How soon after having COVID - vaccination?


Recommended Posts

From everything I'm finding online, the official recs seem to say that it's safe to get vaccinated, basically, as soon as the quarantine/isolation is over. (Unless you get the antibody infusion -- then it's 90 days.)

But I thought I remembered the recommendation being to wait. Like, if your body has antibodies from having the virus, then putting two doses of vaccine right on top of that was...too much? Risky? 

Can anyone help me out? Am I misremembering?

They have definitely changed the recommendation.  It used to be 3 months.  I think personally I would wait until antibodies were gone. Although there is also evidence that if you had it you don't need it at all.  Here is one article:

I'm not sure how long but someone I know got it a couple of months after covid and her body is reacting like she has covid again and is really struggling.  I would want to wait quite a bit if it was me
