My child had COVID-19. Do they still need to get vaccinated?
People who have had COVID-19 should still get vaccinated. This is because not everyone develops a strong immune response (protection) after having COVID-19. Vaccination is the best way to help develop immunity and provides more reliable protection than COVID-19.
Children can wait 3-6 months from when their symptoms started (or from when they tested positive if they had no symptoms) for their booster dose. Check with your health care provider if you have questions.
