🎉 More good news on the real-world effectiveness of the updated COVID-19 vaccine! A recent analysis by the CDC found that people who received the updated COVID vaccine were less than half as likely to have a symptomatic COVID infection over the next four months, including the time period of the new JN.1 variant.
Like all observational studies, these data have some potential biases that could both under or overestimate the vaccine effectiveness. But combined with other recent data showing good protection against hospitalization for those who had the updated vaccine, the evidence for the value of getting the updated vaccine is mounting.
And obviously, Taylor and Travis know the benefit of vaccines… All too well 😊.
