COVID-19: Double-jabbed are half as likely to be infected with coronavirus, study finds
A study of more than 98,000 people shows that coronavirus vaccines offer good protection against infection, as well as the previously known strength against severe disease and death.

The React trial was based on more than 98,000 randomly-selected people in England and found that if a double-jabbed person came into contact with a person who had COVID-19, only one in 25 (3.84%) would catch the virus.And, even then, their case would generally be milder than it would have been if they had not been vaccinated.
Steven Riley, professor of infectious disease dynamics at Imperial College London, said the study showed that every person who gets vaccinated is"taking a decent chunk of potential transmission out of what may or may not happen in September". headtopics.com
He added:"There has been a drop, a plateau now, and I think it is challenging to make any kind of prediction over the summer months.Advertisement"There is uncertainty around what might happen in September when schools return and (there is) increased indoor mixing."
The percentage of those who tested positive for COVID-19 was 0.4% among those who were double-jabbed compared to 1.21% among those unvaccinated - a three-fold difference. Read more: Sky News »

Vaccinated Vs Unvaccinated 😍. So me my daughter must be in other half then. Just got over Covid which was horrendous and double jabbed What’s the point in having injection papers then? Also it says after making adjustments they came up with this, what adjustments were made and which vaccine are they talking about?
Shitty journalism again. Who cares how many are infected! The big deal is how many of those are sick enough to land in hospital. Not very many at all. 🤣🤣 Study sponsor: Big Pharma 😕 Vax with protection rate of less than 75% is abandoned as useless. So basically. It's fking useless... Do you see it? Nah. Don’t care.

Qld Covid-19 update: 19 new cases recorded as Ekka public holiday rescheduled – videoQueensland records 19 new cases of Covid-19, making it the state's biggest outbreak since the first wave last year thanks
So double jabbed 3.85% chance of injection in jabbed 7.70% chance of infection? Makes sense why the world has reacted like this. So that means no vax pass Hoho 😆👈 they are the spreaders at the moment Tell that 2 Israel, Singapore, Iceland, Gibraltar etc. Cherry picking studys 2 suit ur masters narrative is not journalism. Do better. We're not as stupid as you think we are.
It should be treat like the seasonal flu. The only difference is symptoms start showing after 10 days or so, unlike the usual yearly flu that takes about less than 2 days, where people stay at home and rest so it spreads less. Not enough people getting their seasonal flu shots eh BBCNews 10DowningStreet UKSupremeCourt BorisJohnson RishiSunak DominicRaab So even after being double jabbed, it is only 50% likely to be infected with Covid & spread infection, and on the same note, do the vaccines only work on 50% of the jabbed who go on to be infected?
Based on how many months of study and on what type of virus? Since studies typically takes 5 years and also the virus mutates rendering each study done on that year, kinda useless. COVID-19 vaccines profits in 2021 Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, AstraZeneca thanks More importantly the symptoms are supposed less severe after the jabs.
