COVID-19 vaccinations may be administered to those with a history of SARS-CoV-2 infection. Vaccination should be deferred until recovery from acute illness (if person had symptoms) and criteria have been met to discontinue isolation. However, there is no minimal interval between infection and vaccination. Evidence suggests that reinfection is uncommon in the 90 days after initial infection, so individuals may defer vaccination until the end of this period, if desired, but it is a not a requirement to receive the vaccine.

Side effects of a COVID-19 vaccination can be fever, chills, headache, muscle aches, tiredness and pain or swelling in the arm where you got your shot. These are normal signs that your body is building protection. These side effects can be worse after the 2nd dose but, usually resolve in a few days. Consult with your doctor about taking any over-the-counter pain medication such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen to help with these symptoms or if you are still experiencing side effects after a few days. More information is available on our COVID-19 side effects phone line at 210-644-3211.
Even after vaccination it’s important to keep using a mask or face-covering and keeping your distance when around others outside your home, and washing your hands often to help stop the spread of COVID-19 as we continue to learn more about immunity and protection provided by these vaccines.
