In this study, they looked at more people than they did for the vax trials. In this study, by the Cleveland Clinic, they looked at almost 53,000 people. In the trials, it was around 31,000 for Moderna.
This article is informative and proves to me what I and many others already know. Even some in this study who had the vax got sick anyway but those with prior infection had a near zero re-infection rate.
A new study suggests the COVID-19 vaccines offer previously infected patients with no greater immunity than they already have, a claim frequently made by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., an ophthalmologist.
Sen. Paul hailed the findings Tuesday on Twitter:
“Great news! Cleveland clinic study of 52,238 employees shows unvaccinated people who have had COVID 19 have no difference in re-infection rate than people who had COVID 19 and who took the vaccine.”
“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 concluded.
