"Although the epidemiology of COVID-19 might change as new variants emerge, vaccination remains the safest strategy for averting future SARS-CoV-2 infections, hospitalizations, long-term sequelae, and death," the researchers wrote.Researchers analyzed the risk of Covid-19 infection and hospitalization among four groups of individuals: vaccinated with and without prior infection and unvaccinated with and without prior infection. The study case data from about 1.1 million cases in California and New York between the end of May and mid-November 2021. Hospitalization data was available from California only. Overall, Covid-19 case and hospitalization rates were highest among unvaccinated people who did not have a previous diagnosis. Omicron might mark the end of Covid-19's pandemic phase -- unless a certain scenario happens, Fauci saysAt first, those with a prior infection had higher case rates than those who were vaccinated with no history of prior infection. As the Delta variant became predominant in the US in later months, this shifted and people who survived a previous infection had lower case rates than those who were vaccinated alone, according to the study.

Before the Delta variant, Covid-19 vaccination resulted in better protection against a subsequent infection than surviving a previous infection.

Keep studying 📚 Medicare has gone up 14% for seniors this year and covid tests are not paid by medicare..seriously .PresidentBiden 😂😂😂… Took this long for a study to come out but they been talking about this since nearly the beginning? I’m sorry, can you repeat that part about prior infection AUGUST 2021 ALREADY STARTED, THE DESCENT! OF COVID-19. CHRISTMAS ALERT!! 2021. FEBRUARY 2022 PROPULSION! STUNNING OF A REAL AND EFFECTIVE DESCENT!! OF COVID-19, ALL OVER THE PLANET, ON A GLOBAL LEVEL.

Yes because the CDC has been reliable and creditable since the beginning. Has CNN decided to start posting the truth in order to increase ratings Also, to add validity please reference studies from reliable sources vs CDC studies.

Vaccinated have to depend on vaccine from now on.. At first the narrative was that u can’t catch or spread the virus once vaccinated , but guess we will pretend like those clips from the CDC and Fauci don’t exist 💯 For God's sake get the vaccine or feel the wrath of Delta & Omicron'.

sure it does 🙄 Oh a CDC study. Must be true 🤔 latimes hiltzikm 2020: Says vaccines will kill people 2022: Encourages mocking the deaths of unvaccinated people В России тоже самое поют. just got busted again for fake news. The story of the Supreme Court just not wearing a mask is false and CNN and Acosta and brianstelter wonder why they have zero credibility left. I wonder if they will apologize the answer is no because nobody holds them responsible

Against omicron yes (booster). Against delta, infection offers marginally better protection. Take your pick then. Let's start saving our hospital beds for the people who really need them like heart patients and critically ill,let the COVID deniars go home and suffer.

CDC encourages N95, KN95 masks to stop COVID-19 spread amid omicron surgeN95 or KN95 masks are being recommended by the CDC over cloth masks to ward off the omicron variant. Here are the benefits and when you should wear one. Surgical earloop masks of 2 or 3 ply are quite good at stopping droplets and aerosols from being emitted from the respiratory system. Not as good as n95 but much cheaper and more available. It took them damn near two years to figure this out? What happened to reporting deaths? Only infections? If we are down to less than 1% death rate per 100,000 in population, then let's move the fuck on! At this point it's a bad cold. So sick of this!

CDC recommends schools cancel football, band during COVID-19 surgeThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been chastised by some health experts for advising that schools cancel some sports and activities. So are they wanting to cancel all school classes was well If we can’t attend school in person, we shouldn’t be holding extracurricular activities. Prioritize academics. The CDC recommends all comrades remain home, muzzled, jobless but continue paying taxes.

CDC recommends schools cancel football, band due to COVID-19 surgeSome health experts are criticizing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for suggesting schools cancel some sports and activities. The CDC recently released guidance advising schools to cancel high-risk sports and extra-curricular activities or hold them virtually due to a spike in COVID-19 cases. This includes football, wrestling and band. Dr. You realize other states aren't living like this right?! No. Football season is over. That’s how detached from reality they are. Kids should be in their normal activities music, drama, sports should all be in full swing. Yes.

CDC warns against travel to 22 destinations over Covid-19CDC advises against travel to 22 nations and territories due to a rising number of Covid-19 cases, including for Israel, Australia, Egypt, Albania, Argentina and Uruguay.

Calif. medical workers fight to bridge the Latino COVID-19 vaccination gap Health care workers in California’s predominantly Latino neighborhoods are fighting to bridge the COVID-19 vaccination gap in their community. Meanwhile, concerns grow over the continued low vaccination rates among Latinos in the state.

(CNN)Both vaccination and prior infection help protect against new Covid-19 infections, but vaccination protects against hospitalization significantly more than natural immunity from prior infection alone, according to a study published Wednesday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Throughout the period of the study, risk of Covid-19 hospitalization was significantly higher among unvaccinated people with no previous Covid-19 diagnosis than any other group. "Together, the totality of the evidence suggests really that both vaccination and having survived Covid each provide protection against subsequent reinfection, infection and hospitalization," said Dr. Eli Rosenberg, New York State Deputy Director for Science."Having Covid the first time carries with it significant risks, and becoming vaccinated and staying up-to-date with boosters really is the only safe choice for preventing COVID infection and severe disease."Experts also noted that characteristics of variants change, including how well they effect immunity from prior infections. The CDC said in a statement it will publish additional data on Covid-19 vaccines and boosters against the dominant Omicron variant later this week."The data clearly shows that vaccination provides the safest protection against COVID-19 and additional protection for individuals who have had a prior infection. In addition, it shows that people who remain unvaccinated are at the greatest risk of hospitalization and death," said Dr. Erica Pan, state epidemiologist for the California Department of Public Health, said in a statement."Outside of this study, recent data on the highly contagious Omicron variant shows that getting a booster provides significant additional protection against infection, hospitalization and death."
