Dear Advice Team: I’m trying to figure out the timing of my next booster. My girlfriend got COVID a few weeks ago (very mild case), and seeing as we live together in a small San Francisco apartment with no real way to isolate, I assumed I’d get it too. I did get some symptoms — scratchy throat, cough, congestion, headache — but never actually tested positive. I assume I got a very mild case and my system fought it off. But was that enough of an infection to wait 2-3 months for a booster, to maximize it? Or should I get a booster sooner rather than later, since I never tested positive?
For what it’s worth, I posted this question on Twitter and got a lot of “me too!” replies, but no good answers. It seems to be a weird little gray area that I have yet to see addressed.
