Covid Vaccine Study: The most effective weapon against the corona virus is the vaccine and now a new research has also confirmed this. Even a single dose of corona vaccine is capable of preventing death due to it to a great extent. According to research by the Indian Council of Medical Research- National Institute of Epidemiology (ICMR-NIE), a single dose of corona vaccine is 82 percent effective in preventing death due to corona virus, while it is 95 percent effective when both doses of the vaccine are taken. . This study of the effectiveness of corona vaccine in preventing deaths due to corona virus has been done in the High Risk Group of Tamil Nadu. Its report was published on 21 June in the Indian Journal of Medical Research.
Study on Tamil Policemen
The Tamil Nadu Police Department was keeping on record the deaths and vaccination doses (no dose, one dose and two doses) of its policemen during the second wave. Apart from this, he also kept a record of the date of hospitalization and vaccination. Talking to The Indian Express, Dr Manoj Murhekar, Director, ICMR-NIE, said that this data was used to study the deaths of vaccinated policemen and non-vaccinated policemen due to corona.

Study shows effective efficacy of vaccine – ICMR
Mortality risk associated with corona vaccination was calculated by doing a comparative study of deaths of people who were vaccinated and those who were not vaccinated. According to the calculation, 1.17 people died per 1000 policemen who did not take any dose of vaccine, while this figure is 0.21 for people who got one dose of vaccine and 0.06 for people who got both doses. According to Dr Murhekar, the results of the study are rational and it shows the effective efficacy of the vaccine.
