VACCINE EFFICACY, WANING IMMUNITY & BOOSTER DOSE - Report FROM ISRAEL

With Yair Goldberg Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel and Amit Huppert, The Gertner Institute for Epidemiology & Health Policy Research, Sheba Medical Center, Israel

Yair Goldberg and Amit Huppert will present their results from clinical trials in Israel on vaccine efficacy, waning immunity, and the booster vaccination. Worldwide shortage of vaccination against COVID-19 infection while the pandemic is still uncontrolled, led many states to the dilemma whether or not to vaccinate previously infected persons.

After a period with almost no COVID-19 infection, a resurgent COVID-19 outbreak started in Israel mid June Z021. Possible reasons for the breakthrough were reduced vaccine effectiveness against the Delta variant, and waning immunity. Data are also needed regarding the effect of the booster dose on the rate of confirmed COVID-19 cases and the rate of severe illness.

The team from Israel analyzed these questions in different studies and will present results and their conclusions in this webinar.
