Vaccine Vs. Natural Immunity: How protected are you after you catch Covid-19?
Through the pandemic, there has been a common misconception that if you are infected with COVID-19 once, your immune system will build its own natural immunity to protect you from getting COVID-19 in the future. This has become the reason why many individuals choose not to get a COVID-19 booster shot, even if many months have passed since they were last ill with COVID-19 symptoms. Read more on our newest blog on why you should still get vaccinated to stay protected from COVID-19.
