(Ottawa) Canada’s National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) continues to recommend two doses of the vaccine for people who have previously contracted COVID-19.
In a statement released on Thursday, the organization said, “Current data indicate that the immune response following administration of a single dose of anti-Ovidic vaccine in individuals with a history of SARS-CoV-2 infection is similar to those who received Has had two doses of vaccines, but who have no history of infection”.
“However, there are not enough data to measure the long-term effectiveness of a single dose in people who have previously been infected with SARS-CoV-2, particularly with regard to infections caused by the currently circulating concern variants,” said NACI. it is said.
The organization also reminds people who have already contracted the disease that they should wait until they are no longer showing severe symptoms and are no longer contagious before receiving the vaccine.
Earlier this month, the Quebec Immunization Committee recommended a second dose of the vaccine for people who have been previously infected with COVID-19 and who wish to travel abroad.
Until then, Quebec did not recommend this second dose for these people, even though it was possible for them to receive it.
