COVID-19 vaccines are not recommended within two weeks of other vaccines.

Due to the severe health risks of COVID-19 and because reinfection is possible, individuals who have previously tested positive can receive the vaccine after 14 days free of symptoms.
Evidence suggests reinfection is uncommon in the 90 days after initial infection. Therefore, people with a recent infection may delay vaccination until the end of that 90-day period, if desired.
