I'm guessing if you go to the CDC website there will be info on this. But the immunity one gets from having had covid, assuming one does get immunity at all, hasn't been answered yet. What is believed by science is that any immunity conferred by having had covid isn't as long lasting or as effective as a vaccine, especially a vaccine that works really well. It is possible to get reinfected, especially with the new variants floating around and the newer variants we can expect to arise as humans continue to act as if there isn't a highly contagious and lethal pandemic around. Until the entire world gets vaccinated sufficiently to get to herd immunity, and that won't happen for a very long time, variants that your immunity and possibly even vaccine immunity won't work for. You do need to wait until you're free of covid, I believe, and if you're only two weeks into it you may very well still have it despite not having any symptoms anymore and not testing positive for it anymore. But again, here, I'd consult the CDC and NIH websites. I think unfortunately studies if they're still needed can't be done when the crisis is ongoing, because so many of the people who do such studies are busy treating patients, formulating vaccines and treatments. It's all hands on deck. So most of what we know is being learned as we're treating patients. If the virus gets under control that's when the post-mortems will be done and the studies will be done more fully than they are now. Because covid probably will be with us for the rest of human existence and that means there will be a need and time to do that kind of time consuming research. It's very unlikely we will eradicate covid, as it has been allowed to flourish so much by people not taking proper public health steps it has already mutated a lot and spread everywhere. No vaccine is 100% effective, and the same lack of compliance that has plagued public health will also plague vaccinations, unless something changes. Right now, rich countries are the only ones seriously doing vaccination, and even then it has been painfully slow, and we already have the states dropping the public health measures, so don't expect this to ever go completely away. Bottom line, don't know when you should get vaccinated but yes, you do need to get vaccinated. Peace. Hope you're fully recovered.
The CDC says yes, you should get vaxxed. The only stipulation is that if you were treated with monoclonal antibodies or convalescent plasma, you need to wait 90 days. Other than that, they recommend getting vaxxed as normal.
I just made my appointment and am really nervous. I don't want to rock the boat. I am not sure why I'm having this anxious reaction to getting the vaccine!
We have deleted the off-topic discussion. Specialmom asked about people who've had COVID-19 getting vaccinated, along with a few specific questions. The efficacy of vaccines was not one of her questions, and the debate about that is off-topic.
We are an evidence-based, science-based site. We are happy to let people post links from reputable evidence-based, science-based reputable sites.
Please keep responses on topic.
I hope you are feeling okay after your second vaccine! I received my first vaccine at the end of December, caught COVID the first week of January, and then received my second shot. I did well and suspect you will too. It is anxiety provoking, but such a relief to be fully vaccinated and recovered. ;)
If you already affected Covid-19, you still can take vaccine and It's help you to recover it and also you support other by PLASMA. I hope it's for you
