Question: If I already had COVID-19 and recovered, do I still need to get vaccinated?
Answer: Yes, you should be vaccinated regardless of whether you already had COVID-19. That’s because experts do not yet know how long you are protected from getting sick again after recovering from COVID-19.
Question: Will getting a COVID-19 vaccine cause me to test positive for COVID-19 on a viral test?
