Isn’t natural immunity from having COVID-19 better than getting a vaccine?

The protection someone gains from having an infection (called natural immunity) varies depending on the disease, and it varies from person to person. Because this virus is new, we don’t know how long natural immunity might last. Some early evidence—based on a small sample size of people—seems to suggest that natural immunity may not last very long. Regarding vaccination, we won’t know how long immunity lasts until we have more data on how well it works over time. Experts are trying to learn more about both natural immunity and vaccine-induced immunity of COVID-19.
