All four vaccines are effective at preventing severe, symptomatic infection with COVID-19. The AstraZeneca vaccine is highly effective at preventing hospitalization and death from COVID-19. Even one dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine can lower the risk of a COVID-19 infection leading to hospitalization. The best way to prevent COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations in Canada is to increase population immunity. The more people who receive vaccines, the more we will be able to reduce or prevent community spread.
