COVID-19 vaccination will help protect you from getting COVID-19. You may have some side effects, which are normal signs that your body is building protection. These side effects may affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days. Some people have no side effects.
Serious side effects that could cause a long-term health problem are extremely unlikely following any vaccination, including COVID-19 vaccination. Vaccine monitoring has historically shown that side effects generally happen within six weeks of receiving a vaccine dose. For this reason, the FDA required each of the authorized COVID-19 vaccines to be studied for at least two months (eight weeks) after the final dose.
Common side effects on the arm where you got the shot:
Common side effects throughout the rest of your body:
A second dose is necessary as part of the primary vaccine series for those who receive a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. You must complete a primary vaccine series (2 doses of Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine or 1 dose of Johnson & Johnson (J&J)/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine) to be considered fully vaccinated.
If you need a second shot of a 2-dose COVID-19 vaccine, you should get your second dose as close to the recommended 3-week or 4-week interval as possible.
Individuals who received the primary vaccine of Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna should wait at least 6 months. Individuals that received the Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine should wait at least 2 months.
At your first vaccination appointment, you will receive a CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record card that tells you what COVID-19 vaccine you received, the date you received it, and where you received it. You will need to bring your Vaccination Record Card with you to your appointment if you need another shot of COVID-19 vaccine.
