Rockefeller in the News

The Wall Street Journal

Theodora Hatziioannou of Rockefeller University explains that while Covid-19 vaccinations are highly effective at preventing hospitalizations or death from the virus, they’re not foolproof in preventing infection.

The New York Times

“That is what explains why people do get infected and why people don’t get seriously ill,” said Michel C. Nussenzweig, an immunologist at Rockefeller University in New York. “It’s nearly unavoidable, unless you’re going to give people very frequent boosters.”

NBC News

“If you have a lot of good antibodies, they are potentially able to bind to the virus before it can cause trouble, and that can mitigate or decrease your odds of getting sick,” said Dr. Robert Darnell, a senior physician and biochemist at Rockefeller University in New York.
