Coronavirus vaccines reduce hospital admissions by about 84%. This show data from the world’s first study in real conditions for hospital admission after vaccination.
The data published by the UK early this morning are the first to calculate the percentage of hospitalized since the beginning of the immunization campaign against the coronavirus.
The data are from Scotland. The health was analyzed status of 5.4 million people between December 8 and February 15. Of these, more than 1.1 million received a single dose of the Pfizer / BioNTech or Oxford / AstraZeneca vaccine. Scientists have found that those who received the vaccine was significant less likely to be admitted to hospital compared to those who were not immunized.
It is generally reported 84% drop in hospital admissions with coronavirus four weeks after vaccination.
Britain decided to put the first dose of vaccines as many people as possible, delaying the second dose. Currently, relatively few people have received both doses on the Island.
But new data reveal that one dose of the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine is being reduced admitted to hospital by 85% four weeks after the first dose, and the AstraZeneca vaccine reduces hospitalizations by 94%.
The researchers also measured the effect of the vaccine each week after the first dose. They found that the vaccine provides the greatest effectiveness in the fourth week after its placement. The effectiveness is strongest in those aged between 18 and 64 years.
In people over the age of 80, the vaccine reduced hospitalization by 81% after the fourth week.
This is the first study of the effects of vaccination and the need for hospitalization in one country, scientists note.
