No immunity? COVID-19 reinfection ‘common’ in healthy young adults, study shows – Study Finds

“Our findings indicate that reinfection by SARS-CoV-2 in healthy young adults is common,” says senior author, Dr. Stuart Sealfon, in a statement. “Young people should get the vaccine whenever possible, since vaccination is necessary to boost immune responses, prevent reinfection, and reduce transmission.”

The study, which is part of the COVID-19 Health Action Response for Marines (CHARM), measured reinfection in more than 3,000 young, healthy U.S. Marines recruits over the course of six weeks. Study participants were predominantly male (92%) between the ages 18 and 20.
