated person will also protect other people said Mat Hancock.

Coronavirus Vaccinations for Children

Hancock mentioned the reduction of carry-over in an interview on Sky News when asked about the possibility of vaccinating children in the future.

Vaccinating children is important in trying to stop the spread of the disease, and we have early evidence of the effect of vaccination in stopping transmission. It seems that the first dose reduces the level of disease transmission by about two-thirdsbut we need more evidence for that, said the British Minister of Health.

The two-thirds figure he cited had previously appeared in a preliminary study on AstraZeneca’s effects on viral transmission, published in early February in The Lancet, but only one of the two vaccines currently in use in the UK.

Britain will come out of lockdown through vaccination

As part of the lockdown recovery plan announced by Boris Johnson on Monday, government agency Public Health England is expected to provide more complete data on the impact of vaccines on virus transmission.

Hancock also said vaccinations made hospital admissions for Covid-19 drop faster than it was during the declining first wave of the epidemic. This week, the number of patients in hospitals fell below the peak in the first wave for the first time since December. On Friday, there were less than 18,000 in hospitals. patients with Covid-19, by almost 3 thousand. less than the peak of the first wave.
