The two doses of the vaccine Oxford/AstraZeneca are up to 89% effective against coronavirus, according to the Public Health England Institute. The conclusions of the scientists of this organism, known by its acronym in English, PHE, are based on analysis of data studied among the vaccinated population.

In a weekly surveillance report, the PHE confirms that the estimated efficacy of the AstraZeneca vaccine, created at the University of Oxford, is 89% compared to unvaccinated people. A figure close to 90% of the efficacy of the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine against coronavirus.

“This new data highlights the incredible impact that both doses of the Oxford / AstraZeneca vaccine can have, providing up to 89% protection,” said UK Vaccine Minister Nadhim Zahawi.

PHE assures that this analysis is the first on the efficacy of the two doses of AstraZeneca among the vaccinated population, but that it has not yet been published in a specialized journal. When these data are known, they will increase confidence in vaccines, he stressed.
