If I’ve already had COVID‐19 and recovered do I still need to get the COVID‐19 vaccine when  it’s available?

Yes. CDC recommends that you get vaccinated even if you have already had COVID‐19 because you can catch it more than once. While you may have some short‐term antibody protection after recovering from COVID‐19, we don’t know how long this protection will last.  Please check with your doctor for further information.
