The primary series of the vaccine, followed by booster doses, protects against severe COVID-19 illness, hospitalization, and death by triggering your body to make antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19 illness. Vaccine immunity is long lasting and safe. SARS-CoV-2 infection also triggers your body to make antibodies against re-infection, but that natural immunity is temporary (about 90 days) and comes with the risk of severe illness, hospitalization, and death.
