The preprint, which was conducted by researchers with the Cleveland Clinic and has not yet been peer reviewed…
According to the study, the risk of COVID infection “increased with time since the most recent prior COVID-19 episode and with the number of vaccine doses previously received.
“The higher the number of vaccines previously received, the higher the risk of contracting COVID-19,” the researchers said.
Noting that the “evolution” of COVID-19 into vaccine-resistant variants “necessitates a more nuanced approach to assessing the potential impact of vaccination than when the original vaccines were developed,” the Cleveland Clinic researchers suggested that there are “[a]dditional factors” that ought to be evaluated “beyond vaccine effectiveness.”
According to the preprint, one of those factors is an apparent correlation between more jabs and a higher risk of infection.
“The association of increased risk of COVID-19 with higher numbers of prior vaccine doses in our study, was unexpected,” the researchers wrote…
Cleveland Clinic researchers went on to point out that theirs isn’t “the only study to find a possible association with more prior vaccine doses and higher risk of COVID-19.”
