Question: 

I am a health care worker who previously tested positive for COVID-19. When can I get the vaccine?

Answer: 

Some jurisdictions may delay the immunization of  people (including health care workers) who previously tested positive as a way to preserve vaccine doses while there is a supply shortage. As vaccine quantities are currently limited, those who tested positive for COVID-19 within the last three months are expected to have protection for the short term and can have their COVID-19 vaccination deferred.

Please note that the circumstances around COVID-19 vaccines in BC are changing regularly, so this information may change.
