Some key vax facts

How do the vaccines work?

All COVID-19 vaccines work by teaching your immune system how to recognize and then attack the virus. This ability, known as immunity, helps your body spot the virus as it enters your body, kill it and prevent it from making you very sick.

Can the shot give me coronavirus?

No. The vaccines only contain selected (and safe) parts of the virus and not the active COVID-19 virus itself. So it cannot infect you.

I had COVID-19 and I recovered. Am I immune, or do I need to get vaccinated?

The CDC recommends that you still have the vaccine. Studies have shown that vaccination gives your immunity a boost if you’ve already had COVID-19.
