It is recommended that those who have had COVID-19 already should get the vaccine too. They will still be offered the jab in order of the JCVI’s priority list.
Mae hynny oherwydd efallai na fydd imiwnedd naturiol yn hirhoedlog a gallai imiwneiddio gynnig mwy o ddiogelwch. Mae tystiolaeth ragarweiniol bod y brechlynnau yn cynnig gwell amddiffyniad na chael y firws. It is also sometimes difficult to know whether you have actually had COVID-19 unless you have been tested and some of the tests (such as lateral flow tests) are not always 100% accurate.
Llywodraeth arweiniad states that there are no safety concerns in giving jabs to people with “long COVID” either. However, people who are currently unwell with COVID-19 should not receive the vaccine until they have recovered.
