AstraZeneca and Pfizer vaccines are “highly effective” against the Delta variant – Science & Health

An Oxford University study also points out that these vaccines provide “high protection” against hospitalization of patients infected with the Indian-associated variant.

Vaccines produced by AstraZeneca and Pfizer/BioNTech are effective against the Delta variant and provide “high protection” against hospitalization of patients infected with the variant associated with India.

The Oxford University Study, published in the scientific journal Cell, investigated the ability of antibodies in the blood of vaccinated individuals, with two doses of these vaccines, to neutralize the highly contagious variant whose prevalence has increased in Portugal and, especially, in Lisbon and Vale do Tejo, where it is already dominant.

“There is no evidence of widespread transmission, suggesting that current vaccination confers protection against the B.1,617 strains,” the study points out, referring to the variants now known as Delta and Kappa.
