According to some scientists, people who have been infected with covid-19 and have been free of the virus should still plan for a new coronal vaccine.
"They'll be asked to line up and get vaccinated," Dr. William Schaffner, a professor of infectious diseases at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, told health and medical news website HealthDay. "There won't be any difference, in part because we don't think there will be adverse events, and vaccine protection may actually be longer lasting and longer lasting than the protection you get from natural infections."
"With the four seasonal beta coronaviruses circulating and causing all the upper respiratory infections you see in practice, these people lose immunity in a few months to a year or two," Dr Gregory Poland, director of the vaccine research team at Mayo Clinic, told HealthDay. "That's why people are affected by the common cold over and over again."
According to the priorities established in consultation with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and other government agencies, it has been determined that the first batch of vaccinations will be health care workers and the elderly.
