Vaccination after testing positive for COVID-19

ATAGI continues to advise that previous infection is not a contraindication to vaccination and vaccination can occur following recovery of acute illness from COVID-19. People who have had COVID-19 can be vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine once they recover from the acute illness. There is no requirement to delay vaccination, however, vaccination can be deferred for up to 4 months as past infection reduces the chance of reinfection for at least this amount of time.

Please Note:

  • If a patient tests positive for COVID-19 between their first and second doses, or between their second and booster dose, the patient should delay the next dose until they have recovered from the acute illness.
  • People with prolonged symptoms from COVID-19 beyond 4 months should be vaccinated on a case-by-case basis.

Temporary exemption from COVID-19 vaccination:

  • Those with a PCR-confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection can temporarily defer vaccination up until 4 months after the infection.
  • The time frame for temporary exemptions was previously 6 months.
  • ATAGI has decreased the time allowable for deferral of vaccination after prior SARS-CoV-2 infection to 4 months due to the increased risk of re-infection with the Omicron variant, particularly for those who had a Delta variant infection in 2021
