You are probably aware of the fact that the covid 19 vaccines have been surrounded by massive controversies so far due to their potential side effects, which are more severe for some people.
As a result, more and more individuals want to know which one of the vaccines is the safest and the one with the lowest infection rate.
Another important issue worth mentioning is the fact that unvaccinated people account for most new cases of Covid 19 in the US. On the other hand, a small proportion of cases are in vaccinated people as well – just in case you did not know, these are called breakthrough infections.
LiveScience posted a piece around the subject not too long ago.
Covid vaccine with the lowest rate of breakthrough infections
It’s been revealed that “The Johnson & Johnson vaccine does seem to have higher rates of breakthrough infection than the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, but that was expected based on the results of clinical trials,” the online publication mentioned above says.
More than that, some very early hints are showing a “slightly lower rate of breakthrough infections with the Moderna vaccine than with the Pfizer vaccine, but that early finding is based on data on a few million people from only two locations and thus may not represent the overall picture in the country.”
The same online publication notes that no vaccine is 100% effective, and this is the reason for which breakthrough infections have been expected from the start of the vaccine rollout.
