I'm vaccinated. Now what?
Side effects. You may have pain or swelling at the injection site. You may also feel tired and have a fever, chills, and headache. You'll feel better within a few days. Remember, mild side effects are normal as your body builds protection against COVID-19.
Immunity. You'll reach a maximum protection level of 95% within two weeks after your second dose.
Masking and distancing. The vaccine reduces your chances of becoming sick from COVID-19, but we still don't know if the vaccine prevents us from spreading the virus. Until we know for sure, you should continue to mask and socially distance after you're vaccinated.
