A real-world test of Pfizer's COVID vaccine is backing up the drugmaker's original data for how effective it is.

The results come from a mass vaccination campaign in Israel.

After two shots, the vaccine was 92% effective at preventing severe cases of COVID.

It was also 72% effective at preventing death two to three weeks after the first shot.
