    COVID-19 vaccines: medical concerns and recommendations

    This is a new thread continuing the discussion started in the now closed COVID VACCINE thread.

    Please limit discussion in this thread to medical concerns and recommendations related to COVID-19 vaccines. Literature citations and conclusions based on legitimate medical and/or scientific expertise are encouraged.

    There is another thread for discussion of political issues and concerns related to COVID-19 vaccines.

    My sister, a nurse, was asking about my current vaccine status in light of my many previous malaria infections. It seems that one of her unvaccinated co-workers got Covid, and that triggered a malaria attack.

    Now, a few years back, I had a case of food poisoning that triggered a malaria flare up, so yeah.

    Guess I have some reading to do, had no idea that was a thing. Sorry, brother.

    Grandpa had malaria. He got it while nursing some abdominal Japanese artillery shell fragments with no antibiotics.

    I am glad to have some of his DNA.

    Here in OK, essentially all hospital admissions for COVID are unvaccinated persons. I think it is ALL at this time, but few things are “all, 100%”.

    Recommendation: vaccinate.

    Hopefully this is appropriate for this new thread?

    New Study on Antibody Response Shows We Should Hit the Brakes on Push for COVID Vaccine Boosters

    The story takes a while to get to the gist of the byline.... too much blather... but...
    The first embedded link is to Science Daily... Interesting read there as well.

    Also, I cannot cite how many studies that show the long-lasting immunity that comes from initial vaccination.

    I mean, this isn’t breaking news. WBUR from May:
    A new study that focused on the immune response to COVID-19 in patients who contracted mild cases found that antibody production lasts up to a year and may last a lifetime.

    Vaccines heighten the antibody response and are crucial in protecting those who developed asymptomatic COVID-19 or never contracted the virus at all, the study finds.
    Further down in the same story... Emphasis mine...
    And Good Morning America also cited a study from NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins showing long-lasting immunity post-vaccination. For those who have received the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines—pay attention. It is a small study. I want to make that clear, but 14 vaccinated people after 15 weeks had their lymph nodes biopsied and found a lasting cellular immune response from COVID. Dr. Darien Sutton said these types of cells can last for decades (via Director’s Blog NIH):

    Interesting. I grew up in the Ivory Coast in the late 80s through early 90s and had malaria at least 2x a year despite being on meds (Nivaquine? I think that's what it was. I had hallucinations from it.)

    Anyway, malaria sucks. I'm vaccinated so I'm happy that won't be popping up years later.

    Your quote of Clusterfrack doesn't link to a post by him saying anything about malaria.

    Can you give a correct link so I can read what you're referring to? There's otherwise no context to your reply.

    Moderator edit: fixed the quote.
