    yes, having recovered from Covid you will be immune to it for some time, nobody knows how long, vaccinations will also make you immune to it, but also nobody knows for how long, also as of now they don't know if you are immune from contracting the virus all together and hence will not spread it, or if it just stops you from getting sick, there has been some proof that people who are immune can still spread the virus even if it will not make them sick

    Having been infected confers immunity although it isn't clear for how long.  With the vaccine, it appears you can still get it, but your system will be better able to fight it, and you will have it with few or no symptoms.  It's unclear if you can still transmit it if you've been vaccinated, which is why people are still encouraged to wear a mask and practice social distancing.
