Officials from the English Public Health Agency announced Monday that receiving a single dose of the Pfizer-Biontech anti-Covid-19 vaccine reduced the chances of contracting the virus among health sector workers by 70%.
And those responsible for those percentages announced, relying on British data.
The data analyzed by the agency showed that a single dose of the vaccine provided high levels of protection against infection and associated diseases, which would lead to a 75% reduction in deaths and cases requiring hospitalization among the elderly who received the vaccine.
“We’re seeing a really powerful effect in reducing any infection, whether asymptomatic or asymptomatic,” Susan Hopkins, the agency’s strategic response director, said in a media briefing.
Marie Ramsay, head of optimization at the agency, described the data as “strong evidence that the Pfizer vaccine prevents infection and protects cases from death.” “These preliminary results should be very encouraging,” she said.
The data comes amid the sector’s conduct of a study of cases of recipients of the first dose of the vaccine, whether among health sector workers or elderly people over 80 years old. The sector said in a statement that the preliminary results show that receiving the second dose of the elderly will increase their protection against Virus By 85%.
The statement confirmed that the Pfizer vaccine wipes out recipients of mutated strains of the virus and led to the largest decrease in deaths since mid-January.
