I recently had COVID-19. How long should I wait for my booster dose?

Question: 

I recently had COVID-19. How long should I wait for my booster dose? 

Answer: 
If you've recently had a positive COVID-19 test result, you can wait up to 3-6 months from when your symptoms started before getting your booster dose. If you didn't have symptoms, you can wait 3-6 months from the time you tested positive. Check with your health care provider or immunizer if you have questions.
 
You should get a booster dose even if you've already had COVID-19; the vaccine provides more reliable protection than COVID-19.
