Sigh! D'Oh! | :doh:
Natural immunity is when you can't be infected with viruses whose normal host is a cactus. That happens for example when your cells receptors are incompatible with the virus.


Normally you retain antibodies for up to 18 months. You can't keep antibodies against every disease you have been exposed to during your life, your blood would get to thick.
Therefore we have something really nifty called "memory B-cells" that remembers the decease and will start mass producing antibodies next time you get infected. These B-cells normally functions for approx 20years, or up to a lifetime for certain deceases.

There is no reason to believe this will work differently for Covid. No matter what you read in some newspapers.

When you're freshly jabbed or really recently have been sick, many people will have so many antibodies that you will have so called sterilising immunity. You won't notice you got infected and also probably aren't infections.
Later you will get sick, but your immune system (memory cells) will recognize it immediately and start killing it off before you get badly sick. It will be more like a cold.

When you get old, the immune system will not work as well as it used to, just like the rest of your body Frown | :( , and you might need booster shots.
