A new study shows the risk of reinfection for the coronavirus is rare but highest for older adults.

Researchers say older adults are more vulnerable due to weaker immune systems.

They say that's why it is important for people to get one of the vaccines.

Researchers at the University of Copenhagen found out of 17,000 people infected with coronavirus between last March and May, 72 were reinfected during the second surge.
