Vaccines highly effective against hospitalisation from Delta variant
New analysis by Public Health England shows for the first time that two doses of COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective against hospitalisation from the Delta variant.
It shows that after two doses:
· the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is 96% effective against hospitalisation
· the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine is 92% effective against hospitalisation
These rates are comparable with vaccine effectiveness against hospitalisation from the Alpha variant.
