The antibodies that fight COVID-19 seem to be getting stronger and smarter after vaccination.
Antibodies seem to be the strongest for at least six months after vaccination.
How does it work?
This study was conducted by Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. Read about it here.
“The findings suggest that declining antibody levels in the months after vaccination primarily represent a shift to a sustainable immune response.”
Producing so many antibodies burns a lot of energy. Marinating such a level of production is too hard for the immune system. Gradually, the body switches to making smaller amounts of more powerful antibodies.
People who have two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine should be in “very good shape” if the virus doesn’t change.
Although they get stronger, the vaccine’s effectiveness does wane over time.
