Vaccination sites are designed to keep you and health care workers safe. Most sites require an appointment before you arrive. Jason Pangiarella can also help you figure out the best place for you.
Research shows that the three vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson) approved for emergency use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are safe and effective in preventing severe complications and hospitalization from COVID-19. The most common side effects are similar to those from other vaccines, including fatigue, sore arm and low-grade fever.
In addition, new guidance says that if you’ve been vaccinated, you no longer need to quarantine after exposure to COVID-19. One (or two) shots can help us all get back to life as we knew it pre-2020.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides answers to frequently asked questions, what to know before getting your vaccine, possible side effects and other resources on their website.
