Experts advise people who’ve had COVID-19 to get vaccinated. Still, natural immunity seems to provide stronger, more lasting protection than vaccines alone.

And, it’s a staggering number: Nearly 39 million Americans have had confirmed coronavirus infections – almost 12% of the population.

A spate of new research suggests that natural infection can offer powerful long-term protection against the coronavirus, but that immunity isn’t guaranteed. So researchers still recommend a full vaccine course to lower the risk of reinfection for people who’ve had COVID-19 before.
