Sinovac Effectiveness Against the Delta Variant of COVID 19

September 8, 2021

The Delta variant of the virus that causes Covid-19 doubles the risk of hospitalization compared to the Alpha variant and has now become the dominant strain worldwide.

BUT always remember, the vaccine is not 100% protective against Covid 19 infection. It is therefore important not to blame a brand of vaccine on cases where you get Covid infection inspite of vaccination. Whether you got mrna like Pfizer or AZ or Sinovac, breakthrough infections can occur.

Sinovac which is the widely used vaccine in the country and other parts of Asia and China has made a lot worried due to lack of real world data on its effectiveness against the delta variant.

What the world knows is that China’s inactivated vaccines continue to be very protective during a recent outbreak of Covid-19 in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong.

The data from their experience has finally been published pending review which now provides us the real world evidence about the ability of Sinovac to stave off the highly infectious variant.
