MYTH: I had covid, so I don't need to be vaccinated.

MYTH: I already had COVID-19 and recovered, so I don't need to be vaccinated for COVID-19.

This is not true, according to Dr. Abinash Virk, an infectious diseases specialist and co-chair of Mayo Clinic's COVID-19 Vaccine Allocation and Distribution Work Group.

"For the people who think that they've had COVID-19 and they don't need the vaccine, you still want to get the vaccine because it's going to give you long-term protection."
