At the end of September, Pozidarka S was vaccinated for the fourth time against the coronavirus. “At first we thought there was a mistake.” Her grandson told her.
The pensioner suffers from asthma and diabetes. To protect herself from the coronavirus, she was vaccinated twice in the spring with the Moderna vaccine. After some time, when she had to go to the hospital due to a circulatory collapse, I was recommended a third vaccination with AstraZeneca.
But this is not the end of it, because: “The patient has not yet been able to make antibodies due to the underlying disease,” Karin Wehringer, spokeswoman for the Vienna General Hospital.

The fourth injection, again with Modern, should finally pick up the 66-year-old’s antibody. Inspection next week should bring certainty. “The case itself is not critical. Over-vaccination is not to be expected.” Austrian vaccination expert Professor Herwig Kolaric says.
One in 100 will not make any antibodies
According to one study, one in ten people with a chronic inflammatory disease does not produce neutralizing antibodies to the COVID-19 virus even after mRNA vaccination. In healthy people, it was only 1 in 100.
Therefore, experts recommend a new vaccination – ideally with the preparation of another vaccine. The absence of antibodies does not mean that there is no protection.
