Effect of the coronavirus vaccination delays

What are the effects of Covid-19 vaccine delays

Several vaccine delays and cutbacks have been reported. Instead of the 2 required vaccinations within 3 weeks, that should give 95% immunity, the second shot of the vaccination is given after 12 weeks.

It is currently not entirely clear how this will affect immunity or severity of getting ill with Covid-19.
