Had COVID? You should still get vaccinated

The best way to protect yourself and your whānau is to get vaccinated and boosted, even if you’ve already had COVID-19. Being vaccinated provides better protection than any immunity you might get from being infected with the virus.

It’s recommended for people of all ages to wait 3 months after testing positive for COVID-19 before getting any COVID-19 vaccination because this can give you better protection and an increased immune response to the vaccine dose.
