Studies show Covid-19 vaccines offer significant protection against the Delta coronavirus variant, U.K. officials say, a hopeful sign as the strain first identified in India spreads globally

The findings are the latest indicating that vaccines are able to protect people against new variants, despite early concerns that the variants might be able to elude them.

Public health officials in the U.K. say they are increasingly confident that vaccines offer significant protection againstthe Delta variant of coronavirus, a hopeful sign as the highly transmissible strain spreads across the world.Separate studies from researchers in England and Scotland published Monday found that while protection against infection was somewhat diminished against Delta compared with more established variants, two doses of vaccine offered considerable protection against severe illness and hospitalization.

The findings are the latest indicating that Covid-19 vaccines are able to protect people against new variants, despite early concerns that the variants might be able to elude them.“Vaccine effectiveness against Delta is still very, very substantial,” said Aziz Sheikh, director of the University of Edinburgh’s Usher Institute of medicine and the lead author of one the two analyses.

An analysis of more than 14,000 Delta cases by England’s public health agency found a double dose of the shot developed by Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech SE reduces the risk of hospitalization after infection with Delta by 96%. Two doses of the vaccine developed by the University of Oxford and AstraZeneca reduces the risk by 92%, Public Health England said.

reading WSJ for its vi′ro·log′i·cal opinions Then stick to your reopening schedule you goods Az efficacy 90%? 60% is the right number Nearly all of the people in the hospital currently are those who did not get the vaccine. We are at the point where most people who have not gotten the vaccine are Republicans. I hope you can see where this is going. Darwin was right.

Just a shame the GQP will have so many of their voters practicing their own form of voter suppression. A rather permanent suppression. In my area there are plenty, not bad people, just fearful. And full of Fox Pundits BS. This is not factual. The vaccine offers little protection against the variant known as Delta. Try doing some research before writing an article like this next time.
