Single vaccine jab cuts deaths, hospitalizations - PHE

The Public Health England (PHE) submitted on Monday a study showing a single shot of the Pfizer Inc./BioNTech SE and Oxford-AstraZeneca plc coronavirus vaccine cut the need for hospitalizations by 80% in the elderly.

The organization stated there is also evidence that one jab of Pfizer's vaccine reduces COVID-19 deaths by over 80%.

"This adds to growing evidence showing that the vaccines are working to reduce infections and save lives," head of PHE Dr. Mary Ramsay said. However, she noted that "it is important to remember that protection is not complete and we don’t yet know how much these vaccines will reduce the risk of you passing COVID-19 onto others."
