Yes, antibody levels do predict response to coronavirus vaccines

The predictions of how well coronavirus vaccines work have always focused on antibody levels, so that the more vigorous the antibody response to a particular vaccine, the more likely, scientists have said, that that vaccine would protect against infection.

Simple common sense, but sometimes common sense isn’t right so it’s great that a new study in the journal, Nature, has confirmed that antibody levels are indeed an accurate measure of effectiveness for those vaccines.

Which will also be an accurate measure (based on lab studies) of effectiveness against the scariants.

I continue to marvel at how fabulous has been the scientific response to this pandemic.
