Between December 2020 and March 2021, we measured anti-SARS-CoV-2 IgG titres among 725 Israeli hospital workers vaccinated against COVID-19. Infection post-dose 1 vaccination did not increase IgG titres, and individuals infected post-dose 1 had IgG levels comparable to never-infected individuals who received a single dose, lower than fully vaccinated, never-infected individuals. This suggests dose 2, currently not offered to those infected post-dose 1, may be required in these individuals. Larger studies should confirm whether individuals infected post-dose 1 need the second.
