How soon can you get vaccinated after recovering from COVID-19?"After testing positive for COVID-19, you will need to postpone getting vaccinated until your symptoms have resolved and you've met the criteria for discontinuing isolation. This timeline can vary by person, depending on your symptom severity and the treatments you may have received.If you have symptoms, the criteria for ending isolation include:10 days have passed since your symptoms began;
24 fever-free hours without the use of fever-reducing medications;
Your other COVID-19 symptoms are improvingSome of the other symptoms of COVID-19 may take quite some time to go away. For instance, loss of smell or taste can linger in some people. You do not need to delay vaccination if you're still experiencing these more mild symptoms of COVID-19.If you are not experiencing symptoms, there's one main criteria for ending isolation:10 days have passed since your positive viral testIf you begin to develop symptoms during isolation, follow the "if you have symptoms" criteria above before getting vaccinated.
