DEBUNKING THE MYTHS
Straight Shooting About the Shots
There are a lot of opinions and beliefs about the COVID-19 vaccine, and many of them are simply untrue. Here are a few simple answers to give you a clear picture of the truth:
Will the COVID-19 vaccine make me sick with COVID-19?
None of the authorized COVID-19 vaccines available in the United States contain live COVID-19 virus and cannot make you sick with COVID-19. Some people experience discomfort in the days following their immunization, which can be an indication the body’s immune system is working with the vaccine to develop antibodies. Some common side-effects include: Pain, redness or soreness where the shot was given; fatigue; chills and fever.
Will I test positive for COVID-19 after getting the COVID-19 vaccine?
Neither the recently authorized and recommended vaccines nor the other COVID-19 vaccines currently in clinical trials in the United States can cause you to test positive on viral tests.
I already had COVID-19 and recovered – do I still need to get vaccinated?
Re-infection with COVID-19 is possible. You need to be vaccinated regardless of your COVID-19 history. You may get the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as your isolation period is over and symptoms are gone. You should not get a vaccine while sick or during the isolation period to avoid exposing others.

COVID-19 vaccination teaches your immune system how to recognize and fight of the COVID-19 virus.
