The Good Part about Waning Immunity - From The Atlantic


Confused about waning immunity and why we need boosters for the Covid vaccines?

This article by The Atlantic's science writer Katherine J. Wu, does a great job of explaining for the rest of us: 

  • How the immune system works
  • Why waning immunity is a natural part of the process
  • and Why we shouldn't necessarily be afraid of it.  If we do get infected with with Covid, B-cells and T-cells will take over the attack to minimize the infection.
