The Ministry of Health fears that the high transmission affects vaccinated people who have not managed to get immunized and become seriously ill.

Some Autonomous Communities have already taken measures around nightlife and inoculation of adolescents.

07.11 The EC says that in July there will be enough doses to vaccinate 70% of adults

The European Commission has reported that in July there will be enough doses of the vaccine against Covid-19 to be able to vaccinate 70% of the adult population of the European Union and asked the authorities to administer them, given the disparities that exist between the Twenty-seven on the vaccination rate.

"We have set a goal of vaccinating 70% of the adult population. We believe that a sufficient number of doses will be administered this month to allow Member States to achieve this goal," said Stefan De Keersmaecker, Health spokesman for the Community Executive , according to Efe.

A study in Israel ensures that the effectiveness of Pfizer against the Delta variant is lower than previously believed

Israel has presented a new study in which it notes a decrease in the effectiveness of the

Pfizer

vaccine

against the

coronavirus

in preventing infections and symptomatic diseases, but claims that it remains highly effective in preventing serious diseases. The decline in effectiveness of

Pfizer's

vaccine

coincided with the spread of the

Delta variant

and the end of social distancing restrictions in Israel.

The study, published in the Financial Times, claims that the vaccine's effectiveness in preventing infections and symptomatic illnesses fell to 64% since June 6, the Health Ministry said.

A figure far removed from the 94% that most published studies on the drug contemplated.

At the same time, the

vaccine

was 93% effective in preventing hospitalizations and serious illness from the

coronavirus

.

Pfizer

noted that the Israeli data was "preliminary and has not yet been fully evaluated."

He said existing evidence - a combination of lab tests and real-world studies - showed that his vaccine worked against a number of worrying variants, including Delta.

The study was based on "preliminary" figures relating to the efficacy of the

vaccine

continuously collected by Israeli health authorities, warned Professor Nadav Davidovitch, who is part of the government's expert advisory committee on

Covid-19

. "Delta is much more infectious, but it doesn't seem to lead to as many serious illnesses or death, especially since we now have the vaccine," he said.

In May,

Public Health England

found that the vaccine provided 88% protection against symptomatic infection with

Delta

and 93% against the

Alpha variant

first identified in Kent.

According to that study, the protection conferred by two doses of the

AstraZeneca

vaccine

, used largely in the UK mass vaccination program, was less, 66% for the Delta variant.
