COVID-19 Vaccine Facts

  • The vaccine will help keep you from getting COVID-19.
  • All vaccines available in the U.S. have been shown to be highly effective at preventing COVID-19.
  • Getting a booster has proven effective at further mitigating COVID-19.
  • The vaccine does not make you sick. Some people have had a sore arm (where the shot was given), as well as tiredness, headache, muscle pain, chills, fever and nausea; particularly after the second shot.
  • Even if you’ve had COVID-19, you should still get the vaccine. If you are currently ill with COVID-19, you should wait until you are well before getting the vaccine.
  • The vaccine is free to everyone in the United States.
