CLEVELAND (WJW) – A clinic in Cleveland recently studied the effectiveness of vaccination against COVID-19 among people who caught the virus and those who did not.
The study found that anyone who had previously tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 infection did not receive additional benefits from the vaccine, suggesting that vaccines should be given priority for people who did not become infected.
The clinic says this study gives an idea of how the immune system protects the body after a COVID-19 infection is confirmed.
In a study of 52,238 staff at the Cleveland clinic, the clinic said that “no frequency of SARS-CoV-2 infection was observed in previously infected participants with or
without vaccination. “
The clinic still recommends that anyone who may receive the vaccine do so.
The Cleveland clinic told FOX 8: “We don’t know how long the immune system will protect against reinfection or protect against variants. We still recommend that those who qualify receive the vaccine. “
The statement went on to say: “These data may guide vaccination efforts if there is a shortage of vaccines and in areas where vaccine supply is limited.”
