According to a new study, the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine also protects unvaccinated individuals within the locality.
We all know that Covid-19 is a disease caused by a novel strain of coronavirus, named SARS-CoV-2. Recently several studies have highlighted the importance of mass vaccination. This will help to control the spread of this fatal virus.
There is a study that now claims that the BNT162b vaccine from Pfizer-BioNTech helps in protecting even the unvaccinated people.
An observational study was conducted by Milman O et.al. Researchers evaluated the complete vaccination records as well as test results that were obtained during mass vaccination programs within a large population.
In this, they found that the number of vaccines administered within each community was strongly linked with a substantial reduction of positivity rate later. But this was found among a cohort of participants under the category of 16 age group. It is to be noted that they were not vaccinated.
