The matter is drawing much attention, because whether the vaccines are effective for children and when their inoculations will start could affect the timing of the full resumption of in-person classes nationwide.

The second study by Pfizer and the Israeli Health Ministry has neither been peer-reviewed nor officially published; although a draft was leaked on Twitter. Some scientists disputed its accuracy.

A cargo container containing Malaysia's first shipment of Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 coronavirus vaccines is unloaded following its arrival at the Malaysia Airlines Berhad Cargo area near Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang, outside Kuala Lumpur, on Sunday. "Half of the population is still not immune".

If confirmed, the early results on lab-tested infections are encouraging because they indicate the vaccine may also prevent asymptomatic carriers from spreading the virus that causes COVID-19.

The experts also expressed their hope the vaccines show the epidemic may be able to be controlled due to their efficacy.

Lead researcher, professor Aziz Sheikh, director of the University of Edinburgh's Usher Institute, said: "These results are very encouraging and have given us great reasons to be optimistic for the future".

The data were published on the day the United Kingdom government outlined a plan for England to slowly emerge from a lockdown in place since January 4. Talks are ongoing with Pfizer-BioNTech to increase the supply, the report said. Spokespeople declined to comment on unpublished data.

And, it’s important to account for the time and effort spent by administrative staff handling these denied claims. They also have the potential to adversely affect patients’ opinions about the organization.

He said the data was "encouraging" when looking at the effect of vaccination against the United Kingdom variant of coronavirus.

She is urging everyone to get the vaccination when it becomes available to them.

"That means that the true reduction in transmission is lower than the estimate of 89.4%", McLaren said. But other experts have argued that it would be very unusual for a vaccine effective at preventing illness to have no effect on reducing transmission, and that it's not helpful to leave people anxious about an unlikely outcome. "And that would be very good news". It also demonstrates it is effective at protecting against the so-called United Kingdom or Kent variant (B.1.1.7). Two RNA vaccines namely the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and the Moderna vaccine, a peptide vaccine EpiVacCorona, three conventional inactivated vaccines namely BBIBP-CorV, Covaxin and CoronaVac as well as four viral vector vaccines namely Sputnik V, the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine, Convidicea and the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Even as Pfizer uses "pandemic pricing" during the crisis, the company is also paying for materials, labor, factory overhead, shipping, distribution costs and more to deliver doses, D'Amelio said.

Real-world data is offering hope that mRNA vaccines are highly effective at limiting infection and presumably transmission of the coronavirus, in addition to their already-known ability to prevent symptoms of covid-19.

Research from Scottish universities and Public Health Scotland, meanwhile, finds that the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine reduced the risk of hospitalization by 94 percent four weeks after the first dose, while the BioNTech/Pfizer jab reduced the risk by 85 percent.
