I have had Covid-19, do I still need the vaccine?

The answer is ‘Yes’

Current data shows that people who have recovered from COVID-19 start to lose their immunity over time. This means that the body does not retain the protective antibodies that were produced against COVID-19 during the infection stage. It is therefore possible that an individual may contract COVID-19 after they have recovered from it after a period of time.

In Gibraltar, the COVID-19 vaccine  will therefore be offered to all eligible adults even if they have had COVID-19.
