If there was an outbreak of a disease and you just had the vaccine, would you take it again ? If you finished all the schedule ?

In brief: Depends

Depending upon the disease you are concerned about, recovery from the infection often confers immunity, so that taking a vaccine again would be unnecessary.
There are, however, infections to which one does not develop an immune reaction with acute infection, and then you might need the vaccine (but that is very unusual). Tell us what you are referring to. Wish you better.
