The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published a new article this past weekend where they said those who have recovered from COVID-19 and have not been vaccinated were 2.34 times more likely to be reinfected than those who were fully vaccinated.
The study surveyed the risk of reinfection to COVID-19 in hundreds of Kentucky residents. Those who tested positive for COVID last year in 2020 were examined in May and June to see how great the risk of reinfection was. “If you have had COVID-19 before, please still get vaccinated,” CDC director Rochelle Walensky said in a statement.
Unfortunately, the study did not examine the severity of the reinfections, and the authors noted that there are still many unknown factors such as how long natural immunity to the virus lasts. As the Delta variant continues to make its rounds, many vaccinated individuals are also getting infected. Despite this, many believe that vaccination against COVID-19 is the best way to stop the spread of the newest variant.
“Voices from across the political spectrum pointed to the success of the vaccines in preventing COVID-19 related hospitalizations and deaths. Left-rated voices were more likely to mention the Biden administration’s push to increase vaccinations amid the spread of the Delta variant,” AllSides reported.
