If you had COVID-19 in the past 90 days, you likely have some immunity to one strain even if your infection was mild. The vaccine has been shown to lower the severity of disease for multiple strains, so you are encouraged to still get vaccinated after having COVID-19, though we ask that you wait until you are completely symptom free and out of the isolation period. Those in quarantine are also being asked to wait until quarantine has ended to continue their vaccine series. Continue with the second vaccine appointment if your case of COVID or quarantine does not overlap with your appointment date if you are symptom free.
If you have questions about the various COVID-19 vaccines, please visit this CDC website that offers a wide variety of helpful FAQs, background info, and more.
Also, if you are a student and have been vaccinated, you may waive out of COVID-19 weekly screening by uploading proof of vaccination to the COVID reporting form.
