    Dr. Thomas, thank you for this update. I was especially encouraged to see that vaccination with natural immunity did not last long. My take away is that natural immunity for those of us who had the virus prior to vaccine (sarc) approval is dominant alone.

    Please consider an edit in the paragraph starting with, "The study period overlapped.." The lower protection from "vaccination" should be the assertion.

      They found that immunity waned significantly in all groups after a few months. If you were infected before the vaccine came out chances are you have few antibodies left. You also missed the part about boosters restoring immunity.

        The numbers cited are more favorable for the recovered than for the double-vaccinated, particularly after several months.  And there's this ... "When only severe cases were analyzed, the number among the vaccinated was the highest."

        Heather, please read about what T and B cells are. Then read about the limited T and B cell production from vaccines. Also, the increased protection of vaccine in a recovered person according to this article lasts just a few months, and our body's immune system already has antibodies, T and B cells against the spike protein so the vaccine is redundant..
        Finally, there are many published medical papers showing natural immunity lasts past 10 months due to T and B cells. Many conclude based on the T and B cell production that natural immunity is likely to last many years if not a lifetime.
