Moreover, “those who’d had a jab were more likely to be completely asymptomatic,” the researchers at KCL added.
“Only 104 individuals were hospitalised in the vaccinated group, compared to 239 in the unvaccinated group.”
The risk of long Covid was also reduced in the vaccinated group, with those over the age of 60 most at risk.
Professor Sebastien Ourselin, Head of Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Sciences, commented on the research results.
