I just had COVID-19. Do I still need a booster dose?

Question: 

I just had COVID-19. Do I still need a booster dose? 

Answer: 

You should get a booster dose even if you've already had COVID-19. The vaccine provides more reliable protection than having COVID-19.

If you've recently had a positive COVID-19 test result, you can wait up to 3 months for your booster dose or get it any time after your symptoms have passed. It is not harmful to get vaccinated and it will give you a good boost to your protection.
