COVID Vaccine One Dose Reduce Infection Risk: The second wave of Coronavirus Pandemic has troubled the world once again. Countries around the world are accelerating vaccination efforts to prevent the virus. At the same time, people are being appealed to get vaccine as soon as possible so that the risk of the virus can be reduced. Now scientists from the University of Oxford have told that to what extent the risk decreases after the first dose of the vaccine. Statistics have been released regarding this.
Scientists have released additional data. These data confirm that the risk of infection is significantly reduced only after taking the first dose of Covid-19 Vaccine, developed by both Pfizer-BioNotech and AstraZeneca companies. In their research published on Friday, the researchers said that there is no significant difference in the vaccine regarding its ability to reduce the risk of corona virus infection. This study has not yet been published in any reputable review journal.
65 percent less risk
The study is based on an analysis of samples of nose and throat swabs of more than 3,70,000 people in England and Wales between December and April. Scientists say that three weeks after the first dose of either vaccine, Pfizer Biontech AstraZeneca Vaccine has reduced the risk of corona virus infection in people by 65 percent. At the same time, after taking the second dose, the danger is reduced significantly, as well as this vaccine is also effective against the new form of the virus, first identified in Britain.
Necessary preventive measures
Senior scientist at the University of Oxford, Coen Powells, said there are some instances where a person has developed an infection after being vaccinated and a limited number of infections have also spread to people who have been vaccinated. Powell said in a statement, “It is clear that people should follow protocol to reduce the risk of spreading the infection, put on masks and maintain a distance of two yards.”
