Many severe cases of COVID-19 could be prevented if people would vaccinate themselves, said the chief physician of the Norh-Estonian regional hospital, and the member of the Science Board, Peep Talving in the Estonian TV program "Esimene stuudio”.
Although the efficiency of the vaccines drops after the 6th month, and people can get contracted with the virus, the efficiency is still there if to look at the number of the hospitalization and the number of deaths, as written on ERR News.
He added that only one fully vaccinated person in PERH has needed intensive care, and that was a very short period. All others in intensive care, need that long-term and are severely ill.
In his opinion, it's very likely that because the number of non-vaccinated people is so high, the number of hospitalizations can reach the levels in spring — 727 people.
