All COVID-19 vaccinations are voluntary. To review frequently asked questions about the COVID-19 vaccination, visit:www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/faq.html

The CDC recommends to not receive the COVID-19 vaccine within two weeks of receiving other vaccines. Due to the severe health risks associated with COVID-19 and the fact that reinfection with COVID-19 is possible, individuals who have previously tested positive for COVID-19 may be vaccinated after they have recovered and their isolation period is complete. Individuals on isolation or quarantine must stay home. Current evidence suggests that reinfection with the virus that causes COVID-19 is uncommon in the 90 days after initial infection, so you may wait 90 days if desired. If you were treated for COVID-19 symptoms with monoclonal antibodies or convalescent plasma, you must wait 90 days before getting a COVID-19 vaccine. Talk to your doctor if you are unsure what treatments you received or if you have more questions about getting a COVID-19 vaccine.
