Will I have a “hyperimmune” response if I am exposed to current or new variants of SARS-CoV-2 after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine?


A: No. There is no evidence of a hyperimmune response in COVID-19 vaccinated people later exposed to the virus. 👉🏽 TL;DR: Exposure to SARS-CoV-2 after having received a COVID-19 vaccine does not result in an exaggerated or dangerous immune response. Hundreds of millions of people globally have now received one of the approved COVID19 vaccines.

How do I respectfully share my vaccine enthusiasm with a hesitant-but-still-open-minded loved one?
