I’ve had COVID-19. Should I still get the vaccine?
Yes, you should get the vaccine, even if you had COVID-19 previously.
For most people, it’s best to wait six months, as your COVID infection has likely offered you some protection.
You should not get your vaccine while you are sick with COVID-19, both because you risk infecting others and because the vaccine is less likely to help you while your immune system is already actively fighting an infection.
