Had sore or strep throat for a week. How soon could I get strep throat again?

In brief: Any Time

We build very little natural immunity to strep, so once the antibiotic is out of your system, you can be infected again.

In brief: Anytime

As soon as you come off antibiotics & they clear your system, you become available for a new infection.
Most acquire strep though active or passive exposure to infected saliva, either at home, school or workplace. Exposure and disease is somewhat random unless you have a strep carrier in your extended household.
