"Participants in the MMR group, compared with those in the placebo group, had a 48% risk reduction in symptomatic COVID–19 (RR = 0.52; 95% CI: 0.33-0.83; p=0.004) and a 76% risk reduction in COVID–19 treatment"
Coincidentally, I happened to get a MMR shot in March 2020... This could go a long way to explain differences in covid rates/deaths between countries. Wouldn't be the first time MMR vaccines turned out to have "off-target" effects too.
@pete please let me have that one instead of mRNA!
If it’s all about health, why not?
@lucash_dev Yup. MMR has far more data.
@pete is this one part of the usual childhood schedule?
If so, maybe kids are less vulnerable bc they are already vaccinated — but immunity wanes with decades (or it was introduced recently)
Imagine if all we needed was getting an old-school, highly tested vaccine every 10 years!
@pete looks like it was mass deployed in the early eighties.
It kinda coincides with the age people are more vulnerable to Covid.
@pete this “anti-vaxer” here is now considering getting a booster just in case 😂😂😂😂😂
@lucash_dev Shouldn't hurt. I actually got it because I was planning on visiting someone with a new baby in a country where rubella vaccination is recommended for close contacts. That's not done separately in Canada, so they just gave me the MMR vaccine.
