Even four weeks after the first dose, vaccines used in the UK drastically reduce the chances of being admitted to hospital.

Researchers at several Scottish universities have studied the effects of vaccinating Pfizer and AstraZeneca. They looked at how many were hospitalized for the coronavirus among those who had not yet received the vaccine, compared with those who were already past their first vaccination.

Four weeks after the first dose, the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine reduced the chances of a person being vaccinated being hospitalized due to coronavirus symptoms by 85 percent. And Oxford-based AstraZeneca scored 94 percent.

In the group of people over the age of eighty, who are considered to be at high risk for the virus, the combined data for the two vaccines show an 81 per cent reduction in the chance of being hospitalized after the first dose.

Nicola Sturgeon, Scotland’s first minister, called the results of the research extremely outstanding.

“I hope so we can all be a little more optimistic about the future.”
