Frequently asked questions

If I have already had COVID-19 and recovered, do I still need to get vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine?


Yes, you should be vaccinated regardless of whether you already had COVID-19 because: Research has not yet shown how long you are protected from getting COVID-19 again after you recover from COVID-19. Vaccination helps protect you even if you’ve already had COVID-19. Evidence is emerging that people get better protection by being fully vaccinated compared with having had COVID-19. One study showed that unvaccinated people who already had COVID-19 are more than 2 times as likely than fully vaccinated people to get COVID-19 again. If you were treated for COVID-19 with monoclonal antibodies or convalescent plasma, you should 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.




Should I still wear a mask once I’m fully vaccinated?


If you’re fully vaccinated you can start safely doing many activities again. However, the more contagious Delta variant is spreading across the United States. Health experts are encouraging all people to wear a mask indoors in public if they are in an area of “substantial or high transmission”. Wearing a mask in places with higher potential transmission will protect you against the Delta variant and prevent you from possibly spreading it to others. If you or someone in your household has a weakened immune system, is not yet vaccinated, or is at increased risk for severe disease, consider continuing to wear a mask anytime you’re around people outside your household. This is regardless of your vaccination status or the level of transmission in your area. You should continue to wear a mask where required by laws, rules, regulations, or local guidance.




I’m not yet fully vaccinated, should I wear a mask?


Yes, it’s best to keep taking all precautions until you are fully vaccinated. You’ll be fully protected 2 weeks after your final vaccine dose, meaning 2 weeks after a single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, or 2 weeks after the second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines. In the meantime, keep wearing a mask, washing your hands often with soap and water, and staying 6 feet away from others. Taking these precautions until you are fully vaccinated helps to protect everyone.




If I have an underlying condition, can I get a COVID-19 vaccine?


People with underlying medical conditions can receive a COVID-19 vaccine as long as they have not had an immediate or severe allergic reaction to a COVID-19 vaccine or to any of the ingredients in the vaccine. Learn more about vaccination considerations for people with underlying medical conditions. Vaccination is an important consideration for adults of any age with certain underlying medical conditions because they are at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19.
