About the COVID-19 vaccines

  • Currently two mRNA vaccines are available: Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna (both have two doses).
  • All vaccines teach your body how to make antibodies to the spike protein unique to the COVID-19 virus so you are protected against infection.
  • Two weeks after your last dose, you will be protected against serious illness caused by COVID-19.

Vaccine side effects

  • Minor side effects are normal signs that your body is building protection.
  • Common side effects may include pain at the injection site, tiredness, headache, muscle and joint pain or chills and fever.
  • The vaccine does not contain the virus so it cannot give you COVID-19.

How to prepare for your vaccine

  • Prior to your vaccination, make sure you are well rested and hydrated.
  • It is not recommended you take over-the-counter medicine such as ibuprofen, aspirin or acetaminophen before vaccination for the purpose of trying to prevent vaccine-related side effects.
  • You may take these medications after receiving your vaccine to help with side effects
  • Wear a loose-fitting shirt with short sleeves to allow access to your arm.

Guidelines for those fully vaccinated

  • You may gather indoors with other fully vaccinated people.
  • Also, you no longer need to get tested before or after domestic travel, or to self-quarantine after domestic travel.
  • Continue to wear a mask and social distance in public to protect those who have not yet been vaccinated. 
  • While the risk is low, if you experience symptoms of COVID-19, isolate from others, and contact your health care provider.

We'll help keep you informed about the COVID-19 vaccine.
