Re infection is possible and anybody levels may diminish with time. Consider COVID 19 vaccination after discussing with your PCP. Continue to follow CDC guidelines.

Hi, I am not sure what you are asking. Please remember that there are multiple strains of the COVID 19 virus. Since it has been over 90 days since you were infected with COVID 19, getting COVID 19 vaccine when available would be in your best interest.
