Re: Covid Vaccine: Will you get it?

Btw is there any point for people who have had Corona to take these vaccines? I mean someone like FMF?
I would think so, since antibodies developed due to having COVID usually decline after a few months, and with the vaccines, there is more chance for longer-lasting immunity, though they are still unsure how long, exactly. That's still part of the ongoing trials/study, apparently (as ennui mentioned). This seems to be a pretty good article about it, dated December 9th:

How long will Covid-19 vaccines protect you from infection?

https://qz.com/1943301/how-long-will...rom-infection/

Partial quote:

"It could also be that reinfections simply occur when individuals didn’t get sick enough to develop strong antibody responses against the virus. If that’s the case, there’s a chance vaccines could generate a stronger immune response than these weaker cases, protecting people for multiple years. Early mouse studies of mRNA vaccines targeting SARS-CoV-2 provided immunity to mice 13 weeks after they received two doses, which could translate to years of time in humans.

But the fact remains that no one really knows the answers to these questions. Scientists will just have to keep collecting information from the continued vaccine trials to know for sure.

The Pfizer/BioNTech and other trials will extend for dozens of months. Tens of thousands of trial participants will continue to check in periodically with healthcare providers, providing more data about long-term safety and efficacy and receiving supportive care should they need it. If participants who received the vaccine go on to develop Covid-19 after a year, for example, scientists will know that annual boosters may be necessary."
