BUKO Pharma-Kampagne (ed.): Nutzen von Covid-19 Impfungen. Wissensstand noch unbefriedigend, in: Pharma-Brief 10, December 2020. (Benefits of Covid-19 vaccinations. State of knowledge still unsatisfactory.)
In its article, BUKO Pharma-Kampagne addresses the issue of vaccines against the coronavirus.
“Several vaccines against covid-19 are close to approval or have already received emergency approval. But what do we even know about benefits and risks? The media reports high vaccine efficacy of 90% or more. The reports suggest that this means preventing severe disease and interrupting transmission of Covid-19. This is a misunderstanding, probably triggered by the fact that the figures circulating were based largely on brief press releases from the manufacturers, not on independently peer-reviewed scientific publications about the vaccines.”
