I still would personally. Chances are your antibody level will have fallen by then, even if you're still able to donate plasma, it wouldn't hurt to "top up" your immune system. 

 

However, it is great that you're still able to donate blood plasma!

My thoughts are that there will have been no safety trials for those who have had the virus (and definitively retain antibody protection)   ....... in the normal course of testing a vaccine, they would trial some people who had already had the viral infection.  Hence I’m not actually in a hurry to be vaccinated ....

So the Oxford vaccine is 70% effective unless you give a half dose first and then a full dose which seems to give 90% protection but no body seems to know why!

 

It's this lack of understanding which I think will end up putting people off.

Devils advocate, that seems to be the writer of the article saying that and not them. There could be more details in the full report.

Posted in the wrong thread about this Oxford vaccine but just seen as well UK has 4m doses ready to go (once approved by regulators). 

 

Fingers crossed it gets taken up and you don't get those anti-vax berks protesting about 5g and making things worse just by doing that.

Its because the first vaccine plants the microchip and the second vaccine acts as a battery charger which powers the microchip up and therefore increasing the efficacy.
