Due to strong interest in our COVID‑19 research, we are putting up this temporary page with relevant information.
Epidemiological associations suggest the MMR vaccine could possibly offer protection from COVID‑19. If this proves to be the case, it could explain why young people, most of whom have had MMR, as well as people of all ages from highly-vaccinated populations like Hong Kong, rarely die from COVID‑19. Hong Kong has had only four COVID‑19 deaths compared to over 20,000 deaths in New York City.
After World Organization published its first epidemiological report about the MMR vaccine and COVID‑19 by Jeffey E. Gold and Larry P. Tilley, D.V.M., researchers from countries around the world began publishing additional findings on this subject.
