Re-analyzed data shows that AstraZeneca’s vaccine and mRNA-based vaccines are equally protective in preventing hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19.

The above information was provided by experts at the Asia regional webinar on ‘Protective Effect of COVID-19 Vaccines’ held on April 27th.

At the seminar, Professor Guy Thwaites – Director of the Clinical Research Unit at Oxford University in Vietnam, shared that COVID-19 vaccines play a particularly important role in protecting people’s lives as well as protecting people’s lives. such as supporting countries in Southeast Asia, some of which have returned to normal over the past year.

The expert assessment concluded that AstraZeneca’s vaccine and other mRNA vaccines currently available offer equivalent and high protection against the life-threatening risks of COVID-19.

“This will be important information for policymakers in the region as they consider the optimal implementation plan of the COVID-19 vaccination program for people in each country over the next 12 months.” – Professor Guy Thwaites said.

associate Prof. Dr. Do Van Dung – Dean of the Faculty of Public Health, University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Ho Chi Minh City said that the ability to protect the body from serious developments of COVID-19 is the most important measure for evaluating vaccines be effectiveness. COVID-19.

After vaccination, the level of antibodies in the blood gradually decreases over time, but the body’s other defense mechanisms do not weaken as quickly. They help the body fight off the virus, thereby reducing the risk of serious consequences.

It can be reassuring to see that its effectiveness in preventing hospitalizations and deaths is comparable to that of the most commonly used COVID-19 vaccines.

A recent expert review of data from 79 real studies found that two doses of today’s most popular vaccines, AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine and mRNA-based vaccines, demonstrated comparable protective efficacy in preventing COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths .

The above data was evaluated by infectious disease experts across Asia and comes from VIEW-Hub, an interactive platform that visualizes global usage and impact data. Vaccine developed by the John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the International Vaccine Access Center (IVAC), USA. The platform is updated weekly and includes real studies on vaccine effectiveness.

AstraZeneca’s vaccine is a viral vector vaccine that uses a non-pathogenic version of the virus as part of the vaccine, teaching the body how to fight off disease when subsequently exposed to the real virus. Scientists have used this vaccine technology for the past 40 years to prevent other infectious diseases such as influenza, Zika, Ebola and HIV.

AstraZeneca and its global partners have shipped more than 2.9 billion doses of vaccine to more than 180 countries, about two-thirds of which went to low- and middle-income countries. It is estimated that AstraZeneca’s vaccine has prevented 50 million COVID-19 infections, 5 million hospitalizations and saved more than 1 million lives.

To date, Vietnam has received more than 239 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine, of which mRNA technology has the largest number, followed by AstraZeneca vaccine and other vaccines. Vietnam has injected more than 213 million doses of vaccines of all types.
