How long do I need to wait to get a vaccine or booster after having COVID?

According to the CDC, you may receive a COVID-19 vaccine or booster as soon as you are released from isolation. If your healthcare provider recommends you wait a certain timeframe before receiving a COVID-19 vaccine or booster, you must submit a medical waiver for a temporary exemption.

Am I required to get a COVID-19 vaccine booster?

Per New York State Gov. Hochul’s executive order, all State University of New York (SUNY) in-person students must receive a COVID-19 booster once eligible.
