Great news from a Scottish study of COVID-19 vaccines

Great news from a Scottish study of COVID-19 vaccines in the real world, and, really, is anything more real than beautiful, rainy Scotland, especially the highlands and the Munros in the highlands?

Simply the best.

Anyway, the real purpose of this post is to discuss the findings which in a nutshell were great: Focusing on a period of 4-5 weeks after a single dose of either of the vaccines in mass use in Scotland, the authors report “an estimated vaccine effect (on hospitalization) of 91% for COVID-19 hospital admissions for BNT162b2 (Pfizer), and an estimated 88% vaccine effect during the same period for ChAdOx1” (AZ).

Can’t be repeated often enough: These vaccines are miraculously effective.
