Natural immunity IS just as good as being jabbed: Official figures show unvaccinated Britons who beat Covid enjoy same protection against Delta as those who are double-dosed
- Office for National Statistics report said catching virus slashed infection risk
- But it was reduced by same amount as among those who were double-jabbed
- ONS statistician said the results may be because of waning vaccine immunity
Recovering from Covid offers just as good protection as getting two doses of any vaccine, official figures suggest.
An Office for National Statistics’ (ONS) report published today found unvaccinated Britons who catch the Delta variant are around 71 per cent less likely to test positive for a second time.
It is estimated the risk of infection is slashed by approximately 67 per cent in people given two doses of Pfizer or AstraZeneca’s jabs.
