Key Things to Know about COVID-19 Vaccines:
Everyone 5 years of age and older is now recommended to get a COVID-19 vaccination. Get a COVID 19 vaccine as soon as you can. Widespread vaccination is a critical tool to help stop the pandemic. Vaccines are now more widely accessible in the U.S. The federal government is providing the vaccine free of charge to all people living in the United States, regardless of their immigration or health insurance status.
What You Need to Know:
- COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective
- After COVID-19 vaccination, you may have some side effects. These are normal signs that your body is building protection. The side effects from COVID-19 vaccination, such as tiredness, headache, or chills, may affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days.

- People who have been fully vaccinated can start to do some things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic
- It typically takes two weeks after vaccination for the body to build protection (immunity) against the virus that causes COVID-19. You are not fully vaccinated until 2 weeks after the 2nd dose of a two-dose vaccine or two weeks after a one-dose vaccine.
