No Need to Vaccinate People Who’ve Previously Had Covid, Study Finds

There’s no need for people who’ve had the Covid-19 virus to get vaccinated, a new study from the Cleveland Clinic finds.

In the study published at MedRxiv, Cleveland Clinic researchers evaluated whether those who have not yet been infected by the virus should be prioritized to receive the vaccine.

Sampling 52,238 employees of the Cleveland Clinic Health System, researchers compared previously infected subjects who received the vaccine with previously infected subjects who had not received the vaccine, as well as two other control groups.

Explanation of “previously infected” analyzed as a time-independent covariate and “vaccinated” treated as a time-dependent covariate.

The study concluded that: “Individuals who have had SARS-CoV-2 infection are unlikely to benefit from COVID-19 vaccination, and vaccines can be safely prioritized to those who have not been infected before.”

The study also observed that those previously infected, whether vaccinated or not, did not get re-infected.

“Although the study did not directly estimate the duration of protection from natural infection, it was observed that previously infected participants remained protected against COVID-19 for at least 10 months after the symptom onset or a positive test result,” reports

The study’s findings will no doubt bolster the opinions of people who reject the vaccine because they’ve recently had Covid and recovered.

The justification was used recently by Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul (R), who publicly stated he wouldn’t be taking the vaccine because he already had Covid.

“I just made my own personal decision that I’m not getting vaccinated, because I’ve already had the disease, and I have natural immunity,” Paul said.

It remains to be seen if the Big Pharma medical establishment and its lapdog media cohorts will attempt to spin, debunk, or ignore the study.
