About the COVID-19 vaccines

  • Currently two types of vaccines are available: mRNA (Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna – two doses) viral vector (Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen – one dose) vaccine.
  • All three vaccines teach your body how to make antibodies to spike protein unique to the COVID-19 virus, so you are protected against infections.
  • Two weeks after your last dose, your immune system will be able to recognize and protect against COVID-19.
  • Regardless of which vaccine you receive, all authorized vaccines will help protect you against serious illnesses caused by COVID-19.

Vaccine side effects

  • Minor side effects may occur for one to two days and are normal signs that your body is building protection.
  • Common side effects may include pain at the injection site, tiredness, headache, muscle and joint pain or chills and fever.
  • The vaccine does not contain the virus so it cannot give you COVID-19.
  • Our C are available to answer your questions and give guidance on over-the-counter medications to treat side effects.

How to prepare for your vaccine

  • Prior to your vaccination, make sure you are well rested and hydrated.
  • It is not recommended you take over-the-counter medicine such as ibuprofen, aspirin, or acetaminophen before vaccination for the purpose of trying to prevent vaccine-related side effects.
  • You may take these medications after receiving your vaccine to help with side effects. Wear a loose-fitting shirt with short sleeves to allow access to your arm.
