According to the BBC, two doses of either vaccine provide equal immunity against symptomatic illness from the Indian version as they do from the Kent variant.
It went on to say that three weeks after the first dose, the vaccines were just 33% effective against the Indian strain.
The vaccines are likely to be more effective at reducing hospital admission and deaths, according to Public Health England, which conducted the report.
The Pfizer vaccine was found to be 88 percent effective at preventing symptomatic disease from the Indian strain two weeks after the second dose, compared to 93 percent effectiveness against the Kent variant, according to the BBC study.
Similarly, the AstraZeneca jab was 60% effective against the Indian variant but just 66% effective against the Kent variant.
