HOW LONG SHOULD YOU WAIT TO GET VACCINATED AFTER YOU HAVE HAD COVID TREATED WITH IV ANTIBODIES?
ANSWER: 90 DAYS according to the most expert clinician I know. The following article backs this up.
”Unvaccinated Austrians ages 12 and older awoke on Monday morning confined to their homes for all but essential activities, as one of the strictest coronavirus lockdowns in Europe went into effect to battle a surge in infections.”
”Under new rules announced by the government on Sunday, adults and minors 12 and older who have not been vaccinated or recovered from a coronavirus infection cannot go outside except to buy groceries, seek medical care or travel to school or work. They are the toughest of a new wave of restrictions across Europe, as governments try to contain near-record numbers of cases….[Only] About 65 percent of Austria’s 8.9 million people are vaccinated, one of the lowest rates in western Europe... Over the past two weeks, average daily cases have risen by 134 percent to nearly 11,000, the highest since the pandemic began.
(J. Harris: As we sit here in Harrison County with a vaccination rate of 36% for all ages and only 65% vaccineion rate for over 65 years of age, how can we not suffer a 4th spike locally — just like in Austria and The UK are doing? We’ve followed them since the Pandemic began. With new variants plus with cold weather and holidays approaching, crowds indoors will increase. In addition, once the unvaccinated become carriers, the vaccinated can expect some breakthrough infections, especially in the lame, halt, and infirm. We are fortunate that some of the children. and youth are vaccinated so asymptomatic carriers will be less frequent. We are on a course to overloading our hospitals and health care workers and economy. All I know to do personally is to avoid the unvaccinated and to encourage everyone I can influence to get vaccinated. If this were Paralytic Polio vaccinations would come easily.)
(J. Harris: This is a very reassuring article for folks who are both fairly healthy and vaccinated. It is worth reading.)
”… As there were no deaths among the 41 496 individuals who received two doses of mRNA-1273 (Moderna) vaccine during the study period, they were not further considered in this analysis….230 (97%) individuals had at least one cause of death listed in addition to COVID-19.The most common non-COVID-19 causes of death were chronic heart disease, chronic kidney disease, diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and atrial fibrillation…Viral sequencing data were available for 106 deaths. Five individuals died with the alpha variant of concern (VOC), and 101 individuals died with the delta VOC. Sequencing data were not available for 130 deaths…
In summary, COVID-19-related deaths were extremely uncommon in those fully vaccinated with either BNT162b2 or ChAdOx1 nCoV-19. Most individuals who died after two doses of COVID-19 vaccine were older than 75 years and had multiple comorbidities. These results are similar to the risk profile for mortality in unvaccinated individuals with COVID-19 infection…and in vaccinated individuals who have received one dose of vaccine.5 Risk of COVID-19-related death is therefore not completely eliminated when fully vaccinated; the results of this study suggest the importance of continued caution and non-pharmaceutical interventions, in particular for older adults with multiple comorbidities.
