The Coordinator of the COVID-19 VaccinatiON Unit, Dr. Keevian Burnette, has addressed concerns regarding how soon an individual can get vaccinated after recovering from COVID-19.
Speaking recently, Dr. Burnette insisted that people with COVID-19 who have symptoms should wait to be vaccinated until they have recovered from their illness. He noted that people who got COVID-19 in the past could wait until 3-months to get the vaccine.
He stated that “New information emerging that says that once you have recovered from COVID-19, and you have no symptoms, you can get your COVID vaccine.”
Dr. Burnette added that although it’s not applied on the island, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, persons can mix and match vaccines. He then explained that when taking the booster, you can take an mRNA vaccine and that the body has enhanced memory to any form to which the virus may plague your immune system.
