Covid 19 vaccination and boosters will offer you protection against serious illness with Covid 19 infection
If you work in healthcare, you are at high risk of being exposed to COVID-19. It is important to keep up-to-date with your COVID-19 vaccines, even if you are already vaccinated or you have had COVID-19. This is because the protection you got from your previous vaccines or from a COVID-19 infection may weaken over time. Boosters increase your protection from COVID-19 and also protect the people you care for every day
You should get your booster at least 4 months after your last COVID-19 vaccine. If you have had COVID-19, you should wait at least 4 months after your symptoms started or after you tested positive before getting your booster.
