PEOPLE WHO HAVE ALREADY HAD COVID 19 NEED ONLY ONE SHOT TO PROTECT AGAINST FUTURE RECURRENCES

People who were already infected with the SARS COV 2 virus most likely require only one shot prevent recurring infections according to a new report in Science News that was based on a study of health care workers who were used as guinea pigs.


In the study, some vaccinated health care workers had already had COVID 19 at least 8 months prior to receiving the shot.


The researchers said that the individuals did not need to show symptoms during their infection in order to benefit from the single shot. The study found their anti covid anti bodies increased by more than 500%, higher than in people who never had COVID 19. That is why those who have not had the virus yet require two shots instead of just one.


According to the authors, who published the full study in the March 1 edition of JAMA, at least 9% of Americans can safely be moved to end of the line or given just one shot which will free up more vaccines for those who have a greater need for them.


The Whittier Area remains the Green Zone for COVID 19 for the 3rd day in a row. We just need it to stay that way for ten more days to be sure that Whittier truly is in the clear.
