Kidney transplant recipient Andrew Linder had an antibody test yet came back negative even after receiving four doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, a CNN report said.
The 34 year old is still staying at home almost all the time and strictly limiting his contact with people other than his wife because of insecurity of his protection against the virus.
Linder received a kidney transplant from his wife Emily in 2019, and he will be on immunosuppressants for the rest of his life to keep his body from rejecting the organ.
Health officials are recommending third and even fourth shots to boost Covid-19 resistance for people with certain conditions, but that hasn’t eased the fears of some immunocompromised people.
The CDC authorized a third dose for certain immunocompromised people 18 and older in August. It said a third dose, rather than a booster — the CDC makes a distinction between the two — was necessary because the immunocompromised may not have had a complete immune response from the first two doses.
