CDC Releases COVID19 Reports Aimed to ‘Destroy’ Right-Wing Conspiracies

Contrary to the false claims from right-wing extremists that “natural immunity” is more powerful and “better” than the coronavirus vaccines, the CDC released a report finding those who are unvaccinated and contracted COVID-19 are five times more likely to be re-infected than those who are fully vaccinated.

The finding was published in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, examining records of adults hospitalized with COVID-19 symptoms in the agency’s “VISION Network” of hospitals spanning nine states.

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES – 2021/08/23: People register to receive a shot of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine at a mobile vaccination site in Orlando on the day the FDA gave its approval of the drug for persons under 16 years of age and older.

The study’s authors said their findings showed “vaccine-induced immunity was more protective than infection-induced immunity” among patients who had their first bout of the disease or were vaccinated three to six months earlier. “We now have additional evidence that reaffirms the importance of COVID-19 vaccines, even if you have had prior infection. This study adds more to the body of knowledge demonstrating the protection of vaccines against severe disease from COVID-19,” CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said in a statement.

Protection from Moderna’s vaccine “appeared to be higher” than for Pfizer’s vaccine, the CDC study’s authors noted. The boost in protection from vaccination also “trended higher” among seniors, compared to adults under 65 years old. The analysis did not include adults who received Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine, who are currently recommended to receive a booster shot at least two months after they were first vaccinated.

The CDC study “focused on the early protection from infection-induced and vaccine-induced immunity, though it is possible that estimates could be affected by time. Understanding infection-induced and vaccine-induced immunity over time is important, particularly for future studies to consider,” the authors said.
