    Covid: Pfizer and AstraZeneca jabs effective against Indian variant - study:

    Two jabs of either vaccine give a similar level of protection against symptomatic disease from the Indian variant as they do for the Kent one.

    However, both vaccines were only 33% effective against the Indian variant three weeks after the first dose.

    That's because the vaccines are only 33% effective against the Indian variant after one dose so they are bumping them forwards.
