There you have it in @NEJM. Pfizer is ~90% effective against delta. AstraZeneca is ~70%. This is similar to effectiveness against other variants, including alpha. Vaccines work, even against variants. Get vaccinated if you haven't already. nejm.org/doi/full/10.10…

Worth repeating: “Only modest differences in vaccine effectiveness were noted with the delta variant as compared with the alpha variant after the receipt of two vaccine doses.” nejm.org/doi/full/10.10…

Good news in the fight against the Delta variant - these COVID vaccines are highly protective. As expected from prior studies (and other viruses/vaccines) the booster dose is needed for optimal cross-protective immunity nejm.org/doi/full/10.10…

What we have been eagerly awaiting: mRNA vaccine efficacy against Delta is 88% 😎😎 BUT 2 doses are absolutely necessary, as 1 dose only provides 30% protection - a sharp contrast to protection against wild type virus 😬nejm.org/doi/full/10.10…
