Yes, COVID-19 vaccination should be offered to all eligible people, regardless of their history of SARS-CoV-2 infection. Although anecdotal reports indicate that some patients with post-COVID conditions have experienced improvements in their symptoms after COVID-19 vaccination, research is ongoing to establish the extent of this effect, if verified.

For more information about COVID-19 vaccination for patients with post-COVID conditions, see the public health recommendations section of the CDC interim guidance.
