We know that COVID-19 vaccines are incredibly effective in preventing severe illness and death, even against the Delta variant (1,2,3,4)! However, it’s still important to be cautious.
The Delta variant is spreading more easily among people than the original virus strain (5,6) especially in places where vaccination rates are low (7). It is pushing places like Australia, where less than 10% of the population is fully vaccinated, back into lockdown (8).
In other words, vaccines are winning against variants. But only if we get our shots! Check out this video for more information on how vaccines protect us from variants like Delta.
