Brazilian trials of the Sinovac vaccine CoronaVac for instance, showed an efficacy rate of around 50.4%, which is barely over the 50% threshold needed for regulatory approval by the World Health Organization (WHO).


So, they are 50% protected.  Good job.

And what does Thailand say... it's up in the 90's or something after the first jab?

As I understanding - vaccines such as Sinovac have been proven to protect 50% of vaccinate people from actually contracting Covid-19 at all, the remainder are protected from serious symptoms leading to death: 


i.e. For Sinovac the figures are reportedly: 


50.4 % effective at preventing people from contracting Covid-19

78 % effective at preventing mild Covid-19 cases which may need treatment

100 % effective at staving off moderate to serious cases of Covid-19



Other vaccines have better stats, but they’re not better if they’re not here.
