Re: UK infection rate continues to worsen
UK is actually ahead of the US, with 60% fully vaccinated (2nd dose completed). However, the US population has primarily received Moderna/Pfizer MRNA vaccines, along with a lesser % of JNJ vaccines, while perhaps 30% or more of UK citizens have received the less effective AZN vaccine (82% versus 94% for PFE & Moderna). Further, the AZN vaccine is much less effective at preventing transmission of Covid. I can't find any info on the AZN vaccine versus the Delta variant, which may not be a good sign. It seems to be apparent that which vaccine gets deployed, matters greatly. If Valneva's vaccine is as good as advertised, it will have plenty of room to run, once approved.
