Study Confirmed that, The Second dose of the Vaccine has made the recipient 92% prone to any form of Infection in comparison to the people who are not vaccinated.
The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine has proven 94% effective in a study involving 1.2 million people in Israel, the first peer-reviewed real world research confirming the power of mass immunization campaigns to bring the pandemic to a close.
A Paper published in the New England Journal of Medicine on Wednesday, showed the positive and strong affect against infection, a vital prevention in the ongoing transmissions
The experiment was done from December 20th 2020 to February 1, 2021 — In this time the new variant was first identified in Britain and it was widely spread in Israel and made the vaccine’s discovery and performance more important.
A approx of 1.2 million people were divided into equal groups of vaccinated and unvaccinated.
Each Person who was the participant of vaccination was compared to an individual who was not vaccinated in the same age group, sex, region, medical history and other characteristics.
The lead author and head of epidemiology and research at the Clalit Research Institute, Noam Barda, told AFP that the Comparison process was very enthusiastic and powerful.
For Example An Elder American man from particular set of age group and medical history will be compared with another elder man living in neighborhood with similar set of age group and medical history, means both the people should match eachother’s profile.
The readings were taken after 14-20 days from the first of the first dose of two doses by the Researchers and from the second dose the result was recorded after 7-10 days.
The Researchers found that the efficiacncy of the Vaccine was about 57% after the period of 14-20 days from the first dose but after the 2nd dose the efficiency boosted to a almost 94% in the next 7 days and in 3rd phase of Clinical trial it reached nearly 95%.
The Research also found that the Recipient of the 2nd dose of the vaccine showed 92% prevention against anh type of Infection in comparison to unvaccinated people.
While the Research was found to be very enthusiastic and promising, the Expert Researchers from outside asked for more convincing Evidence for the Research.
Because the people who were vaccinated in the research were not tested regularly in a fix time period instead they were getting tested by their will.
The Researchers tried to make corrections in this with different statistically but it brought no such changes and the results are still similar and imperfect
The Biostatistician at the University of Florida, Natalie Dean said that “Unless you are testing everyone all the time, this will miss some infections.” she also said that she was sure that there can be a strong preventive Affect but “nailing down this number more precisely will require specialized study designs with frequent testing.”
Ghana became the first country in world to receive COVAX vaccines.
The West African nation of 30 million has noted about 81,245 cases of COVID-19 since the starting of the Pandemic and about 584 deaths were recorded, according to figures from Ghana’s Health Services on Tuesday.
