Nationwide Study Shows BNT162b2 mRNA Vaccine Is Effective

WEDNESDAY, Feb. 24, 2021 (HealthDay News) -- The BNT162b2 mRNA vaccine is effective for COVID-19-related outcomes, including hospitalization, severe illness, and death, in a nationwide, mass vaccination setting, according to a study published online Feb. 24 in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Noa Dagan, M.D., from Clalit Health Services in Tel Aviv, Israel, and colleagues examined the effectiveness of the BNT162b2 mRNA vaccine using data from Israel's largest health care organization. All 596,618 persons who were newly vaccinated during Dec. 20, 2020, to Feb. 1, 2021, were matched to 596,618 unvaccinated controls. Study outcomes included documented infection with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, symptomatic COVID-19, COVID-19-related hospitalization, severe illness, and death.

The researchers found that at 14 through 20 days after the first dose and at seven or more days after the second dose, the estimated vaccine effectiveness was 46 and 92 percent, respectively, for documented infection; 57 and 94 percent for symptomatic COVID-19; 74 and 87 percent for hospitalization; and 62 and 92 percent for severe disease. For preventing death from COVID-19, the estimated effectiveness was 72 percent for days 14 through 20 after the first dose. Across age groups, the estimated effectiveness was consistent for documented infection and symptomatic COVID-19 in specific subpopulations, with potentially slightly lower effectiveness in those with multiple coexisting conditions.

"This study estimates a high effectiveness of the BNT162b2 vaccine for preventing symptomatic COVID-19 in a noncontrolled setting," the authors write. "These results strengthen the expectation that newly approved vaccines can help to mitigate the profound global effects of the COVID-19 pandemic."

New Coronavirus Variant Surging in California

WEDNESDAY, Feb. 24, 2021 (HealthDay News) -- A coronavirus variant first identified in California is more contagious than previous forms of the virus and is spreading across the state, two new studies show.

One study revealed that compared with other variants, this variant produces twice as many viral particles inside the body and may be better at evading the immune system and vaccines, The New York Times reported.

The study also confirmed that the variant -- called B.1.427/B.1.429 and first detected in December -- has surged across California. The second study showed that the variant has spread rapidly in San Francisco's Mission District in the past few months. The studies have not yet been published in a scientific journal or subjected to peer review.

"I wish I had better news to give you -- that this variant is not significant at all," said Charles Chiu, M.D., a virologist at the University of California, San Francisco, and an author of the first study, The Times reported. "But unfortunately, we just follow the science."

The B.1.427/B.1.429 variant has been detected in 45 U.S. states to date and in several other countries, including Australia, Denmark, Mexico, and Taiwan. But so far, it has become widespread only in California. By late January, it had become the predominant variant in California, and cases caused by the variant are now doubling every 18 days, according to Chiu and colleagues.

Vaccination-side effects

What do you know about side effects 2 weeks after the vaccine Pfeizer-second dose.

Here are some of your thoughts on Vaccination

Should patients under immunosuppressive treatment be vaccinated against Covid-19? How about those who have recovered from Covid, when should they get vaccinated?

Over the past months, the G-Med community has been discussing vaccination decisions, its effects and advisability to patients suffering from different pre conditions. Immunodepression, diabetes, rheumatological issues, among several others, were some of the conditions debated in the G-Med community in light of the decision to vaccinate against Covid-19. Our physician-only community continues to debate this crucial topic, and to share their insights with their colleagues. 

Thank you for your thoughtful contribution. Here are some of the issues discussed:
