A single dose of the coronavirus vaccine reduces the spread of the virus by 50%, says a new study conducted by an institute in England.
This was revealed after a study by Public Health England. It found that those who received the first dose of the Pfizer or AstraZeneca vaccine had a 38 to 49 percent lower rate of transmission than those without the vaccine.
Matt Hancock, the UK’s health secretary, said the study also found protection against cod 14 days after vaccination. “Everyone who is eligible to be vaccinated should get vaccinated as soon as possible,” he said.
The study included 57,000 people from 24,000 households who had tested positive for corona in their laboratory reports and had been vaccinated, compared to about one million people who had not been vaccinated. Most of the people in the study were under 60 years of age.
“Vaccination is very important to us to get back to normal life,” says Dr Marie Ramsay, Head of Immunization at Public Health England. The vaccine not only reduces the severity of the disease but also protects against the hundreds of deaths that occur daily. And we can see that the chances of the corona spreading due to the vaccine are also decreasing.
