The ECDC assures that vaccination against Covid this fall can prevent 32% of hospitalizations

MADRID, (.) – An autumn vaccination campaign against Covid-19 with high acceptance in people aged 60 and over could prevent between 21 and 32 percent of all hospitalizations related to the disease in the countries of the European Union/European Economic Area (EU/EEA) until February 2024, according to the director of the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) at a press conference this Thursday.

We will soon see the arrival of fall and winter, where we anticipate a resurgence of the flu and respiratory syncytial virus. We also see increases in the transmission of Covid-19 in the EU/EEA and we anticipate that the viruses will co-circulate in the coming months,” said Ammonn, to insist on the importance of vaccination.

The director of the ECDC has associated the increase in the spread of Covid-19 with the increase in travel and large gatherings during the summer months and the decrease in immunity to infection “after a long period of low circulation of the virus”.
