Nobody can deny the challenges the world was faced with in regards to the COVID 19 pandemic; everything from the way we work, live, and learn has been turned on its axis but thankfully things are finally starting to look up and the vaccine has a lot to do with it. Currently, 195 million COVID 19 vaccination doses have been given in the United States and 76.7 million people are fully vaccinated, accounting for roughly 23.4-percent of the population. As more of the general public is being allowed to vaccinate you might be curious about the process. Here are some key things to know about COVID-19 vaccines.
Key Things to Know
- COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective.
- You may have side effects after vaccination, but these are normal.
- It typically takes two weeks after you are fully vaccinated for the body to build protection (immunity) against the virus that causes COVID-19.
- Vaccines will become widely available, in the coming months. Find a COVID-19 vaccine.
- People who have been fully vaccinated can start to do some things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic.
What We are Still Learning
- We are still learning how well vaccines prevent you from spreading the virus that causes COVID-19 to others, even if you do not have symptoms.
- We’re also still learning how long COVID-19 vaccines protect people.
- We are still learning how many people have to be vaccinated against COVID-19 before most people can be considered protected (population immunity).
- We are still learning how effective the vaccines are against new variants of the virus that causes COVID-19.
- COVID-19 vaccines are effective at keeping you from getting COVID-19.
- After you are fully vaccinated, you may be able to start doing some things you had stopped doing because of the pandemic.
- Studies show that COVID-19 vaccines are effective at keeping you from getting COVID-19. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine will also help keep you from getting seriously ill even if you do get COVID-19.
COVID-19 vaccination is an important tool to help us get back to normal. COVID-19 vaccines teach our immune systems how to recognize and fight the virus that causes COVID-19. It typically takes two weeks after vaccination for the body to build protection (immunity) against the virus that causes COVID-19. That means it is possible a person could still get COVID-19 before or just after vaccination and then get sick because the vaccine did not have enough time to provide protection.
