A limited supply of Covid-19 vaccines has led to a slow rollout, and many across the country have been unable to book a slot. How long can you afford to wait for the first or second dose, and how does that change if you are infected with Covid-19 during the wait? For several people, the disease could be mild or moderate if he/she catches the infection between two doses. It would depend on when the exposure took place. The vaccine would be unlikely to have an effect if exposure takes place within one to three weeks of receiving the first dose. The course of the infection would continue but it is most likely that the person may suffer a milder form of disease if he/she is Covid-positive three weeks after getting the first vaccine shot.
