That’s high of number, that would be my guess.

Well considering it says there are studies underway to measure antibody levels post vaccination, nobody here is going to be able to accurately tell you. So flip a coin and decide for yourself, you have as good a chance as anyone right now.

Here’s the beauty of the vax, no one knows. A colleague had an extremely adverse reaction from shot 1 and did not take shot 2. Her husband did take shot 2. They both took an antibody test am both after his second shot. Hers were higher than his.

Also tests for antibody levels are very noisy. Comparing one person's results to another isn't necessarily a valid comparison, based on statistical significance. The error range is too big.

Why don’t you ask LabCorp?

They don’t know (shocking) and say to ask a doctor 😂 the reason I haven’t is because I opted for this self-ordered test because my GP didn’t want to order a nucleocapsid test which would specifically test for prior infection (and why not I understand; antibody tests don’t say anything definitive about immunity and don’t functionally change much).

My husband had super high antibodies 6 weeks after his booster. But you really don’t know

Antibodies from the vax and from the virus itself are indistinguishable so could have been either.

Vax = spike protein antibodies, and virus = nucleocapsid, I thought?

My company recently cooperated with authorities in an investigation by turning over a bunch of user data, including facial recognition files. I don't have any details, obviously, but I'm still having mixed feelings about this. They definitely have information now about way more people not involved in the case vs. people actually involved. I know they'll probably just focus on the people they need to focus on, but we work so hard to keep that information secure and I guess I'm just not convinced it's as secure now as it was. Am I overthinking this?
