Frequently Asked Questions

Medical Information

What vaccines are available?

Two COVID-19 vaccines, the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and the Moderna vaccine are available.

Are COVID-19 vaccines safe?

Yes, the vaccine is safe. There are over 70,000 people who participated in the clinical trials, and hundreds of thousands of people have been given the vaccine worldwide so far. The risk of getting COVID far outweighs the risk of the vaccine.

Can I get COVID from these vaccines?

No. The vaccine does not contain live virus, and there is no chance of getting COVID-19 from the vaccine.

How many shots/doses are needed?

Both the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and the Moderna vaccine require two doses. The Pfizer vaccine requires a second dose 21 days after the first vaccine, and the Moderna vaccine requires a second dose 28 days after the first vaccine.

Are the new vaccines effective?

Yes, both the Pfizer and the Moderna vaccine are more than 94% effective.

Will vaccinations cause side effects?

Most people will have pain at the injection site, and some will have fatigue, headache, muscle pains, chills, or diarrhea. Some people will have no side effects at all. If side effects occur, they usually last for less than one day.

After I’m vaccinated, what precautions do I need to continue to take?

After you have been vaccinated, you must continue to wear a mask, wash your hands, and practice social distancing. Please continue to follow these precautions.

Can women who are pregnant or thinking of becoming pregnant be vaccinated?

Please speak with your doctor about whether or not to be vaccinated.
