Covid 19 Hybrid Immunity: Increased And Longer-Lasting Protection

Covid 19 Hybrid Immunity: Increased And Longer-Lasting Protection
SHARE

There’s been a lot of talk about the immunity that an individual can get following getting sick with covid and the one following the covid vaccines.

Not too long ago, we revealed that natural immunity is finally getting the praise that it deserves.

You may recall that we posted an article in which we were addressing the fact that the CDC admitted the benefits of natural immunity in front of covid.

Back in October 2020, just two months before the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) first granted emergency use authorization for COVID-19 vaccines, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, who went on to become director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) under the Biden administration, claimed that vaccines would be needed to achieve herd immunity.

It was said back then that this was because “there is no evidence for lasting protective immunity to SARS-CoV-2 following natural infection”.

The same publication continued and said the following about a new study:

“A study by CDC researchers published on January 19, 2022, in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) not only shows incontrovertibly that natural immunity offered better protection than vaccine-induced immunity against the Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2.”

Hybrid immunity 

Now, CNN just noted that Pfizer/BioNTech’s Covid-19 mRNA vaccine provides an added layer of protection against reinfection for people who have been previously infected with Covid-19.

It’s also important to note fact that the vaccine also brings increased immune durability over time, according to two studies published Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine.

CNN also revealed the fact that the studies offer more insight into the concept of hybrid immunity: when previously infected people, who have “natural immunity,” then get vaccine-acquired immunity. We suggest that you check out the original article in order to learn more details.
