After-Dosing Covid Infectivity Rates

[NOTE: See important updates at bottom of article.]

Below, is a very interesting presentation by John Campbell, Ph.D. (Nursing), relative to infection rates after the Pfizer dose has been administered.

It appears the longer the time between the two doses of the Pfizer medication, the greater the longevity of protection. Dr. Campbell does a comparative of Israel where the length of time between the two doses was two weeks (also mostly true of the US), matched with The UK where the length of time between the two doses has been eight to 11 weeks. It turns out the Brits are getting greater protection from infection.

Importantly, however, the reality is both Israel and the UK show hospitalization rates and death rates are markedly subdued as a result of both dosing procedures. The essential problem is more a matter of infectivity.

This is not good news for those who are elderly and/or who have other complicating medical factors.

What also seems troubling is the data potentially shows that continual dosing might be required over a greater length of time (years maybe?) in order to thoroughly beat back the Covid virus. It’s also noteworthy that the current rapidity of rates of infection are resulting from the Delta variant, which now has become dominant. Moreover, the nagging question: Might a future variant become even worse?

We are not out of the woods!

Best strategy is to help get others vaccinated as quickly as possible. The quicker we reduce rates of infectivity, the sooner we can stop dosing ourselves … and again live normal lives.

Hopefully, the ultimate lesson we learn from Covid is the clear need for a health care system free for all, and that all governments must have pandemic preventative and response measures always in place.

Seriously, now — get vaccinated!
