New data indicate that people whose immune systems have responded strongly to the triple vaccine against measles, mumps and rubella (MMR), may be less likely to be severely affected if they are infected with the “emerging corona” virus, according to the agency “Reuters”.
The MMR2 vaccine, manufactured by Merck and licensed in 1979, stimulates the immune system to produce antibodies. The researchers reported yesterday (Friday) in the journal “MBIO” that it was found that among the 50 patients with “Covid-19” under the age of 42 years who were vaccinated with the “MMR2” vaccine, and they are children, the higher the levels of antibodies The so-called “EGJ” vaccine produced against the mumps virus in particular, their symptoms were less severe.
And “Covid-19” was asymptomatic in people who had the highest level of mumps antibodies.
More research is needed to prove that the vaccine prevents acute infection with “Covid-19”. However, Jeffrey Gould, who participated in the study, said in a statement that the new findings “may explain the reason why children have a significantly lower incidence of (Covid-19) compared to adults, as well as a much lower mortality rate.”
“Most of the children get their first vaccination against measles, mumps and rubella at the age of 12 to 15 months, while they get the second vaccination from the age of four to six years,” he said.
