SARS-CoV-2 Postvaccination Infections Among Staff Members of a Tertiary Care University Hospital – Vienna, January-July 2021; an Exploratory Study on 8 500 Employees with Better Outcome of Vector than m-RNA Vaccine by Sophie Brunner, Tibor Spath, Gabriela Kornek, Bernhard Parschalk, Maximilian Schnetzinger, Robert Strassl, Rebeka Savic, Andrea Foit, Helene Resch, Florian Thalhammer :: SSRN

Interpretation: mRNA and vector vaccines against COVID-19 are both highly effective in protecting against a broad genomic spectrum of SARS-CoV-2 infections, at least with respect to severe illness. In the present investigation VAXZEVRIA was more effective than COMIRNATY with respect to prevent breakthrough infections after full immunization, however, it seems important, that all recommended vaccine doses are applicated. Maintaining distinct precautions and ongoing testing, at least for the immediate period after vaccination, to detect asymptomatic infections is highly recommended.
