Central Utah Public Health Department says that a “COVID-19 vaccination provides stronger and less variable antibody response than natural SARS-CoV-2 infection. Getting a vaccine after a COVID-19 infection provides a turbo-boost of immunity, which may be particularly helpful against new variants. Even if you’ve had a confirmed previous infection, getting vaccinated can dramatically increase your protection. Don’t give away your shot!” Learn more at https://www.facebook.com/Central-Utah-Public-Health-Department-CUPHD-198396823523542/
