Covid-19: Single dose of Astrazeneca saves 80 percent (Vaccines saved at least 10 thousand lives in the UK)

In the United Kingdom, the UK Public Health Center (PHE) updated the data of two corona virus vaccines applied in the country and shared the effects.

Sharing the data of AstraZeneca / Oxford and BioNTech / Pfizer vaccines used in the country, PHE reported that both vaccines provide high protection against the virus.

Stating that a single dose of AstraZeneca / Oxford vaccine provides 80 percent protection, PHE stated that two doses of BioNTech vaccine provide 97 percent protection.


UK Public Health Center (PHE) stated that they estimate that Covid-19 vaccines have saved at least 10 thousand lives since they were introduced, while UK Health Minister Matt Hancock said that PHE findings made people know that the risk of “serious illness or hospitalization due to the virus decreased significantly after vaccination. He said it would allow them to breathe a sigh of relief.

It was underlined that if both vaccines were administered in a single dose, they were very effective in people aged 80 and over, and many of the restrictions were lifted with the vaccination of a large part of the country.

Due to the fact that there was no loss of life due to corona virus for two days last week, it was reported that the restrictions were completely lifted in the past period, while the AstraZeneca / Oxford vaccine was the most used vaccine with approximately 27 million doses in the country.
