Health authorities, however, have warned against complacency, amid the spike in cases in countries such as Germany, which is facing its fourth COVID-19 wave, and Austria following the easing of restrictions there.

Scientific studies have also found a waning of vaccine efficacy for COVID-19 infection five to seven months after the administration of the second dose.
