About The Shot

Answers to Your Questions


Can I get COVID-19 from the vaccine?

No. None of the COVID-19 vaccines contain the live virus that causes COVID-19 so a COVID-19 vaccine cannot make you sick with COVID-19.


What are the side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine?

Most people do not have serious problems after being vaccinated. However, your arm may be sore, red, or warm to the touch. These symptoms usually go away on their own within a week. Some people report getting a headache or fever when getting a vaccine. These side effects are a sign that your immune system is doing exactly what it is supposed to do. It is working and building up protection to disease.

Learn more about what side effects to expect and get helpful tips on how to reduce pain and discomfort after your vaccination.



Was the COVID-19 vaccine developed too quickly?

No. COVID-19 vaccines were tested in large clinical trials to make sure they meet safety standards. Many people were recruited to participate in these trials to see how the vaccines offers protection to people of different ages, races, and ethnicities, as well as those with different medical conditions.



Is it safe to get the COVID-19 vaccine if I want to have a baby?

Yes. People who want to get pregnant in the future may receive the COVID-19 vaccine. There is currently no evidence that antibodies formed from COVID-19 vaccination cause any problems with pregnancy, including the development of the placenta. In addition, there is no evidence suggesting that fertility problems are a side effect of ANY vaccine. People who are trying to become pregnant now or who plan to try in the future may receive the COVID-19 vaccine when it becomes available to them.



Do I have to get two shots?

Yes. Depending on the specific vaccine you get, a second shot 3-4 weeks after your first shot is needed to get the most protection the vaccine has to offer against this serious disease.



Do I have to pay for my vaccine?

No. Vaccine doses will be given to the you at no cost.
