I HAD COVID-19 AND RECOVERED
People who have recovered can help in the fight against COVID-19 by donating plasma that can be used to treat hospitalized patients, especially those who have severe cases of the disease.
Simply put, a vaccine trains the immune system to recognize viruses, bacteria, and other germs, or pathogens, so the body can react. The human body produces special proteins called antibodies to fight germs like the virus that causes COVID-19.
