Should I get vaccinated if I’ve already had COVID-19?

While millions of people have recovered from COVID-19 and developed temporary immunity, some may wonder why public health experts are still recommending getting vaccinated. As part of Penn State’s “COVID-19 Vaccines: Asked & Answered” series, Matthew Ferrari, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Dynamics, explains that new research suggests that getting vaccinated after recovering from COVID-19 provides stronger and longer-lasting combined protection against future infections than from antibodies generated in response to infection alone.
