COVID-19 vaccines less effective against Delta variant: WHO official

A WHO official said on Monday (June 21) that COVID-19 vaccines are less effective against the Delta coronavirus variant, which was first detected in India. However, Maria Van Kerkhove, the World Health Organization`s technical lead for COVID-19, admitted that the vaccines still prevent severe disease and death.

"There is a recent study that came out in The Lancet ... that looked at the reduced titer neutralization from the alpha, beta, gamma, and delta variants showing a reduction in neutralization on the delta variant. Not as much as the beta variant, which is the variant that was first detected in South Africa ... Having said that, these vaccines are still highly effective. They produce enough antibodies to protect against severe disease and death," Van Kerkhove said at a press briefing.
