Pfizer, AstraZeneca vaccines highly effective for people 70 and over: UK study Updated: 2021-03-02 10:25:27 KST

New data from the UK shows the Pfizer and AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective for people 70 and over.
Based on data gathered since January, Public Health England revealed a real-world study showing a single dose of either is more than 80 percent effective at preventing hospitalization, specifically among those over 80 years old, around 3 to 4 weeks after the jab.
The study comes as many countries, including South Korea, remain hesitant to authorize the AstraZeneca vaccine for elderly people due to concerns over its efficacy.
