  • Pregnant women, lactating women and those who are immunocompromised may take the vaccine; however, consultation with your healthcare provider is recommended.
  • You can be vaccinated if you have tested positive for COVID-19 if you wait until your isolation period is over and your symptoms have significantly improved.

 Who Should Not Be Vaccinated:

  • You should not take the vaccine if you have had severe reactions from previous vaccines or injectable medications.
  • If you have had any other type of vaccination in the last two weeks, you should not be vaccinated against COVID-19 yet. Make a COVID-19 vaccination appointment at least two weeks after you receive any other vaccination.
