We have gained a great advantage against the epidemic with the effect of vaccines against the coronavirus, which has gripped the world for about 2 years.
The study conducted in England focused on AstraZeneca (AZ) and Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines, which are also used in our country.
According to the news of the Mirros newspaper, which includes the results of the research, elderly British people who have AZ vaccine are less likely to have Kovid antibodies than those who are vaccinated with Pfizer.
Because while the antibody rate was determined as 85 percent in those who had AZ vaccine, this rate was measured as 98 percent in Pfizer/BioNTech.
In the study, it was stated that for the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, ‘After two doses of vaccine, while the antibody positivity was 97.8 percent, it was 100 percent at all ages except 80 years and older’.
For AstraZeneca, “Positivity was determined to be over 90 percent until the age of 69, 89.2 percent for those aged 70-79, and 83.6 percent for those aged 80 and over.”
On the other hand, vaccines applied against the new type of coronavirus (Kovid-19) worldwide have exceeded 3 billion 540 million doses.
The country with the highest dose of vaccine compared to the population was the United Arab Emirates (UAE) with 162.99 doses per 100 people.
According to the data of the Ministry of Health, 60 million 852 thousand 611 doses of vaccine have been administered in Turkey so far.
While Turkey ranks 9th in the world in terms of the total number of vaccines, the number of vaccines per 100 people was 72.09. First dose of vaccine was administered to 38 million 508 thousand 314 people and second dose of vaccine was administered to 18 million 902 thousand 259 people.
Kovid-19 vaccines, which have been allowed for use or emergency use to date, are administered intermittently in two doses, except for one. Therefore, the number of doses administered does not mean that the same number of individuals have been vaccinated.
The number of cases worldwide has exceeded 189 million 294 thousand, more than 4 million 76 thousand people died.
