Immune response in over 80 year olds after vaccination with the Pfizer vaccine

A new preprint on a University of Birmingham-led study supported by the UK Coronavirus Immunology Consortium looks at the T-cell and antibody responses in people over 80 years of age after both doses of the Pfizer vaccine. The study also looks at the ability of post-vaccination sera to neutralise both the original Wuhan virus and the Brazilian P.1 variant of concern.

Please note this data is a preprint, so it is early work that has not yet been through peer-review and is not published in a journal.

Journalists dialled to this briefing in to hear the study investigators present their results and answer any questions.


Speakers included:

Prof Paul Moss, UK-CIC lead and Professor of Haematology at the University of Birmingham and Director of Research and Knowledge Transfer in the College of Medicine

Dr Helen Parry, NIHR academic clinical lecturer,  University of Birmingham and Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham
