COVID-19 vaccination is recommended for everyone 6 months and older, regardless of a history of symptomatic or asymptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infection. This includes people with prolonged post-COVID-19 symptoms and applies to primary series and booster doses.
More studies are needed to determine the effects of vaccination on post-COVID conditions, but growing epidemiologic evidence from adults and adolescents indicates that vaccination following infection further increases protection from subsequent infection. Rapid and multi-year studies are underway to further investigate post-COVID conditions in more detail. These studies will help us better understand post-COVID conditions and how to treat patients with these longer-term effects.
If you have concerns about vaccination, please contact your healthcare provider about getting the COVID-19 vaccine.
