Senator Rand Paul recently took to Twitter to share a very important study.
It revealed that there was no difference in the rates of re-infection for people who took a COVID vaccine compared to those who did not.
Not a small difference.
None at all.
This does beg the question of why we’re getting vaccinated in the first place.
If so many people have been infected with COVID, survived without problems, and now won’t benefit from a vaccine, why vaccinate the whole population?
According to the study, “individuals with previous SARS-CoV-2 infection do not get additional benefits from vaccination, indicating that COVID-19 vaccines should be prioritized to individuals without prior infection,” Dr. Sanchari Sinha Dutta, Ph.D., writing for News Medical, said, providing a summary of the study.Breitbart News
Based on this, at the bare minimum vaccines should be targeted to a narrower subset of the population.
The study does say that for uninfected people, getting a vaccine reduces the risk of infection.
Notably, not one of the infections stemmed from previously infected individuals, whether they received the vaccine or not.
“With further statistical analysis, it was observed that the COVID-19 vaccination significantly reduced the risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection in previously uninfected participants but not in previously infected participants,” the article reads.Breitbart News
But what exactly is that risk?
This is the question that most needs answering, because the answer will determine the real importance of vaccination.
Some people don’t even show symptoms when they’ve had COVID, so it’s clearly not as severe as some in the liberal media have made out over the past year.
And if the disease itself is not as severe as the media have claimed, then we can hardly trust them on the subject of vaccination.
