You can get as many boosters as you want, but there is no guarantee that you can't get COVID again. You will build up more antibodies, so if you get COVID again it will be a mild form.

Definitely go ahead with the new (bivalent) booster, which covers Omicron variants ba.4 and ba.5. It is recommended for everyone, 2 months or more after any previous COVID immunization. Good luck!
