Jan 21 '17 at 4:13 comment added MattDMo @user45808 that's fine, but unfortunately your two cents are irrelevant and somewhat misleading. Not all white blood cells are phagocytes, not by a long shot. Similarly, not all lymphocytes are B cells. Digested antigens are not "given to" the lymphocyte like a delivery person handing off a package - they are presented on the antigen-presenting cell's surface for cognate receptors to bind to, recognize, and stimulate the resting B (or T) cell. Also, not all cell-mediated immunity to repeat exposures to antigen happen without the host's knowledge - some infections still take time to fight off.
Jan 19 '17 at 17:11 comment added user45808 @iayork Damn you're actually right. Probably should have read the question better but this is all I remember so I thought I've give my two cents.
Jan 19 '17 at 17:08 comment added iayork This answer is misleading. You are describing what happens with mature B cells following antigen exposure, which is a completely separate thing from whether newly-formed B cells continue to arise throughout an individual's life.
