People with COVID-19 should wait to be vaccinated until they have recovered from their illness and have met the criteria for discontinuing isolation, even if they were asymptomatic. You may consider delaying your booster vaccine by 3 months from when your symptoms started or, if you had no symptoms, when you received a positive test. However, it is safe to get vaccinated as soon as you have finished isolating.
Getting a COVID-19 vaccine after you recover from COVID-19 infection provides added protection against COVID-19. People who already had COVID-19 and do not get vaccinated after their recovery are more likely to get COVID-19 again than those who get vaccinated after their recovery.
