Thanks for using just answer

You had covid in august 6, you still recovering

I'll recommend postponing the vaccine for another 2-3 weeks at least

You're already protected at present as you already had covid

Chest xray shows the effusion is improving

Doctor actually I had covid July 18, negative 3x on antigen on July 29. But fever didn't go away as I had covid pneumonia I got admitted aug 6, they said I was still positive. Could it be false positive and that's just traces from covid? Still can't get it doctor?
Expert:  Anthony Osula replied 15 days ago.

You can test positive for up to 3 months after the initial covid infection

You have antibodies from your previous covid

There's no rush for you to have the vaccine at present

You should concentrate on your recovery first
