I just cannot fathom making a person take a vaccine when they have already had COVID.  That just goes against all prior scientific certainty.

No, it doesn't.  The vaccine increases the immunity in those with prior infections.  Two much-beloved long time posters here not only had Covid but continue to suffer from long Covid.  One is a doctor who got it early and almost died.  Twice.  Both got the vaccine, twice, and one has received a third booster shot.  The more immunity, the better!

Exactly, bman.  I know several people (family and friends) who had COVID.  With some, their antibody titre was fairly low, suggesting they had a mild infection.  Thus, vaccination was more than warranted.  Others have had COVID but don't know it.  Again, vaccination warranted.  And, for many even with a severe case, the antibody levels decline more than in those who have had two jabs, and are even lower yet compared to those who have had a third jab/booster.  Thus, there is SO much variation in those that have had COVID that it is nonsense to lump them all together as some here are doing.
