The chief of staff at Windsor Regional Hospital is recommending the COVID-19 vaccine, even after natural immunity.

During Thursday's hospital board meeting Dr. Wassim Saad said antibody levels do not provide a full picture of whether or not someone is immune.

Saad says it could be true for the first five or six months, but anti-body levels will drop in both, a vaccinated and naturally infected person.

A vaccinated person will have more than 95 per cent protection, against severe infection.
