COVID-19 Survivors Have Broad, Longer-Term Immunity
re: Does it make sense to vaccinate those who have had COVID?
Real science is never settled, and anyone who has certainty on such things is not qualified to discuss it.
Good news for those have had COVID, which leads to natural immunity. Indeed, natural immunity hints at being better and lasting longer, which makes sense.
The Epoch Times: COVID-19 Survivors Have Broad, Longer-Term Immunity
By Rajee Suri, August 7, 2021
People who have recovered from COVID-19 retain broad and effective longer-term immunity to the disease, according to a new study.
Findings of the study, which is the most comprehensive of its kind so far, have implications for expanding understanding about human immune memory as well as future vaccine development for coronaviruses.
For the longitudinal study in Cell Reports Medicine, researchers looked at 254 patients with mostly mild to moderate symptoms of SARS-CoV-2 infection over a period of more than eight months (250 days) and found that their immune response to the virus remained durable and strong.
WIND: great news! For everyone. But best to see these results reproduced to raise confidence.
The open question is that for those at low risk, might infection and thus natural immunity be lower risk and superior to vaccination? No one wants to ask that question what with the current vaccination hysteria. And the risk of Long-Haul COVID might be too great to consider that path for adults.
However, it might be that natural immunity for young children is a really good idea for better and longer-lasting immunity and when set against the uknown risks of vaccination, and that all this school masking nonsense is doing yet one more disservice. After all, children don’t spread COVID well, and the risks to youngsters are nil.
