Covid-19 vaccine 93% effective at preventing hospitalisation – Abu Dhabi study

In case of contracting the infection after vaccination, patients have mild symptoms and do not require admission to a hospital or an ICU

Covid-19 vaccines in Abu Dhabi are 93 per cent effective at preventing hospitalisation, while the efficacy of vaccinations at reducing the need of an ICU admission is 95 per cent, a study revealed.

The Abu Dhabi Public Health Centre conducted a study on the efficacy of vaccination in the emirate and found a decrease in the rate of Covid-19 infection after receiving a second vaccine dose.

Those that contracted the infection after receiving the jab, display mild symptoms and do no require admission to hospital or an ICU. Meanwhile, no Covid-19-related deaths have been recorded in the emirate by those who have been fully vaccinated.

Immunity against Covid-19 is best achieved through vaccination and adhering to precautionary measures, and that it is multifaceted and not limited to the presence of antibodies. The study also said that immunity is not guaranteed after infection, as an individual may be infected again.

The study also revealed that the risk of contracting Covid-19 increases as the virus mutates, and that the chances of the mutation rise with its spread. It is also possible that after contracting Covid-19, even if the symptoms are mild, the infection may lead to long-term health complications.

Some senior citizens, people with chronic diseases, and even healthy individuals may be affected by the infection in its aftermath, while some complications such as multi-organ damage and blood clots, among others, may require long-term medical attention.

Abu Dhabi launched a free Covid-19 vaccination campaign for all UAE nationals and residents in January this year, to administer the Sinopharm vaccine.
