People Who Had COVID-19 and Get Vaccinated Have “Hybrid Immunity”

Recent research shows that individuals who had COVID-19 and later received the first dose of an mRNA vaccine form exceptional immunity against a range of variants of SARS-CoV-2. These people can also have protection against related viruses able to migrate from animals to people.People Who Had COVID-19 and Get Vaccinated Have “Hybrid Immunity”

A team of scientists conducted several studies of “hybrid immunity” at Rockefeller University in New York. The researchers also found that in people who have never had COVID-19, a booster shot of a COVID-19 vaccine may also provide hybrid immunity against variants of SARS-CoV-2 and similar viruses.

Co-author of the study, the virologist Prof. Paul Bieniasz, says: “While SARS-CoV-2 infection itself is thought to be quite short-lived, it is likely that some viral proteins and possibly even some infected cells persist, perhaps even for months, and this gives the immune system the chance to optimize and diversify its antibodies to recognize a wide range of variants. Vaccination then boosts the levels of these antibodies.” He also adds: “One could reasonably predict that these individuals would be quite well-protected against most, and perhaps all, of the SARS-CoV-2 variants that we are likely to see in the foreseeable future.”
