According to the results of a large series of studies carried out by the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) on more than half a million patients, also announced on Friday.

the third booster dose also provides almost 90 percent protection against hospital-induced disease in the case of infection with the omicron coronavirus variant.

In her New Year’s message from Downing Street, Boris Johnson highlighted that doubling the pace of the vaccination campaign has led to the goal of giving all adults the opportunity to receive a third dose by the last day of the year.

In order to curb the spread of omicrons, the British government decided in November to allow all English residents over the age of 18 to book a third dose one month before the original end-January deadline.

According to the latest data set released by the British Department of Health on Friday night almost 60 per cent of the British adult population – more than 33.9 million people – actually received three doses of the vaccine.

The first dose was given to 90 per cent of the population over 12 years of age and the second to 82.4 per cent, bringing the total number of first, second and third vaccinations given so far in the UK to over 133 million.

In his New Year’s message, the British Prime Minister said that he was asking all those who thought that the disease could not cope with them to take a look at the intensive care units of hospitals, the miserable, unnecessary suffering of those who had not given themselves the third dose, and think that all this can reach them.

Based on data from the British government 90 percent of patients admitted to intensive care units for Covid-19 disease caused by coronavirus did not self-administer the third dose of the vaccine.

Comprehensive investigation

UKHSA has recently studied 600,000 patients in England who have been confirmed or suspected to be infected with the omicron coronavirus variant.

The study report, released on Friday night, highlights that a single dose of the vaccine is 52 percent effective and two doses of the vaccine are 72 percent effective in preventing the development of a disease that requires hospitalization, although 25 weeks after the second dose, this protective efficacy drops to 52 percent.

However, the third dose of the vaccine increases the effectiveness of preventing severe omicron disease to 88 percent two weeks after administration, and data to date suggest that

the high level of protection provided by the three doses lasts longer

– is in the UKHSA inspection report.

The health and safety office measured the effectiveness of the AstraZeneca / Oxford, Pfizer / BioNTech and Moderna vaccines.

In Friday’s New Year’s message, Boris Johnson asked those who had not yet done so to have a third dose of the vaccine as their New Year’s vow. “It’s a lot easier than losing weight or writing a diary,” the British prime minister added.

“Whatever challenges fate poses to us, whatever our concerns in the coming weeks and months, mainly due to the increase in the number of patients treated with omicrons and hospitals, we can say one thing with complete certainty: we are in an incomparably better position today than we were last year,” he said. Prime Minister.
