Data from Germany’s Robert Koch Institute (RKI) show that fully vaccinated (2 doses + booster) are getting sick more than unvaccinated people.
Statistics expert Prof. Stefan Homburg here tweeted a chart comparing the number of illnesses for base vaccinated, boostered and unvaccinated:
Clearly, more fully vaccinated are getting sick with COVID than the unvaccinated.
“According to the RKI, vaccinated and even more so boostered people are more likely to contract Covid-19 than unvaccinated people!,” tweets prof. Homburg. “Because most caregivers are aged 18-59, their #vaccination requirement should be lifted or even banned.”
Experts critical of booster shots
Meanwhile the online Berliner Zeitung here reports experts are taking “a critical view of fourth Corona vaccination.”
“If you’re honest,” says Christoph Neumann-Haefelin, “it’s not a realistic goal to want to achieve complete protection by constantly boosting.” Instead, the head of the Translational Viral Immunology Group at the University Medical Center Freiburg recommends focusing on protection against severe disease. “When a person is infected, the T cells can ensure a mild course.” Just those cells in the bone marrow.
“In the end, the cells responsible for the immune response migrate to the bone marrow, where they survive in their niches for a lifetime,” reports the Berliner Zeiting.
“This process takes at least half a year,” Berlin Professor Andreas Radbruch explains. That’s at least how long you should wait with a booster vaccination, so as not to interrupt the maturation process, otherwise, “You’ll have more antibodies, but worse ones.”
