The Pfizer Vaccine reduces the risk of dying from Covid-19 this much

The Corona Virus has been with us for more than a year and half, and in just this little time it has spread to almost every country, taking the lives millions of people.

Covid-19 currently has no cure and the only defence we have against the virus is the vaccine. Currently almost every country is on the process of rolling out the Covid-19 vaccine.

The vaccine rollout in the country is underway, its phase began earlier this year with elderly people and frontline workers, the process has been going well to date. People over the age of 18 are now allowed to register and get vaccinated.

The are two vaccines being used in South Africa, which are the Pfizer vaccine and the Johnson and Johnson vaccine. Most people prefer the Pfizer vaccine which requires two doses to be effective.

Even though the vaccines doesn't prevent Covid-19, it is proven effective in the fight against the virus. The risk of dying from Covid-19 is 20 times higher among people who are not vaccinated than those who had the double dose of the Pfizer vaccine.

Many people have been vaccinated against Covid-19, but many are still hesistant to get the jab.
