What happens after I get the vaccine?

Even after you get the vaccine, you may still be able to spread COVID-19. So, keep following safety steps to protect yourself and your loved ones:

  • Wear a mask or face covering

  • Stay away from others if you’re sick

  • Wash your hands often

  • Stay 6 feet apart from people you don’t live with

  • Avoid crowds

  • Keep gatherings small and outdoors when possible

After getting a COVID-19 vaccine, you might have side effects. This often means the vaccine is working to keep your body healthy.
