International clinical studies have shown that the Covid-19 vaccines, currently used here in South Africa, are effective at preventing hospitalization and death.

This, according to Professor Gregory Hussey, of the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Cape Town.

Hussey says that, on a case to case basis, those who are vaccinated always have a much better Covid-19 outcome than those who are not vaccinated.

He says studies, in the United Kingdom and the USA, have shown that the vaccines saved the lives of many thousands of people.
