Hi Doctors, I’ve tested positive for Covid-19 on 10/5/2021. I underwent home quarantine from 10/5/21 until 19/5/2021 (only mild symptoms which include headache, sore throat, loss both taste and smell senses). I did not take any medication during that period, only Strepsil for my sore throat. After less than a month, all symptoms totally gone.

My question is, can I take vaccine on 8/7/2021? Just received my appointment date through mysejahtera apps.
