Protection and Waning of Natural and Hybrid Immunity to SARS-CoV-2

Yair Goldberg, Micha Mandel, Yinon M. Bar-On, Omri Bodenheimer:

Among persons who had been previously infected with SARS-CoV-2 (regardless of whether they had received any dose of vaccine or whether they had received one dose before or after infection), protection against reinfection decreased as the time increased since the last immunity-conferring event; however, this protection was higher than that conferred after the same time had elapsed since receipt of a second dose of vaccine among previously uninfected persons. A single dose of vaccine after infection reinforced protection against reinfection.
