    I think you are getting coverage of the human immune system wrong. Vaccines and infection do not prevent you getting infected or reinfected from a respiratory virus like influenza or the coronavirus. What vaccines and natural infections do is allow your body to recognize and infection so that your body can respond the NEXT time you get infected and you won’t get as sick as you otherwise would have gotten. They do not prevent infections. If they did we wouldn’t have Omicron Spreading the way that it is currently spreading.
