Media: Exercise improves COVID vaccine effectiveness

Mainstream media outlets are reporting that exercise can help boost the efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccine, based on a study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. 

“Regular exercise may improve the effectiveness of coronavirus vaccines,” reported Washington Post Tuesday. 

“Regular exercise could amplify the benefits of your next coronavirus vaccine or booster, a new study found. Exercisers who were vaccinated were about 25 percent less likely to be hospitalized with covid than sedentary people who received the same vaccine,” WaPo added in a tweet. 

“Regular physical exercise could boost the effectiveness of your COVID-19 vaccine,” reported Fortune similarly. 

“Researchers found that participants who were fully vaccinated and had high weekly levels of physical activity (150 minutes or more per week) were nearly threefold less likely to be admitted to the hospital than participants who were vaccinated but in the low physical activity category (less than 60 minutes per week),” continued the article. 

The researchers compared between vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals in their study but did not show any findings for the unvaccinated. The study only showed that vaccinated individuals who exercised more had less hospitalizations than vaccinated individuals who exercised less.  

The study notes that it did not find causality between the vaccine and exercise. 

Internet users mocked the media for failing to report the efficacy of exercise during the pandemic.

“Regular exercise doesn't keep you healthy,” wrote one netizen. “Regular exercise improves the efficacy of your vaccines, which keep you healthy. Follow the science ™.”

During the pandemic, some celebrities slammed the lack of emphasis on exercise and a healthy lifestyle as an effective defense against the virus. 

“I’m over COVID,” Maher said earlier this year. “It was never that virulent a threat, I thought, to people who were in good health.” 

The media personality stressed that the virus is really a threat to those who are unhealthy, citing a study from the CDC that found that 78% of COVID-19 patients who died or went to the hospital were overweight or obese. 

“So, the fact that America, the medical establishment, never even attempted to get people to live a healthier lifestyle as a response to this pandemic is a giant scandal to me,” continued Maher. “The people who didn’t do that have blood on their hands. There’s no other way to put it.” 

Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who drew fire from the mainstream media and vaccine die-hards last year for not getting the injection, expressed a similar frustration on The Pat McAfee Show last year. 

“The one frustration that I have in all of this, is that throughout this entire time there hasn’t been real conversation around health,” said the sports star. “As far as giving people things to think about when it comes to health, like how to be healthier. As far as your diet, vitamins, and exercise.”
