Should I get the COVID-19 vaccine even if I've already had COVID-19?

The answer is yes, and Dr. Michael Gardam explains why.

"So that's an interesting research question in that the world doesn't quite know the answer to that yet because we are busy studying it right now. But that being said, the official guidance is, you should get vaccinated whether or not you had COVID-19. So even if you had proven COVID-19 you should still go through vaccination. The thinking there is that the vaccine isn't going to hurt you and if you didn't develop a really strong immune response from the illness, lets say you had very mild symptoms, then the vaccine is going to definitely jump-start your bodies immune system."
