Question: How effective is the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine?

Answer: The AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine offers a strong level of protection against severe illness, hospitalisation and death. Recent reports indicate the relative effectiveness of the AstraZeneca vaccine against symptomatic infection to be up to 80% after two doses. There are emerging reports that suggest those who have received the AstraZeneca vaccine are less likely to transmit the virus to others. Researchers are still determining the exact size of this effect.
