Stay 6 ft. apart Wear a Mask Wash Hands Often Most Important Get Vaccinated
To stop this pandemic, we need to use all of our prevention tools. Vaccines are one of the most effective tools to protect your health and prevent disease. Vaccines work with your body’s natural defenses so your body will be ready to fight the virus if you are exposed. Taking other steps, like wearing a mask, washing your hands often, and trying to stay at least 6 feet apart away from people you do not live with, will also help stop the spread of COVID-19.
Studies show that COVID-19 vaccines are very effective at keeping you from getting COVID-19. Experts also think that getting a COVID-19 vaccine may help keep you from getting seriously ill even if you get COVID-19. The COVID-19 vaccines cannot give you the disease itself.
The Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are given in a two-shot series. If you are told you need two shots, make sure that you get both of them to be fully protected. The vaccine may cause side effects in some people, like sore muscles, feeling tired, or mild fever. These reactions mean the vaccine is working to help teach your body how to fight COVID-19 if you are exposed. Side effects for most people only lasts a day or two. If you have questions about your health after your shot, please call your provider.
