On Roya's news bulletin Saturday evening, Dr. Montaser Al-Belbisi said that every person has different immunities and antibodies to any given infection. To this end, the Ministry of Health has stopped examining antibodies, because they do not represent everyone's bodily immunity. 

Belbeisi stated that the antibodies are made of immune cells that are able to raise the level of antibodies when the body is exposed to the virus.

He stressed that the coronavirus changes in mutated forms, but the vaccine is the only way to combat the virus now and in the future.

He also said that vaccine immunity is stronger and longer-lasting than natural immunity. 

He indicated that the body's immunity is stronger when the inflammation is more severe, and that immunity protects a person from severe infection, but does not protect him from infection entirely.
