Covid Risk More Than Doubles 90 Days After 2nd Pfizer Jab, Israeli Study Find

The study involved 80,000 adults who had been vaccinated with the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.

Researchers from the Leumit Health Services in Israel and the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) found that the virus risk more than doubled and continued to increase as far as six months out.

They now say that booster shots are needed in order to sustain long-term protection from covid.

The Mail Online reports: What’s more,the percentage of tests coming back positive for COVID-19 quadrupled from 2.4 percent at least 90 days later to 10.6 percent at least 150 days later.

The finding add more evidence that, while the Pfizer vaccines provides strong protection in the initial weeks, booster shots are likely needed to sustain long-term protection from Covid.

Israel was one of the first countries to roll out use of Pfizer’s Covid vaccine in December 2020 and the U.S. was not far behind.

The Middle Eastern country experienced a resurgence in cases in September while infections are creeping up now in the U.S.

This has led many experts to fear that immunity from the standard two-dose regimen wanes over time.

Researchers say determining the risk of infection as more time elapses since dose two can lead to important information about the optimal timing of a third dose.

For the study, published in The BMJ, the team looked at the electronic health records of 80,057 adults in Israel.

All of the adults were fully vaccinated with the Pfizer shot and had no history of a prior COVID-19 infection.

    • Of course there is a lot of clinical trial evidence showing how effective a third shot is.

      Unless they take 100,000 people and give them clot shots, 1,2, and 3, and then deliberately infect them with Covid-19, any trial evidence is meaningless.

      But, how stupid of me, that is what they ARE doing….. on the World’s population.

      From one of the comments there, is what has changed, the partnership of government with Companies. A form of Crony Capitalism?

      When they changed Corporate Law, in the 80s, I think it was, from reading that companies were only Allowed to make”a fair and reasonable profit “into companies were required” to MAXIMISE profits “then fascism took over and criminality and corruption, lies and deceits be came the Morality.
      .
      Now there are only a few good individuals left on the planet. Very few too.
      .
      All employees of every company /corporation is compelled to act corriptly to be law abiding and every level of giverent is ruled by Corporate Law as well as all private corporations Banking Finamce Health Hospitals Law Education, everything.
      .
      All under the Moral Authority for rule of law.
      With all in “sic”
