Are the COVID-19 vaccines safe?
The FDA has issued Emergency Use Authorization for the available COVID-19 vaccines, which means that although these vaccines have undergone some testing and approval processes, they have not yet undergone standard testing and FDA approval.
Can I get COVID-19 after vaccination?
As a result, it’s possible to contract COVID-19 after vaccination in between your first and second doses or if you’re exposed too soon after receiving your final dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
I have recently tested positive for COVID-19. When will I be able to receive it?
You can get vaccinated once you have fully recovered from a COVID-19 illness. If you received treatment with convalescent plasma, then the CDC recommends waiting 90 days.
