Below you'll find answers to common questions we get asked regarding the COVID-19 vaccinations. (Just click on one of the questions to get an answer.)When should individuals receive their second dose of COVID-19 vaccine if they develop active SARS-COV-2 infection after their first COVID vaccine dose? When should individuals with previous COVID-19 infection get vaccinated? What should individuals do if they miss their second COVID vaccine? For individuals who have received the COVID-19 vaccine but sustain a rabies-prone animal bite anytime thereafter, when should they receive post-exposure (PEP) anti-rabies vaccine? Should patients with elevated blood pressure be vaccinated? When is COVID RT-PCR testing warranted for persons who develop symptoms after vaccination? When is the best time to receive other vaccines in relation to receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, and vice-versa? When an individual develops an adverse event after receiving one vaccine platform type (e.g. Oxford/Astrazeneca vaccine), can he/she receive another vaccine from a different platform type vaccine (e.g. Sinovac)?
