Additional Information & Guidance
What are some of the potential side effects?
What are the ingredients in the COVID vaccine?
How do I know this vaccine is safe, since it was just developed? How can I trust the approval process?
Should someone with allergies get this vaccine?
Does the second dose have to be exactly 21 days (Pfizer) or 28 days (Moderna) after the first dose?
If I have already tested positive for COVID, can I get the vaccine?
Yes, per CDC guidance current evidence suggests that reinfection with the virus that causes COVID-19 is uncommon in the 90 days after initial infection. Therefore, people with a recent infection may delay vaccination until the end of that 90-day period if desired. However, you can get the vaccine as soon as you have fully recovered from your time in isolation.
Can pregnant or nursing individuals receive the vaccine?
It is important to know that being pregnant puts a woman at increased risk of more severe COVID-19 with an increase in ICU admission and ventilator use when compared to non-pregnant women in the same age group. The bottom line – it’s a personal decision, so we recommend pregnant individuals contact their provider to discuss their individual situation.
