>Last night on the news we were told about the new Covid Vaccines saying how effective 95% they are also saying they are more effective than the Flu vaccine that is not as effective in older people?
I didn't see that bit of the news (having given up on the Bolleaux Broadcasting Corporation some time ago).
However, based on education by the collection of medical pros. in my extended family, in the Phase 3 trials that are going on now, one thing they're testing is how effective it is in various groups, one group being the over-65's because their immune systems don't always work as well as younger people's.
Phase 3 trials aren't due to report before early December, so anything about effectiveness before then is political soundbiting/ill-informed speculation/wishful thinking.
