COVID-19: Myth: Natural Immunity Protects Against the Delta Variant

The Delta variant is spreading much more rapidly than previous strains of the COVID-19 virus. Current COVID vaccines are shown to be efficient in slowing the spread of this variation and lessening its effects on those who are infected. Vaccines work by producing antibodies that will fight infection.

Scientists at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have proven that COVID vaccines will create a better immune response to the Delta variant than the natural immune response people would have if they previously had the virus.

Unvaccinated people are dependent on their natural immunity, and since they don’t have sufficient antibodies specific to this virus, will often have a more severe reaction than those people who have been vaccinated.
