New CDC Study Suggests That Even Those Who Have Gotten COVID-19 Must Get Vaccinated

Getting infected with COVID-19 is not easy at all, especially if you’re not young anymore and if you have other illnesses. You can struggle with the coronavirus for plenty of time until you get healthy again. Unfortunately, some people even lose the battle with COVID and pass away, as it happened to over 4.3 million patients, according to

While officials see the coronavirus vaccines as the best remedy against the disease, there are still a lot of reluctant people out there. We don’t blame them, neither we encourage such behaviour. The side effects that many people had to deal with after vaccinations have managed to make many so hesitant when it comes to getting injected with either of the substances developed by Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, and so on. If you trust the vaccines or not, you still may be interested in a new study of those from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Get vaccinated for COVID regardless if you’ve gotten the virus before or not

A new study done by the CDC that the government agency speaks on its website reveals data suggesting that vaccination is a good idea even for those who had already been infected with COVID before. The study shows 2.3 times more reinfections with natural immunity by comparison with breakthrough infections for those who had been vaccinated.

To get to the new conclusions, the researchers examined data from Kentucky residents who got COVID in 2020. Vaccination statuses were compared of those who got reinfected in May and June to residents who weren’t reinfected.

The study writes as it appears on the CDC’s website:

May and June were selected because of vaccine supply and eligibility requirement considerations; this period was more likely to reflect resident choice to be vaccinated, rather than eligibility to receive vaccine,

Control participants were Kentucky residents with laboratory-confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection in 2020 who were not reinfected through June 30, 2021.
