Another study from Qatar has confirmed that natural immunity offers superior protection against reinfection and severe disease compared to vaccine-induced immunity. The study was published last July 7, 2022, in medRxiv as a pre-print [This is a different from Qatar Study Shows Naturally Immune People at Little Risk of Reinfection].
According to the report, the “effectiveness of primary infection against severe, critical, or fatal COVID-19 reinfections was 97.3%…irrespective of the variant of primary infection or reinfection, and with no evidence for waning.
The study notes that protection against reinfection wanes and diminishes within a few years which could be accelerated by viral immune evasion.
Editor’s Note: Compared to the durability of natural immunity, vaccine-induced immunity is nothing. [That vaccine-induced immunity is waning is now a scientific consensus, read New CDC Study Shows mRNA Vaccine Protection Against COVID-19 Is Waning, Singapore Overtakes 2020 Record Despite High Vaccination Rate, Experts Admit Surge due to Waning Protection from Vaccine, COVID Vaccines Efficacy Wanes Thus Public is Encouraged to Get Booster Shots].
We also know that vaccine efficacy against severe disease is now very low [see NEJM Study Shows Vaccines Offers No Significant Advantage Compared To Natural Immunity].
So, why take the boosters?
