Can I contract COVID-19 from the vaccine?
No. None of the COVID-19 vaccines available in the U.S. contain the live virus that causes COVID-19, so a COVID-19 vaccine cannot make you sick with COVID-19.
After the COVID-19 vaccination, you may experience some side effects, which may feel like the flu and might even affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days. Learn more about what side effects to expect.
