What to expect at your vaccination appointment

What to expect at your vaccination appointment

  • You will receive a vaccination card that says which COVID-19 vaccine you were given as well as the date and location it was administered.
  • You should also receive a fact sheet with additional information about the COVID-19 vaccine you are getting. There are fact sheets for each COVID-19 vaccine with information about the risks and benefits of that particular vaccine.
  • Allow time to stay at the vaccination site for 15-30 minutes after getting vaccinated to make sure you don’t have a reaction that needs medical attention.

After you get vaccinated

  • COVID-19 vaccines may cause mild to moderate reactions, including pain or swelling at the injection site, muscle pain, headaches, and mild to moderate fevers. These are normal signs the body is producing an immune response. You may report adverse events following vaccination at https://vaers.hhs.gov/.
  • It takes time to build protection and immunity after getting a vaccine. A person is considered immune two weeks after receiving the second dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
  • If the vaccine you’re getting requires two doses, you should get both doses unless a healthcare provider or doctor tells you not to.
  • If you have not received 2 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine and you have symptoms of COVID-19, you should get tested. 
  • If you are fully vaccinated, you can resume activities that you did prior to the pandemic.
