A recent study finds people who have already had Covid-19 are unlikely to get any benefit from vaccination, because they already have immunity from their infection.
The study was conducted on employees of the Cleveland Clinic Health System.
It's in line with the initial studies by vaccine makers Moderna and Pfizer, which also did not find a benefit to vaccinating people who have already had Covid-19.
The findings directly contradict false guidance distributed by CDC.
Top CDC officials and the vaccine advisory committee falsely stated that studies showed Covid-19 is effective in people who have already had Covid-19. Once the disinformation was exposed by Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Kentucky), there was no word that anybody at CDC was held accountable.
Authorities say the disinformation by CDC resulted in many people who didn't need the vaccine and could not benefit from it getting in line ahead of others who needed the vaccine when there was a short supply.
The cumulative incidence of SARS-CoV-2 infection remained almost zero among previously infected unvaccinated subjects, previously infected subjects who were vaccinated, and previously uninfected subjects who were vaccinated, compared with a steady increase in cumulative incidence among previously uninfected subjects who remained unvaccinated.Nabin K.
