Who knows. But I'm hearing that quite a few people are seeing antibodies disappear after a few months.

a proper antibody test doesn’t simply just give a single positive or negative it should give you the levels of 2 types of antibody ( indicating negative, borderline or positive for each ) ….. plus a simple positive or negative of third.

were you negative in all 3 ?

I was negative for all three tests, yes. For the spike protein antibody, where a negative is 12 AU/ml or less, I got 6. My wife got 75 in the same spike antibody test - I've heard of people getting up to 250 AU/ml from vaccine and even higher if they actually caught covid.

I guess you were in the unlucky 97%

Looks Pfizer is going to start saying 3 shots soon, and annual boosters.

I thought the annual booster was pretty much always going to be on the cards to be fair.
