In this March 29, 2022 article for MedPage Today, Lei Lei Wu reports on a new study published by the Lancet Child and Adolescent Health showing that COVID reinfection among children is rare at less than 0.5%.
According to the study, reinfection among children was three times lower compared to adults. Reinfection was highest among adolescents aged 12 to 16 (0.49%), followed by children aged 5 to 11 years (0.24%) and children younger than 5 (0.18%).
The study also showed that reinfection was not associated with severe outcomes as most reinfected children were asymptomatic.
Editor’s Note: The findings of this research are even more relevant considering the fact that most children do not contract COVID and most who do are only mildly symptomatic [see Updated IFR for COVID Confirms 99.9987% Survival for Under-20’s, CDC updates planning scenarios, shows IFR lower than flu.

This article is a clear testament to the strong COVID immunity children have [see Study shows babies and toddlers generates stronger immune response against COVID than adults, No Need for Vaccines: Children’s Immune Systems Primed and Ready for SARS-CoV-2, Are COVID-Recovered Unvaccinated Children at Risk of Reinfection?].
It is also proof that young children do not need the COVID shot, which can actually compromise the health of their immune system [see Are COVID Vaccines Causing AIDS-Like Illness by Destroying Immune Function?, PfizerGate Scandal: The Worldwide Cover-up of Data to Hide Covid-19 Vaccines Cause VAIDS, New Research Discovered HIV Variant Can Cause Patients To Develop AIDS Twice As Fast].
