People 90% less likely to die with Covid after booster jab
The Metro says People who have had a booster jab are 90% less likely to die with Covid-19 than those who had just two shots, according to a huge new study.
Researchers looked at nearly 850,000 vaccinated people aged 50 and over in Israel who had been given a second Pfizer jab at least five months earlier.
It found that an average of just 0.16 boosted people died per 100,000 per day (some 65 people among nearly three quarters of a million).
That compares to 2.98 in the double-jabbed group (137 out of roughly 85,000) – a rate that is still far, far lower than in unvaccinated people who get infected.
