Before you get your vaccine
- If you are sick, even with a mild illness, you should not get vaccinated. Stay home and get tested for COVID-19.
- If you currently have COVID-19, please wait until you have recovered before getting vaccinated.
- If you had COVID-19 and are recovered, you can get the vaccine or choose to wait for up to three months. It is uncommon to get infected with COVID-19 again within the first three months of your initial infection.
- If you had monoclonal antibodies or convalescent plasma as part of COVID-19 treatment, wait for at least 90 days before getting the vaccine to avoid interfering with your treatment.
- If you are under quarantine, you can leave quarantine to get your vaccine, but if you have symptoms, stay home and get tested for COVID-19.
- If you have COVID-19 and are in isolation, you will need to wait to get your first or second dose until you are able to end your isolation.
- You can get the COVID-19 vaccine and other vaccines at the same time.
- You do not need to get tested for COVID-19 before getting the vaccine, unless you have symptoms. Then stay home and get tested for COVID-19.
- If you are getting a booster, second or additional dose, remember to bring your vaccine card.
