SAINT LOUIS – Annual boosters of the COVID-19 vaccine might not be necessary, according to a new study.
A new study indicates some COVID-19 vaccines could offer long-term protection, longer than the protection offered by flu vaccines, which need boosting every year.
Researchers at Washington University in Saint Louis found people who got two doses of Pfizer’s Coronavirus vaccine produced a type of immune cell called a ‘b-cell’ which should, in theory, keep pumping out protection for years, making follow-up COVID vaccines unnecessary for the time being.
Experts are now looking at people who recovered from an infection and then got vaccinated.
It’s possible that group could have an even stronger and broader immune response.
The study was published Monday in the medical journal: Nature.
people who got two doses of Pfizer’s Coronavirus vaccine produced a type of immune cell called a ‘b-cell’ which should, in theory, keep pumping out protection for years, making follow-up COVID vaccines unnecessary for the time being.
The latest claim is that the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “Delta” variant is “spreading like wildfire,” and the most affected by it are those who were already injected with “vaccines.”
According to the latest data, people who took a Wuhan Flu shot or two are up to eight times more likely to test “positive” or have to be hospitalized.
A preliminary statistical analysis found that hospitalization rates and absolute mortality due to the Delta variant are substantially higher among the “vaccinated” compared to the unvaccinated.
The figures show that among patients who test positive for the Delta variant, the mortality rate for those who are “fully vaccinated,” meaning they received both doses of an mRNA injection, is nearly eight times higher.
This corresponds to similar research from Public Health England which determined that vaccinated people are 600 percent more likely to die from Delta than unvaccinated people.
In England, it is now clearly seen in the data that those who have been injected are responsible for the spread of Delta. And the more people that get vaccinated, the more Delta is spreading.
“The delta variant infection rate of people who received at least [one] dose of vaccine is lower than that of fully vaccinated people while higher than that of unvaccinated people,” reports Gnews.
