If it were common knowledge I wouldn't need to research it lol. It's common knowledge for the ignorant. Vaccines wear off because diseases mutate.

No dear it's common knowledge for people who don't pull their information out of thin air.
Oh my word! Lifelong immunity for specific viruses, yes there is.
You get chicken pox naturally, you don't get it again. You get a varicella vaccine you need a booster, of the same vaccine because it wears off.
We're not talking about flu vaccines. And, no, annual flu vaccines are not boosters.
An additional dose of an immunizing agent, such as a vaccine or toxoid, given at a time after the initial dose to sustain the immune response elicited
by the previous dose of the same agent. Also called booster dose.
You said: "Where is scans the enemy and what form the enemy is in is completely relevant"
Acquired immunity develops through exposure to specific foreign microorganisms, toxins, and/or foreign tissues, which is "remembered" by the
body's immune system. When that antigen enters the body again, the immune system "remembers" exactly how to respond to it, such as with chickenpox.
Once a person is exposed to chickenpox, or the chickenpox vaccine, the immune system will produce specific antibodies against chickenpox. When that
same person is exposed to chickenpox again, the immune system will trigger the release of the particular chickenpox antibodies to fight the disease.
The degree and duration of immunity depend on the type and amount of antigen and how it enters the body.
And I will add this and then leave this discussion, because your last post is apparent deflection and your arguments devoid of credible substance.
Quote from book Vaccine Illusion, written by Immunologist Tetyana Obukhanych PHD (who after years of working as research immunologist realized that
"vaccination is one of the most deceptive inventions the science could ever convince the world to accept."):
The immune system of infants is immature and not capable of effectively dealing with natural viruses or even with artificially attenuated vaccine
viruses. Naturally immune mothers - i.e., those who had viral diseases during their own childhood - protect their babies from those diseases by
passive transfer of their immunity via the placenta during pregnancy and via breast milk after birth. Immunologists believe that passive immunity
transfer depends on virus-neutralizing antibodies in the serum and in breast milk of immune mothers. Interestingly, females of the mammalian species
are capable of much higher levels of antibody production than males. This might have been an evolutionary adaptation for the need to protect their
young via passive antibody transfer throughout childbearing age.
A child's exposure to the virus while being breastfed by a naturally immune mother would lead to an asymptomatic infection that results in life-long
immunity to that virus. If exposed to the virus for the first time only after weaning, a child would experience the disease and acquire life-long
Many viral diseases are sometimes referred to as childhood diseases, because prior to the routine childhood vaccination, these diseases occurred
mainly in children. Infants were protected from these diseases by maternal immunity, whereas adults were protected by their own life-long immunity,
which they had acquired in the childhood. The use of vaccines changed this pattern.
Unlike natural exposure to viruses that happens via mucosal surfaces, most of the live attenuated or inactivated viral vaccines are delivered by
injection. This route of exposure induces serum antibodies but not the mucosal antibodies. Since only the mucosal exposure contributes to the
production of antibodies in the mammary gland, vaccinated mothers lack the ability to transfer vaccine-induced antibodies to their infants by
breastfeeding. Furthermore, vaccinated mothers have lower levels of virus-specific antibodies in the serum compared to naturally immune mothers.
Therefore vaccinated mothers transfer fewer, if any, protective antibodies to the fetus via the placenta than naturally immune mothers. For these
reasons and increased risk for measles had been observed in infants born to vaccinated compared to naturally immune mothers in the early 1990s, when
measles was still endemic in the US (www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov...)
It was a pleasure.
