[COVID-19] Prior immunization as protective for COVID-19 disease/bad outcomes


(Andrew S. Kanter, MD MPH FACMI FAMIA) #1

There has been a fair amount of interest in prior immunization as being protective for bad COVID-19 outcomes, particularly BCG and OPV (Oral polio). Has anyone looked at this within the community?

The research like this paper might be possible.

Hi Andrew, take a look at this paper from Lancet, they looked at BCG in reducing the impact of COVID 19. I am interested if you guys would like to pursue this.
