About Vaccination

  • To save the world, we have to save ourselves first from this COVID-19 pandemic which starts with protecting ourselves and our loved ones by being fully vaccinated against coronavirus, if eligible.

  • Vaccines help our body build up immunity to the virus without us having to get the virus.

  • Typically, it takes your body a few weeks to develop immunity after receiving the vaccination.

  • COVID-19 vaccines do not give you COVID-19. While your body is building immunity you may experience side effects.

  • If you received a dose of J&J/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine, everyone ages 18 years and older should get a booster dose of either Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna (mRNA COVID-19 vaccines) at least 2 months after the first dose.

  • You are not considered fully vaccinated until two weeks after your second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, or two weeks after a single-dose Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine.

  • After your booster dose, you are considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks following your booster.

COVID-19 Vaccines Are Considered Safe And Effective

  • Wearing masks and staying 6 feet apart from others helps to reduce your chance of being exposed to the virus or spreading it to others, but these measures are not enough. Vaccines helps to boost your immune system to fight the virus if you are exposed. 

  • A growing body of evidence suggests that fully vaccinated people are less likely to be infected without showing symptoms (called an asymptomatic infection) and potentially less likely to spread the virus that causes COVID-19 to others. Studies and investigation continue.
