Recovered COVID-19 patients must be vaccinated to reduce risk of getting infected again

COVID-19 patients, who have recovered from the disease after completing 14-days of treatment or isolation, may get infected again and, therefore, must be vaccinated, said the director-general of Thailand’s Disease Control Department, Dr. Opart Karnkawinpong, today (Saturday).

 

He said that recovered patients are not considered “carriers” of the disease, but are rehabilitating, can work as normal and there is no need to be isolated.

 

He warned, however, that there is a chance that they could get re-infected, which usually happens some 3 months after initial recovery, if they do not follow basic safety measures, such as wearing face masks all the time while outdoors, avoiding close contact with the other people, observing social distancing or regularly washing their hands with soap or sanitizer gel.

I am truly confused by this man

I understood that vaccines did not stop you getting covid only helped your body to fight it (by the body's own defenses)

Is this man speaking twaddle or do I need educating?

And this is the Director General ................. amazing Thailand!

Strange.

Many, many countries in the world are recognizing recovery. With regard to travel restrictions, these are on an equal footing with vaccinated persons. Ultimately, the body of a recovered person has mastered a C19 infection due to its own defenses. Thailand doesn't have enough vaccines at all. Not even in the next 3 months.

 

....must be vaccinated, 

Ridiculous what is written there from this General, in view of the acute challenges Thailand is currently facing. Analogy: The Titanic goes under and he takes care of emptying the ashtrays on board.

These "professionals" are starting to sound very "unprofessional" IMO, natural infection is better than vaccination according to the science we hear, i.e. if you survive it your antibodies will be around for at least a decade, i.e. if you look at the Japanese study on Sars1 survivors which is 80% similar to Sars2. We also hear getting vaccinated after being infected increases your antibodies, but what is the point if you have enough antibodies to protect you, oh, we don't want you to get infected and spread it again, um, has anybody told these people that the vaccines also spread the virus when infected.

 

You can't stamp this virus out. It is here to stay, so we have to deal with it as we have with other viruses, they are not alive and will go dormant.

 

I can't help but smell a rat here, what is really going on, are we ALL to get vaccinated with these vaccines every year into the future, maybe I should have purchased shares into these big pharma's.

 

This is starting to become a control game in my opinion, vaccinate the whole world with vaccines that are supposed to keep you out of hospital, ugly.

so it should be seniors with underlying. But they are not.

 

surely, those recovered are protected for at least 3 month. Mentioning them at the end of the year makes sense, when already everybody in target population had at least one jab.

 

"they could get re-infected, which usually happens some 3 months after initial recovery"

that is false. Antibodies decrease over time, the risk is not in the 3rd month after infection and in that window time, but much later.

Everybody must get vaccinated, with quality vaccines. The delta variant is so aggressive that herd immunity will not be actual before around 90% of the population is quality vaccinated.

 

They can not keep the Delta variant down with social distancing etc, when it is lao kao time, the thais forget every thing about social distancing etc.

Thanks Dr. Opart for your valuable piece of info!

 

Tell you what, vaccinate everyone and the issue will be solved... Easy, ain't it?

Lots of benefits from getting the vaccine after you recovered from covid 19.

 

Even people who have recovered from COVID-19 are urged to get vaccinated, especially as the extra-contagious delta variant surges — and a new study shows survivors who ignored that advice were more than twice as likely to get reinfected.

 

It’s what virologist Shane Crotty of California’s La Jolla Institute for Immunology calls “hybrid immunity.”

Vaccinated survivors “can make antibodies that can recognize all kinds of variants even if you were never exposed to the variant,” Crotty said. “It’s pretty sweet.”

Many people who have been infected with SARS-CoV-2 will probably make antibodies against the virus for most of their lives. So suggest researchers who have identified long-lived antibody-producing cells in the bone marrow of people who have recovered from COVID-191.

The study provides evidence that immunity triggered by SARS-CoV-2 infection will be extraordinarily long-lasting. Adding to the good news, “the implications are that vaccines will have the same durable effect”, says Menno van Zelm, an immunologist at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia ... https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-021-01442-9

So having had Covid-19 does not alert your immune system..?

In that case it's no use to have a certificate that one have already been infected by the virus and recovered, which so far have been accepted as 6 to 12 month immunity in level with vaccination - makes me wonder how Covid-vaccination works...🤔

It’s no wonder that people are suspicious that they are not getting the real story/being sold a bill of goods. It started for me when they wanted to vaccinate pregnant women and children with experimental vaccines.

The length of time to being vulnerable depends on several factors: age/strength of a person's immune system, degree of exposure day-to-day, novelty and infectiousness of the variant. Exposure can be mitigated by wearing a mask in the presence of people who may be infectious. Vaccination (even a single jab of mRNA) after infection confers excellent immunity.
