Hello~I don't think you loose your immunities, but to make sure, I would certainly ask your GP.

Hi there.  This is really a fascinating question and I had never thought about that.  Here is a great resource to look through on the subject.  https://immunisationhandbook.health.gov.au/vaccination-for-special-risk-groups/vaccination-for-people-who-have-recently-received-normal-human  You should be covered for vaccinations or immunity that you've had previously.  It also gives guidelines for any going forward.
