CDC Real-World Study Confirms Protective Benefits of mRNA COVID-19 Vaccines

A new CDC study provides strong evidence that mRNA COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective in preventing SARS-CoV-2 infections in real-world conditions among health care personnel, first responders, and other essential workers. These groups are more likely to be exposed to the virus because of their occupations.

The study checked the effectiveness of Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna mRNA vaccines in preventing SARS-CoV-2 infections among 3,950 study participants in six states.

Following the second dose of vaccine (the recommended number of doses), the risk of infection was reduced by 90 percent two or more weeks after vaccination.

Following a single dose of either vaccine, the participants’ risk of infection was reduced by 80 percent two or more weeks after vaccination.

Dr. Yael Vidal, who leads and manages Vidal Medical Concierge in Juno Beach, explained this to patients who seek a Concierge Doctor in Jupiter or nearby areas. Patients continue to inquire about such data, as the pandemic of Covid-19 continues to spread on a daily basis and continues to infect residents of Palm Beach County as well as other regions in Florida and the nation.
