According to studies, people who are both fully vaccinated against coronavirus and infected have the most robust protection against coronavirus.
According to a study published in the medical journal The Lancet Infectious Diseases, this “hybrid immunity” provides up to 20 months of high protection against re-infection. It is based on data from Sweden but does not yet refer to the Omikron variant.
The 20-month “excellent protection” from vaccination and infection is “far better than we would expect for the original two-dose vaccination regimen,” said Paul Hunter, professor of medicine at the University of East Anglia. He was not involved in the study.
In another study from Brazil published in the journal, researchers found that vaccines “have been shown to provide significant additional protection for individuals with prior covid-19 infection.” The study analyzed health data from more than 200,000 people in 2020 and 2021 in Brazil, which has the second-highest covid-19 death rate in the world.
