What to Expect After Getting a Vaccine for COVID-19

According to the CDC, you should keep in mind that, after getting a COVID-19 vaccination, it will take a few weeks for your body to build immunity. As a result, the CDC says it’s possible that you could become infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 just before or after being vaccinated.

 

What are the possible side effects of the vaccine?

According to the CDC, a vaccine for COVID-19 can cause mild side effects after the first or second dose, including:

  • Pain, redness or swelling where the shot was given
  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Muscle pain
  • Chills
  • Joint pain
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Feeling unwell
  • Swollen lymph nodes

After getting a vaccination for COVID-19, your medical professional may decide to monitor you to see if you have an immediate reaction. According to the CDC, most side effects happen within the first three days after vaccination and typically last only one to two days.

They also state that, if you are exposed to COVID-19 and you start showing symptoms more than three days after getting vaccinated or the symptoms last more than two days, it’s important to get tested and self-isolate.

If you experience side effects or symptoms of COVID-19, please consult with your medical professional on what next-steps are necessary for you to take.

 

Can a COVID-19 vaccine make me sick with COVID-19?

According to the CDC’s website, none of the authorized and recommended COVID-19 vaccines in the United States contain the live virus that causes COVID-19.

These vaccines teach our immune systems how to recognize and fight the virus that causes COVID-19, and it typically takes a few weeks for the body to build immunity. Sometimes this process can cause symptoms such as fever, but this is normal and a way of knowing that your body is building protection against the virus that causes COVID-19. Learn more about how COVID-19 vaccines work.

However, if the vaccine has not had enough time to provide protection, the CDC tells us it’s possible you could be infected with COVID-19 just before or just after vaccination and still get sick.
