Researchers examined nearly 100,000 samples from English study participants and determined that the risk of infection is three times lower in fully vaccinated individuals than in unvaccinated individuals. The risk of infection is also lower.

People fully vaccinated against Covid-19 have a significantly lower risk of contracting the coronavirus than unvaccinated people, according to a British study. According to the study published Wednesday, the likelihood of a vaccinated person testing positive for the coronavirus is one-third compared with unvaccinated people. A corona-infected person with full vaccine protection was also less likely to infect others, according to the study.

Study with 100,000 participants
The researchers from Imperial College London examined a total of almost 100,000 samples from English study participants between the end of June and mid-July. According to their analysis, one in 160 subjects became infected with the coronavirus during the study period. The so-called prevalence rate – the frequency of illness – was 1.21 percent among the unvaccinated and 0.4 percent among the fully vaccinated.

Study leader Paul Elliott said the study results confirm previous data that “both doses of a vaccine protect well against infection.” At the same time, he said, it is clear that even after vaccination, there is still a risk of becoming infected with coronavirus. “No vaccine is 100 percent effective, and we know that some dually vaccinated people can still get sick from the virus,” he stressed.

England abolished corona rules
Referring to the sweeping relaxation of corona measures in England, he urged people to continue to be cautious in their interactions. Despite warnings from scientists, the British government on July 19 had lifted nearly all corona restrictions in place in England, including requiring masks in certain indoor spaces.

Cases fall since relaxations
According to the U.K. Department of Health, the number of new Corona infections has been declining since the relaxations began. This surprised experts and government officials alike. Before the controversial relaxations, a significant increase in Corona cases had been expected.
