COVID-19 vaccines are safe if you have been sick with COVID-19 in the past 90 days. You can get vaccinated as soon as your isolation period is over, and your symptoms are gone. You should not get vaccinated while sick or during your isolation period to avoid spreading the virus to others. Because you have tested positive for COVID-19, you can wait to get your vaccine until that 90 days are up to allow that appointment to be open for someone else.
