How well are the current #Covid vaccines performing?

In all fairness, we can say they are offering high protection against severe disease & deaths; considerable protection against the symptomatic disease; but only modest protection ag. infections/transmission of the disease 1/
To put it another way, the vaccines are contributing little to our fight against the frequent surges of the #SARSCoV2 virus.

This leads to one pertinent question:

What ought to be the prime objective of the vaccination particularly amid an intense pandemic? 2/
To resist the ongoing outbreak or avoid hospitalizations and deaths?

A four-fold reduction in the hospitalisation & death rates is not much use if we just allow infections to reach four-fold the previous peak. 3/

A chemical engineer from Andhra Pradesh became viral on social media by talking against vaccines. He now appeared in mainstream media channels and quoted that every family will have one death in the third corona wave.
#Vaccine #misinformation
Thread 👇 (1/n)
He has made multiple misleading claims on Vaccines which may raise #vaccinehesistancy among the public. let's see the facts (2/n)
#AndhraPradesh #coronavirus #CovidVaccine
He claims that Vaccine #efficacy was reduced to 60 % against delta variant (which is first found in India). He also says that out of 100, only 60 people are safe, and the remaining 40 people are will surely get coronavirus which he termed as vaccine are not safe. (3/n)

1/ Q: What is going on with the results from the United States AstraZeneca trial?

A: Despite a *strange* communication week, the new trial results show that the #Oxford/#Astrazeneca is safe & effective. GOOD NEWS!
2/ TLDR: The first results this week were based on data collected in the U.S. through a pre-specified end date for interim analysis of Feb 17th. They continued to collect data beyond that date & have now released updated results..spoiler alert..they are very similar (76% vs 79%). Efficacy Table from Dr. Eri...
3/ On March 22nd, @AstraZeneca reported results (by press release) but received push-back on March 23rd from the U.S. Data Safety & Monitoring Board who claimed the press release efficacy was not based on full data. astrazeneca.com/media-centre/p…

Noting that, just like the #AppsLibrary, #DTAC *still* doesn't have a required section on clinical #efficacy - and that #impacts are much more than just (avoiding) #risks - alongside focusing on the #algorithms and #data, have you considered asking a few more basic questions... Image
...such as:

1) Will the proposed intervention have a direct impact on health, mental health and/or wellbeing?

If so, what specifically is the intended impact and how will it be measured? If not, why are you doing it?

2) Will the proposed intervention interact with or have...
...any impacts on social, economic and/or environmental factors that would 'indirectly' affect health?

If so, what are they and how will they be measured - and, if necessary, mitigated? If not, provide evidence of ALL of the potential impacts you have actually considered...

1/ Boris Johnson, the UK prime minister, said: “This is a local German decision and the EMA will, as I understand it, will be approving it for general use
2/ and I think that’s a very sensible of the EMA, because that is the vaccine our own MHRA has said produces an immune response in all age groups, as a good vaccine, so I’m confident about it.”
