Vaccination with two doses after 14 days reduces the risk of hospitalization and death from covid-19 in people over 50 by 90 percent.
This is the result of an extensive study carried out in France, which was reported by AFP. “This means that vaccinated people are nine times less likely to be hospitalized or die on covid-19 than unvaccinated people,” said Professor Mahmoud Zureik, head of the Epi-Phare epidemiological group that conducted the study, according to the agency.Read also BBC: Like fake science, ivermectin, the “miracle” drug on Covid-19, was created
Experts analyzed data on 22 million French people over the age of 50. Of these, 11 million were fully vaccinated. Both groups followed from December 27, 2020, when the vaccination campaign began in France, until July 20.
The risk of hospitalization fell by more than 90 percent 14 days after the second dose, the study said. The risk of death related to covid-19 has also decreased. Protection against the development of a severe course of the disease remained roughly as high as five months after vaccination.
At the time of the study, age groups were vaccinated with Pfizer / BioNTech, Moderna and AstraZeneca vaccines. The Johnson & Johnson (J&J) preparation received only a small number of people and was therefore not included in the research.Read also They found traces of radioactivity from the Chernobyl explosion in mushrooms in Germany
The study also looked at the protection that vaccination provides against the delta mutation. She found that the risk of hospitalization after vaccination was reduced by 92 percent among people aged 50 to 74 years and by 84 percent in the 75+ age group.
According to the authors, these are preliminary conclusions, as they are based only on data collected this May. It still needs to be confirmed on a larger amount of data.
