Vaccinated Canadians who catch COVID-19 can get booster 3 months after positive test: NACI

Uncategorized

according to Canada’s National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI), Individuals who experienced SARS-CoV-2 infection before starting or completing their primary COVID-19 vaccine series may receive their next dose eight weeks after symptoms started or after testing positive (if no symptoms were experienced),” NACI said.

“Individuals who are recommended to receive a booster dose and who experienced SARS-CoV-2 infection after completing their primary series may receive a booster dose three months after symptoms started or after testing positive (if no symptoms were experienced) and provided it is at least six months after completing a primary series.”

NACI suggests that a longer interval between infection and vaccination could result in a better immune response and longer-lasting protection against Omicron and future variants.
