Measles Vaccine: Is There a Protective Role in COVID 19 Pandemic?

Publication date: Jun 24, 2020

The following two mechanisms that explain the ability of measles vaccine to cause partial protection against COVID-19. The first is that measles vaccine may increase the ability of the immune system to fight off pathogens other than measles due to the generated bystander immunity that would enhance the overall immunity against the new coronavirus. The second is that SARS-CoV-2 is proven to have structure similarities with measles, which may cause cross-reactivity and immunity between measles vaccines and COVID-19, leading to partial protection against COVID-19 in vaccinated subjects
