Pfizer-BioNTech's COVID-19 vaccine is 90 percent effective at preventing death from the Delta variant, a new study finds.

Researchers from the University of Edinburgh, in Scotland, gathered data from the country's national vaccine surveillance platform to determine the effectiveness of the vaccines against death. 

The study is the first to show across an entire country how effective vaccines are at preventing fatalities from the Delta variant, which is the most dominant strain of Covid in the UK.
