Vaccinated people face lower risks of respiratory problem, hospitalisation and fatality, according to a recent study of the Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research.
According to the study 11% of unvaccinated Covid patients suffered from breathing difficulties whereas the rate was 4% among the vaccinated ones.
Besides, the hospital admission rate among those received double doses of Covid shots was only 7% while it was 23 % for the unvaccinated.
IEDCR conducted the study on 1,334 people aged above 30 and tested positive between May and June.
Of them, 592 did not receive a single vaccine dose and 306 were fully vaccinated.
Seventeen (3%) of the unvaccinated patients died while only one of the vaccinated ones (0.03%) died during this time.
Besides, 19(3%) of the unvaccinated group required ICU support while only 3(below 1 %) of the vaccinated ones needed it.
The study found that most of the patients who had to be hospitalized even after vaccination had underlying health complications.
Besides, presence of antibodies has been found among 98% of people who were vaccinated, according to a separate study of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University Hospital.
The study suggested that antibodies have been found in people who got their vaccine after recovering from Covid-19.
The study was conducted on 209 people between April-July this year.
