Air pollution can reduce the effectiveness of the Covid-19 vaccine | Good health

Oct 25, 2023

October 24, 2023 ( Bibliomed ). People exposed to higher levels of air pollution before the Covid-19 pandemic had lower antibody responses to vaccines, making them more vulnerable, indicates a study carried out by the Barcelona Institute for GlobalHealth, in Spain, and the Germans Trias i Pujol Research Institute, in Germany. Researchers analyzed data from 927 participants aged between 40 and 65 who completed questionnaires and collected blood samples in the summer of 2020, shortly after the first lockdown. In 2021, after participants received two doses of Covid-19 vaccines produced by AstraZeneca, Pfizer or Moderna, the research team measured antibodies to five viral antigens. Exposure to fine particulate matter, or PM2.5, carbon black, or BC, nitrogen dioxide, NO2, and ozone, O3, was estimated for each participant based on their address before the pandemic. The test results showed that, in uninfected individuals, pre-pandemic exposure to the tested pollutant was associated with a 5% to 10% reduction in vaccine-induced antibody spikes. They said decreased efficacy was seen in all three vaccines. According to researchers, it can induce chronic inflammation, which has been linked to a negative effect on vaccine effectiveness. Additionally, pollution has been linked to a wide range of negative health problems, including lung cancer, cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, and diabetes. The researchers said those previously infected with Covid-19 had higher vaccine responses, which could explain why the pollutants’ effect was only seen in people without previous infection. They said further investigation should be done into long-term exposure to air pollution in hybrid immunity. Fonte: Environmental Health Perspectives. DOI: 10.1289/EHP11989.
