AsᴛʀᴀZᴇɴᴇᴄᴀ (AZ)

Disclaimer: I assembled this thread to help me grasp covid data. I’m not a virologist so there are probably errors. Please feel free to correct me. Accurate information is important.

AZ was trialed under different conditions–
1) two Standard Doses, 28 days apart (SD/SD trial)
2) a half-dose (Low Dose), then a Standard Dose (LD/SD trial)

Overall, there were…
• Zero COVID-19 hospital admissions in the groups getting the AZ vaccine.
• The unvaccinated group had ten hospital admissions: two of which were severe.
