Vaccinated people may still spread Covid: UK expert

  • Exclusive: Five million vaccinated Britons told to carry on 'as if you have the virus' by Jonathan Van-Tam

He says, like anyone, he is "desperate to return to seeing the people we love", adding: "The vaccine has brought considerable hope and we are in the final furlong of the pandemic but for now, vaccinated or not, we still have to follow the guidance for a bit longer".

Both the Pfizer-BioNTech and Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccines require two doses, and figures so far reflect those given the first dose.

A further 32 vaccine sites are set to open across England this week.

Van-Tam said that the immune response is "only fully trained up around two or three weeks after you have each of your two jabs".

Those who begin easing off after vaccination are potentially continuing the "chains of transmission" to people who still need inoculation, Prof Jonathan Van-Tam warned.

He added: "If you change your behavior, you can continue to spread the virus, keep the number of cases high, and put others at risk who also need a vaccine but are in line".

As per the report, senior doctors have called on health officials in United Kingdom to cut the gap between the first and second doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.

Earlier, UK's Health Secretary Matt Hancock had claimed that 75 per cent of people aged above 80 have received their first virus jab. The British Medical Association has argued that no other country is taking the UK's approach.

He said: "But what none of these (who ask reasonable questions) will tell me is: who on the at-risk list should suffer slower access to their first dose so that someone else who's already had one dose (and therefore most of the protection) can get a second?"

People arriving into the United Kingdom from overseas could be required to quarantine in a hotel, according to a number of the Sunday papers, with the Cabinet split on whether the policy should apply to all arrivals or just to those returning from coronavirus hotspots.

At least eight different vaccine passport schemes have received Government funding totalling £450,000 up to January 1, according to the Sunday Telegraph, although Cabinet minister Michael Gove has previously said such certificates were "not the plan".

It is possible for people to "still get sick" after receiving an experimental vaccine from any vaccine, said Yuli Edelstein, the country's health minister.

In Wales, four vaccination centres have been shut as officials brace for more snowy weather.

Another 1,348 deaths within 28 days of a positive coronavirus test were reported in the United Kingdom on Saturday, in addition to 33,552 new infections.
