At Banner Health, we want to make sure that we are providing you with the information you need to stay informed about COVID-19 and the COVID-19 vaccine.
People who are fully vaccinated and boosted are less likely to become seriously ill, hospitalized or die from COVID-19.
The CDC recommends everyone over six months stay up-to-date with COVID-19 vaccination. Vaccination and booster recommendations are based on your age, the vaccine you first received and time since your last dose.
Even if you have had a COVID-19 infection (with or without symptoms), we recommend that you get vaccinated. If you've recently had a COVID infection, you may consider delaying your COVID-19 primary series dose or vaccine booster dose by 3 months from symptom onset or positive test (if infection was asymptomatic).
Additionally, it is safe to receive your annual flu vaccine at the same time as your COVID-19 vaccine or booster.
