Than being vaxxed. Including against different variants!
In a report currently available on the bioRxiv* preprint server, scientists from the USA have demonstrated that immunity induced by mRNA-based coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) vaccines in previously severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)-infected people has the highest robustness and durability with cross-reactivity against different viral variants.
Pushing the vaxx and natural infection as superior without considering the jab risks.
The study findings reveal that natural infection induces moderate-intensity immunity against SARS-CoV-2 and its variants that remain stable for a long period. In contrast, mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccine-induced immunity gradually declines with time, despite an early robust magnitude
Infection-naïve vaccinee antibodies declined with time to post-infection-alone levels despite two doses, while those that recovered from early pandemic SARS-CoV-2 infection (i.e. before the emergence of Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta (Kupferschmidt, 2021; Summer E. Galloway, January 22, 2021)) elicited antibodies with greater breath across new viral variants than antibodies from infection-naïve vaccinees. Differential antibody durability trajectories favored COVID-19 convalescent subjects with dual memory B cell features of greater antibody somatic mutation and crosscoronavirus reactivity. Collectively, these studies identify an antibody breadth enhancing ability of early pandemic (i.e., pre-variant) SARS-CoV-2 infection, and a durability-enhancing function conferred by recalled immunity.
When comparing COVID-19 convalescents and naïve subjects after vaccination, we found unvaccinated COVID-19 convalescents had significantly greater breadth indexes to all tested variants of concern (VOC) than naïve vaccinees (Figure 2C-G). In addition, vaccination of COVID-19 convalescents did not provide further enhancement of the breadth index for any variant.
Of course, those with natural immunity who can share that benefit within the community will not qualify for a vaccine passport.
Do you ever get the feeling that interested parties wanna keep the pandemic train rollin’ along? And that the ‘vaccine passport’ has nothing to do with reducing viral spread?
