you cannot go back to a time before there even was a vaccine and then claim that reinfections now in people who got covid are higher than reinfections with the vaccine. time is a variable in the equation.
It’s not relevant. It’s controlled for because both groups were treated the same.
In each case, they looked at those who caught COVID in 2020 and then either got vaxxed when the vax became available or didn’t get vaxxed. Then they checked who got reinfected when Delta started taking hold in May 2021.
As a matter of fact, what you are concerned about is WHAT THEY WERE TESTING FOR…did the vaccine re-energize the immune response of previously infected people?
I think Jay Jay is correct on this one if you read the study. They compared people who where originally infected at a certain time then if those people got reinfected and compared whether or not they got the vaccine.
no, you are quite wrong, it took people who got covid in 2020 and then after the antibodies from getting covid had worn off over 6 months later checked to see how many got covid again. then it took vaccinated people and checked how many of them, less than 6 months later. its garbage propaganda
“If you have had COVID-19 before, please still get vaccinated,” said Centers for Disease Control Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky in a statement released Friday. “This study shows you are twice as likely to get infected again if you are unvaccinated.”
How do they know a vaccinated person is not reinfected? They may be reinfected but asymptomatic.
Both "the vaccines + recovery"and “natural infection + recovery” mean the person is equipped to fight subsequent infections without death and possibly without symptoms. How do they arrive at the claimed reinfected figures? How do you test for "reinfection + recovery "?
After really studying this thread the conclusion I’ve come to, and feel free to correct me if I’m wrong, is wah-wah-wah, science is saying something again that I don’t like so I’m gonna call it a bunch of lies, propaganda, and poopy doo-doo!
Finally, this is a retrospective study design using data from a single state during a 2-month period; therefore, these findings cannot be used to infer causation. Additional prospective studies with larger populations are warranted to support these findings.
