Frequently Asked Questions regarding the Covid-19 vaccine:
Q: Is there a vaccine for Covid-19?
A: Yes, there are currently three approved vaccines by the FDA. Moderna, Johnson & Johnson & Pfizer are the manufacturers.
Q: Is it possible to have an allergic reaction to the vaccine?
A: Yes. Any vaccine or drug may cause an allergic reaction. Severe reactions are very rare with the vaccine. If you have a history of severe allergies please speak with your health care provider before receiving the vaccine.
Q: Is it possible for me to contract Covid-19 from the vaccine?
A: No. The vaccine is not a live virus. Any mild reactions, including fever, chills and body aches are a sign that your body’s immune system is reacting positively to the protection from the disease.
Q: Even after having the vaccines will I still need to social distance and wear a mask?
A: Yes. We are still learning about the virus. Until herd immunity is reached with widespread immunization, social distancing, wearing face masks and routinely washing your hands will still be necessary.
Q: How many shots do I need?
A: Both of the currently approved vaccines require two shots to be given within a few weeks apart.
Q: Are the vaccines safe?
A: Yes. No steps were skipped in the production of the approved vaccines. They were tested in clinical trials all over the world.
