Israeli study: Pfizer vaccine is 94 percent effective


In a new Israeli study with 1.2 million test subjects, the vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech shows good results.

A study of more than half a million fully vaccinated Israelis indicates that the corona vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech provides 94 percent protection against covid-19.

It informs Israel’s largest health provider on Sunday.

The health provider, Clalit, further states that its researchers have tested 600,000 people who have received two doses of the US-German vaccine as well as 600,000 people who have not been vaccinated.

“There was a 94 percent reduction in the number of cases of symptomatic infection and a 92 percent decrease in the number of cases of serious illness compared to 600,000 similar test subjects who were not vaccinated,” Clalit said in a statement.

The Israeli healthcare provider does not elaborate on what lies behind “similar” test subjects.

– Vaccine efficacy is maintained in all age groups, including people over the age of 70, Clalit adds.

As a result of Israel’s extensive vaccination program, 3.8 million people in the country have already received the first dose of vaccine, while 2.4 million people have also received the second dose.
