Among the 51,000 people who died in England after being infected with a corona in the first half of 2021, 256 were fully vaccinated. British statistics agency ONS has informed the BBC.
The figures show that the vaccines offer a high degree of protection against illness and death, the health service said. However, according to the service, the fully vaccinated people who died after being infected were very vulnerable to Covid.
The health service states that it was to be expected that fully vaccinated people would also die after being infected with the coronavirus because the vaccines are not 100 percent effective.
In the UK, 80 percent of people aged 16 and over have had two shots.
