My child has already had COVID-19, should they get vaccinated?

Yes, your child should be vaccinated regardless of whether they have already had COVID-19 because research has not yet shown how long they are protected from getting COVID-19 again and evidence is emerging that people get better protection by being fully vaccinated compared with having had COVID-19. If your child was treated for COVID-19 with monoclonal antibodies or convalescent plasma, they should wait 90 days before getting a COVID-19 vaccine. Otherwise they can be vaccinated any time after they have recovered from their acute illness and no longer remain in quarantine.

If your child has a history of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C), consider delaying vaccination until your child has recovered from being sick and for 90 days after the date of diagnosis of MIS-C.
