Vaccine protects against COVID-19 by 97.5%, said Armenian PM Nikol Pashinyan at Friday's government meeting.

"If we compare the numbers, it turns out that the vaccine protects against infection by 97.5% and hospitalization - by 98.2%," he noted.

According to him, this arithmetic figuratively shows what is happening.

"I understand that the percentage of infection among the vaccinated is lower than the cases of reinfection. Re-infection cases are 3-4%," he added.
