Vaccine MythBusters: Know the Facts!

It's likely you've heard claims about COVID-19 vaccines on social media or from the people in your life. Knowing what is true about vaccines, and what isn’t, is crucial to community and business recovery. Over the next few days, we’ll bust some myths that exist about the COVID-19 vaccine and share facts that should be shared widely.

 

❌ MYTH:  I’ve already been diagnosed with COVID-19, so I don’t need to receive the vaccine. 

✔️ Fact: If you have already had COVID-19, there’s evidence that you can still benefit from the vaccine.

Due to the severe health risks associated with COVID-19, and because re-infection and transmission to others is possible, people may be advised to get a COVID-19 vaccine even if they have been sick with COVID-19 before. At this time, experts don’t know how long someone is protected from getting sick again after recovering from COVID-19. The immunity someone gains from having an infection, called natural immunity, varies from person to person. Some early evidence suggests natural immunity may not last very long.
