I Had COVID 19 Should I Still Get the Vaccine ? and More Questions and Answers including PDF ATAGI Report.

Hi This Is Viki From Sydney CBD Repair Centre. Today NSW Health Posted a great information about covid 19 vaccine for people who had covid 19 before.

Here is the post. Let’s have a closer look at it.

If you’ve had COVID-19 before, you still need to get vaccinated.

The protection someone gets after having COVID-19 is different for each person.
Experts around the world are currently looking at how long any natural immunity may last.
If you were unvaccinated or only had one dose before getting COVID-19, it’s recommended you wait up to 6 months before getting vaccinated.
Your doctor can complete a ‘NSW COVID-19 vaccine medical contraindication form’ that will give you a temporary exemption.
If you need or want to get vaccinated earlier than six months, talk to your doctor.

And here is another great resource.
If you REALLY want to know why it’s recommended you wait 6 months, read the latest report from Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (instead of, for example saying you should get an antibody test, etc)

Can I get the COVID-19 vaccine if I have already had COVID-19?

If you’ve had COVID-19 and recovered,

Even if you have already had COVID-19, you should still have the COVID-19 vaccine to help protect against getting COVID-19 again or passing it onto someone else. Check with your doctor about how long you should wait after recovery before getting a COVID-19 vaccination.

Do I have natural immunity to COVID-19 after recovering?

If you have already had COVID-19 and recovered, you may have some natural immunity to contracting the disease again. However because this virus is new, it’s not clear how long natural immunity might last.

Do I need the vaccine if I had Covid?

But the recommendation is to get vaccinated, even if you’ve had a prior infection with COVID-19, because of that more robust, higher level of antibody response that most people get with vaccination as opposed to natural infection.

If you haven’t had your vaccine yet, book an appointment now

Clinical guidance on use of COVID-19 vaccine in Australia in 2021

People with a past SARS-CoV-2 infection

Past infection with SARS-CoV-2 is not a contraindication to vaccination; however, it is recommended that vaccination be deferred for up to six months after the acute illness in those who have had PCR-confirmed SARSCoV-2 infection. Evidence suggests that past infection reduces the risk of reinfection for at least 6 months.58
Individuals who have prolonged symptoms from COVID-19 beyond six months can be vaccinated on a case-bycase basis.
In the phase II/III trial of Comirnaty, the vaccine was administered to a small number of people with serological
evidence of previous SARS-CoV-2 infection. There were no specific safety issues reported among these
individuals. A similarly high overall efficacy was shown when participants who had had previous SARS-CoV-2
infection were also included for analysis, but a separate estimate of efficacy for these individuals was not
In the phase III trial of Spikevax, a small number of participants had evidence of current or prior SARS-CoV-2
infection based on RT-PCR or serology testing (n = 680).59 Adverse reactions among this population occurred at
lower or similar rates compared to individuals without prior SARS-CoV-2 infection and no specific safety
concerns were observed.54 A separate analysis of vaccine efficacy in this subgroup was not performed (only one
previously infected individual in the placebo group subsequently developed COVID-19 in the study period).
54,59 In
the pooled analysis of phase II/III trials of COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca, 718 participants (3%) were found to
be seropositive, and the safety profile was consistent across participants with or without prior evidence of SARSCoV-2 infection at baseline. Seropositive participants had increased anti-spike antibody responses after the first
dose, but no further increase after the second.60
Serological testing or other testing to detect current or previous infection with SARS-CoV-2 before vaccination is
neither necessary nor recommended before vaccination.
