Key takeaways: The CDC recommends booster shots — even in people who had a breakthrough case of COVID-19. If you have active symptoms of a COVID-19 infection, you shouldn't get a booster shot until your symptoms have fully resolved.

Common questions
Does the COVID-19 shot work if we need a booster shot?
If we need a booster shot, are the vaccines working? Yes. COVID-19 vaccines are working well to prevent severe illness, hospitalization, and death. However, public health experts are starting to see reduced protection over time against mild and moderate disease, especially among certain populations.
Should I get the COVID-19 vaccine if I have recovered from COVID-19?
If I have already had COVID-19 and recovered, do I still need to get vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine? Yes, you should be vaccinated regardless of whether you already had COVID-19 because: Research has not yet shown how long you are protected from getting COVID-19 again after you recover from COVID-19. Vaccination helps protect you even if you’ve already had COVID-19.
Can you get COVID-19 after you just had it?
Reinfection with the virus that causes COVID-19 means a person was infected, recovered, and then later became infected again. After recovering from COVID-19, most individuals will have some protection from repeat infections. However, reinfections do occur after COVID-19.
Can I get reinfected with COVID-19 after I have been vaccinated in Kentucky?
These findings suggest that among persons with previous SARS-CoV-2 infection, full vaccination provides additional protection against reinfection. Among previously infected Kentucky residents, those who were not vaccinated were more than twice as likely to be reinfected compared with those with full vaccination.
