Amidst massive geopolitical tensions, news regarding the covid efficiency comes out.
New study revealing covid vaccine efficiency for kids is out
It’s been just reported that Pfizer and BioNTech’s two-dose Covid vaccine provided very little protection for children aged 5 to 11 during the wave of omicron infection in New York, according to a study that has been published Monday.
“The New York State Department of Health found that the effectiveness of Pfizer’s vaccine against Covid infection plummeted from 68% to 12% for kids in that age group during the omicron surge from Dec. 13 through Jan 24. Protection against hospitalization dropped from 100% to 48% during the same period.”
The study has not yet undergone peer review which is the academic gold standard.
“Given rapid loss of protection against infections, these results highlight the continued importance of layered protections, including mask wearing, for children to prevent infection and transmission.”
This is what the public health officials wrote in the study.
