What should be done if a patient scheduled for vaccination is exposed to COVID-19 and quarantined or is isolated for suspected or confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection?

In general, the people scheduled for COVID-19 vaccination who are exposed to SARS-CoV-2 virus and quarantined should reschedule vaccination after their quarantine period has ended in order to avoid the risk of exposing vaccinators to the virus.

People diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2 infection before a scheduled vaccination should defer vaccination until after recovery and the end of the isolation period to avoid the risk of exposing vaccinators to the virus.
