Vaccination FAQs

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

Yes. The vaccine is new but the science used to create it has been tested and proven effective for years. The vaccine has met FDA safety and efficacy standards and was made available in the United States through an emergency use authorization.

No. The vaccine is provided at no cost to you.

Yes. People who’ve had COVID-19 can still benefit from the vaccine. If you have an active case on your vaccination date, reschedule for after your isolation period has ended and your symptoms have resolved.

COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. COVID-19 vaccination helps protect adults and children ages 5 years and older from getting sick or severely ill with COVID-19 and helps protect those around them. Some people who are vaccinated against COVID-19 will still get sick and have a vaccine breakthrough infection because no vaccine is 100% effective.

You are not considered to be fully vaccinated until two weeks have passed after your second dose of the Moderna or Prizer vaccine (or until two weeks have passed after your lone dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine). If you are exposed to COVID-19 before the vaccine has had time to become effective, you could still get COVID-19.
