Incomplete: To get lifelong immunity from vaccination, you are supposed to have a second vaccine within 6 - 12 months from the first. There is research to support that if you get your 2nd dose within 5 1/2 years (and maybe longer) you should not need any further vaccines however.

Varies: Varies from person to person.Only bloodwork would accurately measure, but probably low.
