A recent study revealed that Moderna’s vaccine is more effective against the delta variant of the Corona virus than the Pfizer and Johnson vaccines, adding that the Corona virus vaccine from Moderna is 95% effective in preventing hospitalization with corona among adults aged 18 years or older, according to a report on the website. “thehealthsite“.
Immunity to Corona from Moderna Vaccine
“This real-world data shows that vaccines remain highly effective in reducing rates of hospitalizations and emergency department visits related to corona, even in the presence of the new delta variant,” said researcher Shaun Granis of Indiana University in the United States. To reduce critical illnesses and ease the burden on our healthcare system.”
The team also found that Pfizer was 80% effective in preventing hospitalizations among adults 18 and older, and Johnson was 60% effective, and for the study, the team analyzed more than 32,000 medical encounters from nine states during June, July and August 2021. , when the delta variant became the dominant strain.
The results showed that individuals unvaccinated with corona vaccines are 5-7 times more likely to need emergency department care or hospitalization, similar to the overall efficacy before the delta variable.
The study also found that the vaccine’s efficacy is lower for people aged 75 and over, which has not been shown in previous research, and the researchers noted that this may be due to a combination of factors, including the passage of time since they were vaccinated.
