After a few months in the market, Pfizer and Moderna vaccines have made it into tens of millions of arms in the United States. Each!!!! As a result, evidence is more widespread about their efficacy.
According to Gina Kolata for the New York Times:
The coronavirus vaccines made by Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech are proving highly effective. At both preventing symptomatic and asymptomatic infections under real-world conditions. As noted by federal health researchers reported on last week. Consistent with clinical trial data, a two-dose regimen prevented 90 percent of infections by two weeks after the second shot. One dose prevented 80 percent of infections by two weeks after vaccination.
The news arrives even as the nation rapidly broadens eligibility for vaccines. And the average number of daily shots continues to rise. The seven-day average of vaccines administered exceeds three million does daily. With regular increase from week to week. Reports the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Scientists have debated whether vaccinated people may still get asymptomatic infections. As well as transmit the virus to others. However, the new study by researchers at the CDC suggested that since infections were so rare, transmission was likely rare, too.
