During this study, more than 57000 people from 24000 households were contacted, where there was at least one patient of laboratory confirmed COVID-19 (COVID-19).
Study on COVID Vaccine: According to a new study by Public Health England (PHE), it has been found that a single dose of Oxford / AstraZeneca or Pfizer / Bioentec Vaccine (Vaccine) also reduces the infection rate of COVID-19. People under the vaccination program currently run by the National Health Service (NHS), who were infected within three weeks of getting a vaccine, were less likely to be infected by 38 to 49 percent of those who did not take the vaccine. .
PHE also found that protection from COVID-19 was observed 14 days after vaccination. At the same time, age and contacts did not show any effect on this protection (Benefits of Vaccine). Britain’s Health Minister Matt Hancock said, “A new study shows that a single dose of the vaccine reduces the risk of domestic transmission by up to 50 percent.” This proves again that the vaccine protects you and those around you. When you get a call to get the vaccine, get the vaccine done.
How did the study happen?
These new studies, which came out on Wednesday, are yet to be fully reviewed by the experts. During this study, more than 57000 people from 24000 households were contacted, where there was at least one patient of laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 (COVID-19), who had been given a dose of vaccine, compared to these people About 10 lakh people who did not get the vaccine done. A person who has been infected with a vaccine at home after two to 14 days of contact with a corona virus infection is defined as a secondary case.
Reduce the risk of becoming infected
Most of the people involved in the study were under 60 years of age. In earlier studies, it was found that the risk of getting infected (Transmission Rate of Coronavirus After Vaccine) by four weeks after taking a single dose of either of the two vaccines is reduced by 60–65 percent. Dr. Mary Ramsay, Head of Immunization at PHE, says, ‘Vaccines are important in helping us return to our normal lives. Vaccines not only reduce the severity of the disease, but also prevent thousands of deaths daily. We are now seeing that he is also helpful in reducing the risk of spreading COVID-19 among others.
