Vaccinated people are far less likely to get Covid-19 with symptoms. Vaccinated people are even more unlikely to get serious Covid-19, to be admitted to hospital, or to die from it – and there is growing evidence that vaccinated people are less likely to pass the virus to others.

The first dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech, Oxford/AstraZeneca and Moderna vaccine offer good levels of protection, but to get maximum protection everyone needs to get a second dose.

Recent analysis by Public Health England (PHE) shows that COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective against hospitalisation from the Delta (B.1.61.2) variant. The analysis suggests the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is 96% effective and the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine is 92% effective against hospitalisation after both doses.
