Good reply.No one knows how long it will last because a) the virus hasn't been around long enough to gauge very long-term immunity (current reports put immunity at about 8 months minimum for most) and b) the vaccine has not been used for a long enough time period to gauge. We don't even have proper evidence yet for whether the vaccines prevent asymptomatic disease.
The reason I asked because I could get vaccinated early because my gf is a RN and she could claim me as a spouse. I am planning to travel oversea by end of this year 2021 (hopefully) and if I get the vaccine "too soon", I may need to do it again because other countries may require a more "current/up to date" proof of vaccination in order to get in.
Would we have to do this vaccination like the flu from now on? That's how I understand it. Not just a one time deal and be done with it.Possibly never if it ends the pandemic.
