Do people who are already vaccinated for COVID-19 still need to be tested?

Yes! Vaccination is important in preventing severe COVID-19 disease, but fully vaccinated people can still become infected, be contagious and (especially if elderly or immunocompromised) have more severe disease. Vaccination is not a contraindication for oral antivirals, so early testing of symptomatic patients is important to determine if a patient meets criteria for oral antiviral treatment.
