Single dose of COVID-19 vaccine can reduce virus transmission by half: Study

A study by Public Health England on Wednesday showed that a single dose of COVID-19 vaccine can reduce the virus transmission by half. The study included over 57,000 contacts from 24,000 households in which there was a lab-confirmed case of coronavirus after vaccination, compared with nearly 1 million contacts of unvaccinated cases.

Though the study is yet to be fully peer-reviewed, during the research, it was found that those who became infected three weeks after receiving a single dose of either Pfizer-BioNTech or Astra Zeneca-Oxford vaccines were between 38% and 49% less likely to pass COVID-19 on to people living in their homes, in comparison with those who were not vaccinated.

The research also showed that a shot also stopped a person from developing symptomatic infection to begin with, reducing the risk of contracting the virus by 60% to 65% from four weeks after one dose of either of the vaccine. Protection was seen from about 14 days after vaccination, with similar levels regardless of a persons age or contacts.

It further reinforces that vaccines are the best way out of this pandemic as they protect you and they may prevent you from unknowingly infecting someone in your household. Hancock also urged everybody to get vaccinated as soon as possible.
