Should I get an updated COVID-19 vaccine if I’ve previously gotten a “booster”? What if I recently had COVID-19?
Yes, everyone age six months and older should get an updated COVID-19 vaccine at least two months after their last dose. This is also true for people who completed their primary series or received one or two “boosters”.
If you are recovering from a COVID-19 infection, you should consider delaying vaccination by three months from the start of your symptoms or positive test if you did not have symptoms. For specific guidance based on your health history, speak with your healthcare provider.
