1. a ? from a perspective that i don't know if this is a dumb ?

but once antibodies are developed, even if they fade, doesn't the body's immune
system have the ability to develop them again quickly?
i mean, you get measles, mumps, rubella etc vaccines as infants, and boosters aren't required, no? because those don't mutate, correct?
we get flu shots yearly because there is never a clear knowledge of what influenza virus is oncoming, but at some point, having immunization against
one strain, does the immune system have some 'memory' of how to fight it?

i guess my question is, having developed antibodies once successfully, aren't the odds of developing again quickly higher, unless the virus has mutated to a version that is deadlier?

just thinking you might give your input, and enlighten me... be gentle
