How long does COVID-19 immunity last?

A year into the new pandemic, there’s still much to learn about immunity to SARS-CoV-2, the new coronavirus that causes COVID-19. Immunity to other coronaviruses that cause the common cold usually lasts a matter of months and reinfection is common. After natural infection or vaccination, the immune system produces antibodies against the virus; this usually happens within a couple of weeks. Vaccines appear to provide SARS-CoV-2 immunity similar to that of natural infection. Most experts expect that population or herd immunity will be achieved when approximately 75% of the population as been exposed, either via natural infection or vaccination.
