You should get vaccinated against COVID-19 even if you already tested positive, according to YKHC’s Chief of Staff Ellen Hodges. “Immunity from the vaccine is likely to last longer than immunity from having the disease and protects you against other variants that can have more severe health consequences,” Dr. Hodges said. “When you are vaccinated, you are unlikely to spread COVID-19 to others in your family and community who may be more vulnerable to the virus.”If you have any questions, speak with your healthcare provider, who is the best person to help you decide if you should get the COVID-19 vaccine.
