Regarding the Delta variant: While the Delta variant is more easily spread and more infections, preliminary data suggest that after two doses, the Pfizer- BioNTech vaccine is 88% effective against symptomatic disease and 96% effective against hospitalization. One dose is significantly less protective. While the data regarding Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines against the delta variant is not available, the effectiveness for two doses of the Moderna vaccine or a single dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine is expected to be similar.
