Almost 100% of people tested positive for antibodies 14 or more days after their second Covid-19 vaccine dose, an English study has found.More than 207,337 participants in England took part in the home surveillance study for Covid-19 antibodies between May 12 and May 25.
Participants tested themselves at home using a finger prick test 14 days after their second dose of either the Pfizer/BioNTech or the AstraZeneca vaccine as part of a study being conducted by Imperial College London and Ipsos MORI.The researchers tested the blood for antibodies specifically generated by the vaccines – antibodies that researchers believe protect people against the worst effects of the virus. It’s a different test from the commercial tests used to detect evidence of past coronavirus infection. headtopics.com
"Antibodies play an important role in protecting against future illness,” Paul Elliott, director of the testing program at Imperial’s School of Public Health, said in a statement released by the UK Department of Health."So it's very encouraging to see a greater than four-fold increase in antibody prevalence since our last findings in January, highlighting the impact of the vaccination program. More importantly, our findings also reinforce the need to get fully vaccinated to protect yourself and those around you."
Some context:England is scheduled to lift all restrictions on social contact on Monday despite a rise in cases. On Thursday, 48,553 new cases and 63 Covid-related deaths were reported across the UK, according to government figures.Following one dose of either vaccine, the proportion of people testing positive for antibodies peaked at four to five weeks after first dose and then started to decline before rising substantially in those who had a second dose, according to the news release.
On Wednesday, the government announced more than two in three adults in the UK have now received both doses of a Covid-19 vaccine. Read more: CNN Breaking News »

And you can try to catch the covid with your mouth too Businesses in LA county will now choose whether they'd like to follow this requirement or not. Vote with your pocket book folks. Support the businesses that align with you. MarilynRussell So what’s the point of getting vaccinated? THE NATION SHOULD reinstate Mask Mandate because of this new strain on COVID
Wear a gd mask if you want to. If you’re not vaccinated and get sick that is your problem and your choice. Do NOT make it my responsibility to make sure you stay healthy by wearing a mask. You are making Alex Jones of Infowars sound like a prophet even though you pretend you don't believe him. He predicted this a long time ago LOL
You will see soon we are all going to died...with the third generation of corona virus. Still not the angel of death . . . just Cold & Flu. We are not out of the woods. Please take precautions and get vaccinated. It’s a selfless dead. This was bound to happen. I think 🤔 so. wearer's Here we go again just the beginning
Here's another reason to get the Covid-19 vaccine: It may prevent long Covid.It is theoretically possible for a fully vaccinated person to get long Covid. But doctors contend that it doesn't appear to be a significant risk.
So people wear masks and still people get Sick. People get vaccinated and they still get covid. Can someone explain to me how we are protected 👍 GOOD IDEA Good luck enforcing that Vaccinations or not..im still wearing my mask....I've learned to accessorize .. stay safe I think we should've jus kept the the mask law in order am we would be almost rid of this horrible covid we opened up an now the numbers are going up hello .. doesn't take a genius to figure it out
Why do ppl assume, if you have the vaccine you can't get covid? 🤷🏼♀️ Nothing is foolproof, but it's foolish not to try everything to get rid of it. I dont understand the whining about masks. The medical field wear them & we wouldn't want them not to. I am fully vaccinated & if required to wear them, I will. Not even a sniffle this year-masks!
Lmao Doubt any minimum wage employee is gonna bother enforcing. Y’all were too hype to take off y’all masks anyway. Just cuz they say we don’t have to wear doesn’t mean DONT wear them. Don’t be a weirdo “anti-masker” (god I hate that word💀)
India reports 38,792 new COVID-19 cases in the last 24 hoursIndia on Wednesday reported 38,792 new COVID-19 cases in the last 24 hours, data from health ministry showed, with daily deaths rising by 624. Isn’t that on a par with the UK?
Here's your 'rise'... Rest assured, I’ll never set foot in LA I’m fully vaccinated, and this game of mask whack a mole needs to end NOW!! Vaccine no good? roseanne mask advocate comeback Hahahahahahahahahaha Be Afraid Idiots blaming anti-vaxers & masks when capitalism forced worldwide & national spread due to refusal to shut down & reopening too early. CapitalismKills
Common sense still has a place. Mask mandates should not be lifted anywhere until everyone has been vaccinated. Don’t hold your breath tho RecallGavinNewsom
Delta variant drove COVID-19 cases higher across the globe last week — including in the U.S.The highly transmissible delta variant of COVID-19, now present in 111 countries, drove cases higher across the globe in the past week, including in the U.S., where the curve is rising again after months of declines. Propaganda Fear fear and more bullshit don’t believe the lies from the media stay informed, truth is coming out!
Get vaccinated or face the consequences, it should not be the government's job to punish people who got vaccinated just because others choose not to, they know the risks. This SHOULD tell you this is completely unwarranted and unscientific. I live in LA and am ashamed of our city. No, no, no. We can't be going backwards here. The vaccine is widely available. It works. People getting sick are mostly unvaccinated & this is on them. This is terrifying to hear because I fear it sets a precedent for other cities to do the same. Let this go already and move on!
Hahahaha and soon they will lock down that shit state. Keep voting for democrats hahaha Lol it’s the vaxxed that actually BELIEVE they’re completely protected, won’t get it, etc but yet they have been catching it after being so called “vaxxed”. 😂. For those unable to identify it; the following is sarcasm. Just like face masks and vaccines, dear belts and air bags don’t work. Thousands of people die each year in auto accidents even when wearing sear belts and in autos with air bags! Besides the % of people who die is low!
California. A perpetual shitshow. Ridiculous!!! Why was it lifted in the first place... Like it shouldn't have been...
Vietnam approves Johnson & Johnson's COVID-19 vaccine as daily cases hit recordVietnam on Thursday approved Johnson & Johnson's (JNJ.N) Janssen COVID-19 vaccine on Thursday for emergency use, as the country tries to boost supplies at a time of record numbers of new infections.
Back to this lifeinsouthpark Anti-vaxxers in my county must be proud of themselves. What we forget is the fact that many folks who still refuse to get / take the vaccine. What ever may be their perceptions, but they eventually become the risk factors for everyone else. Laughs in Florida Great job LA county!
Lmao Hahahahahahaha How about a no gun mandate or a no using the sidewalk as a toilet mandate? Really? So now if you get vaccinated that’s not approved, you have to wear a mask? Why get vaccinated 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂FtheWest

It sure is great to live in a non communist state. Bahahahahahahahaha zjlaing Fuck off. Open up. Look at Texas Facts are simple the ones complaining about wearing mask and the vaccines are the reason we have to wear mask again. This bullshit sits clearly on your shoulders. Fuck Cali i refuse to be like London
The mindless following the blind. MasaeAnela , Izzie_Kikue , I'm not sure if you're in this general area, just a heads up in case it does apply. 👍 Addicted to the drama…. Laggin24x This is just plain stupid. Covid is basically over. How long are you going to keep this going. At some point we have to get back to normal lives
U.S. COVID-19 Cases Rising Again, Doubling Over Three WeeksConfirmed infections have increased over the last two weeks in all but two states. horrible Yea, even with this so called vaccine. Most likely the vaccinated giving it to the vaccinated
Oh boy! Here we go. Fox News should be shut down and charged with Murder! The Delta variant is deadly. Fox should warn people! Go to The Fox News website and Covid is the 45th story addressed! Why are the hiding the truth? ABC, CBS, NpR, CNN all have it in the top 3. Coincidence or contributing to can we just put a wall up around the entire state of California. The rest of the country would appreciate it
Smart move! Mutations, non-vaccinations. Bound to happen. Stupid is stupid does Keep in mind some people (such as myself) are long haulers and still not stable enough to receive the vaccine. I tested positive July 23,2020 and am still in an out of the hospital with encephalitis, guillain barre syndrome, an enlarged heart, dangerously high BP ETC.
BWAHAHAHAHA LA is a terrible place to live. WOW, I didn’t see this coming; Oh, Yes I Did! As long as there are people who refuse, won’t, or can’t decide to get vaccinated, there will be a place for the virus to go. The damn virus wants to live & to do that it must kill the unvaccinated. GET VACCINATED! KILL IT FIRST!
If you don’t want to be sick stay home. You do realize your letting a stranger control your life. Not okay for me. I don’t want to control what you think or do so do the same. Please you can’t control illness or death with a piece of paper over your face Bravo ! the entire country needs to do the same. I was vaccinated in Jan/Feb 2021. I live in Orlando.Last Saturday I tested positive for coronavirus and have been sick and quarantined since. The virus is out there .. don’t think u won’t get it even vaccinated. Please Mask up !
This back & forth will NEVER stop UNTIL someone has the balls to DO THE RIGHT THING........do the obvious! I don’t have a PhD but even I could’ve told you one month ago the CDC’s inane decision to lift the mask mandate literally WHILE Delta was ravaging India was the epitome of dumbass but what do I know🤷♀️
Pretty simple no vaccine not health care if u get sick. Pretty dam simple. Don’t punish those who did what they were supposed to. Tuck off Getting vaccinated is NOT a surrender of your liberty, It's an affirmation of , Responsibility, Care and love for others. Be smart, Be safe, Get vaccinated They were imprisoned unjustly because they were Muslims and accused them of terrorism💔
