What is the summary or conclusion of this debate?
Authors use different models to measure the impact of vaccines, which indicate that even with minimal protection against infection, immunization can have a significant influence on COVID-19 epidemics. There is sufficient data to prove this conclusion.
In this paper, researchers use a probabilistic approach (i.e Gamma Distribution) in order to decipher the Covid-19 transmission based on the stage of the disease (asymptomatic,pre-symptomatic or symptomatic). The variation of the probability of transmission of the virus was incorporated intending to conclude on the efficacy of the vaccine. Concerning the vaccine allocation, the strategy of the vaccination campaign relying on vaccinating first healthcare workers, adults with comorbidities and individuals aged 65 and older, seems to have been beneficial as the attack rate was significantly reduced by 50% in the aforementioned groups.
