The new corona vaccine has also been found to be effective in preventing infection. Being less susceptible to infection means that the inoculator is less likely to spread the infection.
In addition, people infected after vaccination are less likely to become more severe and spread less easily than those infected without vaccination. In areas where vaccination is actually progressing, there are data showing that the number of infected people is decreasing even if they are not vaccinated.
