Question: Do I have to wait to get vaccinated if I’ve tested positive for COVID-19?
Answer: People with COVID-19 can get vaccinated once they have recovered from their illness and are no longer on isolation.
If you’ve been exposed: Follow the isolation/quarantine instructions until you can be tested and receive test results.
If you need to be tested: Find options on the Get Tested page. Please note: Appointments are required at most places due to high demand.
