Sunday’s figures come following good news that two doses of the Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is 88% effective against the Indian B1617.2 variant.

Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan had previously warned that the variant may ‘pose a risk’ to the progress made in suppressing COVID numbers as vaccine efficacy against the strain was unknown.

Public Health England has now published data indicating that the Pfizer jab is 88% effective after two doses.

Meanwhile, two doses of AstraZeneca jab was 60% effective against the strain.

The Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines are 93% and 66% effective against the Kent strain respectively.diagram: Sunday’s figures come following good news that two doses of the Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is 88% effective against the Indian B1617.2 variant.

With one dose after three weeks, both vaccines were 33% effective against symptomatic disease — compared to 50% against the UK strain.
