Dr. John Campbell breaks down an Israeli study published in the Oxford Academic medical journal showing that immunity conferred from a COVID infection is more robust than vaccine-induced immunity.
He talks about waning immunity from the vaccine and reveals just how much better natural immunity is compared to the mRNA shots, even when it comes to severe illness that requires hospitalization.
The study was done using the 2-dose Pfizer vaccine during the Delta wave of the SARS-Cov2 pandemic.
SARS-CoV-2-naive vaccinees had a 13.06-fold (95% confidence interval [CI], 8.08–21.11) increased risk for breakthrough infection with the Delta variant compared to unvaccinated.
Naturally acquired immunity confers stronger protection against infection and symptomatic disease caused by the Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2, compared to the BNT162b2 2-dose vaccine-indued immunity.
