Hank Bernstein, MD: I’m Hank Bernstein, and I’m speaking to you today on behalf of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Vaccination Education Center. “How long will COVID-19 vaccination immunity last?” is a question” With so much disease and mortality, COVID vaccines needed to be produced at breakneck speed. We don’t have specific answers about long-term immunity because they’ve only been around for less than a year.

COVID vaccination protection appears to be staying longer and longer every day. Individuals appear to be safe for at least six months, and possibly even a little…
