Covid vaccines - 'spectacular' impact on serious illness - BBC

As there are several vaccination threads I thought this deserved a thread of its own. It works!

The first results of the UK vaccination programme suggests it is having a "spectacular" impact on preventing serious illness.

Research led by Public Health Scotland found in the fourth week after the first dose, hospitalisations were reduced by 85% and 94% for the Pfizer and AstraZeneca jabs respectively.

It is the first sign of the real world impact of vaccination in the UK.

Figures for England are expected to be released later.

Among the over 80s, there was an overall 81% reduction in the numbers admitted to hospital.

The researchers did not look at the impact on transmission - whether people who were vaccinated passed it on - or whether immunity waned over time.

The preliminary data from the EAVE II project covers 1.14 million vaccinations given in Scotland between 8 December and 15 February.

The study looked at the numbers being admitted to hospital with Covid among this population and compared it to those admitted who were not vaccinated.

Lead researcher Prof Aziz Sheikh said the results were "very, very" impressive and both vaccines were working "spectacularly".

"These results are very encouraging and have given us great reasons to be optimistic for the future."

Trials of both vaccines had suggested they would have a significant impact at preventing hospitalisations.

But for the Pfizer vaccine studies, that had involved a second dose being given after three weeks.

The UK has adopted a policy of delaying the second jab of both vaccines by three months, which had led some to question whether the approach would give sufficient immunity.

The trials of the AstraZeneca looked at a longer dosing interval so there was more confidence about that vaccine.

Dr Josie Murray, of Public Health Scotland, said the findings were "brilliant news" and suggested the vaccine programme was working.

Good news! I was given the Pfizer Jab last Wednesday and was told "if you haven't heard anything by the third week, to contact the GP's surgery.

That’ll only be because the Gates Chip (injected with the vaccine) has failed to self activate. The GP will remotely activate it and you’ll be hearing everything*.

So it works exactly like the trials said it would?
 
When they say numbers going to hospital has dropped, would lockdown be a reason why? Surely that contributes and to have people crediting the vaccine for the low hospital admissions I think is like the cockeral taking credit for the sunshine.

it's actually cos we are running out of people in the at risk groups

Spectacular Impact On Serious Illness screams the headline.

You’d imagine that the number of covid cases becoming seriously ill in those who have and those who haven't been vaccinated might be a reasonable comparator.

Lock down helps control the spread and thus, the number of cases but it makes no difference whatsoever to the progress of the disease from just caught to seriously ill (and likely to die) in a person once the disease has been contracted.

Do you work for the BBC?

Presumably the statistics have been worked out to take account of that. I read the story as of people who caught COVID-19, far fewer had serious symptoms requiring hospital treatment.

The lockdown is meant to reduce transmission, but if you get it you can get either mildly or gravely ill. The vaccine reduces the chances of you becoming gravely ill.

Doesn't the chip turn us all into lizard people who will live under rocks rather than in housing so the Illuminati can save money to spend on George Soros?
 
Does this mean the EU will start vaccinating their over-65s with AZ?

No. Thought not.

I'm not moving to Hull for anyone.
 
All UK restrictions lifted by 21st June - hopefully.

If Boris had any sense, he'd be sending any excess vaccine to various island destinations, like Crete, Malta, The Azores, etc. so they would be:

a) safe to visit, 'cos their limited and isolated population could all be vaccinated so they'd be,
b) bloody grateful to the UK and
c) thus accept UK tourists with open arms (especially if the Huns and Frogs were still poxed and thus not welcome) so
d) UK tourists get their holibobs and
e) the inhabitants of the islands are all happy 'cos their economy gets going again. .

Bonus diplomatic kudos to the UK? Too sensible? If anyone from HMG is reading this, something to consider?

Edit, population size:

Crete 635,000
Malta 440,000
The Azores 245,000
Faroe Islands 48,000
Iceland 355,000
Ibiza 148,000

So most of them are a day or two's worth of UK vaccines. Those 6 are less than a weeks worth in total.

The study looked at the numbers being admitted to hospital with Covid among this population and compared it to those admitted who were not vaccinated.

So, it appears they have taken the effects of lockdown out of the equation by comparing who ends up in hospital and whether or not they had been vaccinated. If the people who are ending up in hospital are mainly those who haven't been vaccinated, that's a pretty good clue that the vaccine is working.

It's probably safe to assume that they know enough to adjust for age and other factors.

I hope so, then my legs can grow back.
