According to a study of thousands of healthcare workers who received the Pfizer – BioNTech 1 vaccination, people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are less likely to become infected with the coronavirus if they have a relatively high level of virus-blocking antibodies .

The analysis adds to a growing body of evidence that levels of a person's "neutralizing" antibodies, which block the infection of SARS-CoV-2 cells, make it possible to predict whether this person will become infected.

A reliable predictive marker, known as the protection correlate, can help regulators approve new vaccines without requiring large clinical trials. It can also help them assess the need for booster shots to protect against new viral variants. The study "is an important step in further testing the use of the neutralization titer as a protection correlate"
