Now that we have gotten that out of the way…
“Last fall, there were reports that antibodies wane quickly after infection with SARS-CoV-2, and mainstream media interpreted that to mean that immunity was not long-lived,” said senior author Ali Ellebedy, PhD, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, Missouri. “But that’s a misinterpretation of the data. It’s normal for antibody levels to go down after acute infection, but they don’t go down to zero — they plateau. Here, we found antibody-producing cells in people 11 months after first symptoms. These cells will live and produce antibodies for the rest of people’s lives. That’s strong evidence for long-lasting immunity.”Mild COVID-19 Induces Lasting Antibody Protection — https://ntk-institute.org/article/mild-covid-19-induces-lasting-antibody-protection

This sounds reassuring
