Answers to Frequently Asked Questions


What to Expect After Getting a COVID-19 Vaccination
You may have some side effects, which are normal signs that your body is building protection. These side effects may affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days. If you get a COVID-19 vaccine and you think you might be having a severe allergic reaction after leaving the vaccination site, seek immediate medical care by calling 911.

Vaccine Adverse Effects Reporting System (VAERS)
The Vaccine Adverse Effects Reporting System is co-managed by the FDA and CDC to detect rare, unusual or new adverse effects from vaccines. It’s a passive reporting system, relying on individuals to report adverse effects they experience from vaccines.
