SARS-CoV-2的B.1.617.2(delta)变异株导致印度病例数激增,而且目前已在世界各地发现,包括英国的病例数也大幅增加。BNT162b2和ChAdOx1 nCoV-19疫苗对该变异株的预防效果尚不明确。






接种一剂疫苗(BNT162b2或ChAdOx1 nCoV-19)对delta变异株(30.7%;95%置信区间[CI],25.2~35.7)的预防效果明显低于对alpha变异株(48.7%;95% CI,45.5~51.7)的预防效果;两种疫苗的结果相似。接种两剂BNT162b2疫苗对alpha变异株的预防效果为93.7%(95% CI,91.6~95.3),对delta变异株的预防效果为88.0%(95% CI,85.3~90.1)。接种两剂ChAdOx1 nCoV-19疫苗对alpha变异株的预防效果为74.5%(95% CI,68.4~79.4),对delta变异株的预防效果为67.0%(95% CI,61.3~71.8)。



接种两剂疫苗后,疫苗对delta变异株与alpha变异株的预防效果仅有很小差异。接种一剂疫苗后的疫苗效果绝对差异较为明显。这一结果促使我们努力提高脆弱人群的两剂疫苗接种率(由英国公共卫生局[Public Health England]资助)。
