By | September 23, 2021

The CDC released guidelines for who should and shouldn’t receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Most people, even some with serious allergies, will be able to get the vaccine. If you have concerns, you should talk to your provider about whether the vaccine is right for you.

  1. If you received passive antibody therapy treatment for COVID-19, then the CDC recommends you to defer vaccination for 90 days after treatment.
  2. If you received another vaccine in the last 14 days, then the CDC recommends you to defer vaccination for 14 days after receipt of the vaccine.
  3. If you had a positive test for COVID-19, or your doctor told you that you had COVID-19, then the CDC recommends you to defer vaccination for 90 days after symptoms have resolved.
  4. If you have been exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19, then the CDC recommends you to defer vaccination until after your quarantine period ends.
  5. If you do not feel well, then the CDC recommends you to defer vaccination until after symptoms resolve.
  6. If you have a known severe allergy to any of the COVIS-19 vaccine ingredients, then the CDC recommends you to defer vaccination indefinitely. You should consult with your medical provider or an allergy specialist for more testing and advice.
  7. If you have a severe allergic reaction to the first dose, then the CDC recommends you to defer vaccination indefinitely. You should consult with your medical provider or an allergy specialist for more testing and advice.
  8. Vaccinated persons with exposure to a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 case are not required to quarantine if they meet all the following criteria:
    Are fully vaccinated at least 2 weeks following final dose (e.g. after second dose of the vaccine series.
    Within 3 months of vaccination, following receipt of the final dose of the series. This aligns with guidelines for person with natural immunity.

Are asymptomatic following exposure, have not had symptoms of COVID-19 (e.g. fever, cough, shortness of breath, sudden loss of smell and taste, etc.)
As always, you should talk to your healthcare provider about your specific situation to see what it best for you. Keep in mind that recommendations may change.
