Featured FAQ

I recently tested positive for COVID-19. Can I still get a booster?
If you have a current COVID-19 infection, you should wait until you have completed your isolation period before getting a booster shot. For most people, this means after the five-day isolation followed by five days of continued masking. Individuals should work with their health care provider if they have specific questions or concerns. 
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend getting a COVID-19 vaccine even if you have already have COVID-19 because vaccines provide additional protection against serious illness. 
When you're recovered and eligible get your COVID-19 booster shot. Then complete the vaccination reporting process to upload your booster shot information. If you're unable to get your booster shot by the deadline due to illness, you may wait to get a booster shot until you are recovered or out of isolation.
