Data from two separate investigations published in the UK, one in England and another in Scotland, have shown COVID-19 vaccines are effective in cutting virus transmission and hospitalizations beginning from the first dose itself.

In a statement posted on social media, Matt Hancock, the secretary of state for Health and Social Care, welcomed the news as staggeringly uplifting for everyone.
“It shows that the vaccines work and it shows that vaccines save lives.” He wrote.
The data published additionally shows vaccinated individuals who do become infected are more averse to dying or be hospitalized.
Hospitalization and death from the infection is diminished by in excess of 75 percent in individuals who have gotten a dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, as per the analysis.
