Oddly enough I just got to work and was talking with our events director; he had Covid at the end of October, at that time we were told by the professionals that the antibodies would last 3 months. Shortly after that some professional came out and said they now last up to 5 months or longer. Well anyways, our events director went for his annual check up on March 1st and they did an antibody test and he is still "positive" for it, meaning he still is immune to it. So that is at least 4-5 months, it could be longer...who the hell knows?
But as for your daughter and her experience, I know we have talked about it before, but I had the same deal on Jan. 27 2020.
My Fiance and I got Covid mid March of 2020. It was a mild case for both of us. Being that we live in NY and it was the beginning of the pandemic it was impossible to get tested. We both knew that it had to be Covid since we lost smell and taste for a few weeks etc. It wasn't until around November that we happened to be getting blood tests for other reasons and we asked for the antibody tests just for our own knowledge. Both of us still tested positive for the antibodies over 8 months out. I'm of the opinion since this is a new disease and there is no history on it that they really have no clue how long the antibodies will last and they are just guessing and moving the mark as they get more knowledge.
All that being said I'm not going to rush out to get the vaccine since I have natural immunity at this point. I'm pretty sure once the world opens up and I need to start traveling overseas for business again I'll be forced to take it which I am fine with.
