A new finding shows that a prior COVID-19 infection does not protect you as well as getting the vaccine.
CDC researchers looked at more than 7,000 adults hospitalized with COVID-19.
Researchers say unvaccinated patients who recovered from COVID-19 were five times more likely to test positive.
That result is compared to those who received the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine and had no history of a coronavirus infection.
