Assessment of SARS-CoV-2 Reinfection 1 Year After Primary Infection in a Population in Lombardy, Italy
This cohort study examines the rate of SARS-CoV-2 reinfection among people in Lombardy, Italy, who previously recovered from COVID-19.
Immunity after getting COVID looks much more robust than initial fears. There is still a risk of reinvention...but the same goes for receiving the vaccine. If we are moving down this path of “proving immunity”, and we are also interested in science leading our decisions and not politics...titers or a documented diagnosis of COVID should suffice. With this study, there is not fantastic evidence that you are more immune or less capable of spreading the illness with the vaccine versus innate immunity. I still recommend that people should get vaccinated...but I also think that proving immunity is silly and if it’s going to be done, it should be based upon science.
