Does the covid vaccine affect pregnancy?

Experts believe the vaccine is unlikely to pose a risk for people who are pregnant. However, there are currently limited data on the safety of COVID-19 vaccines in pregnant people. If you are pregnant, the CDC does state that pregnant people are more likely to get severely ill with COVID-19 vs someone who is not pregnant – not from the vaccine, but if they were to contract the actual virus.

Is it safe to get my child vaccinated?

The CDC states, “Yes. Studies show that COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. Like adults, children may have some side effects after COVID-19 vaccination. These side effects may affect their ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days. Children 12 years and older are now eligible to get vaccinated against COVID-19.”

Does the covid vaccine make you immune?

Like any vaccine, it does not make you fully immune to the virus. Over the course of a few weeks, the body will build immunity against the virus which will help give an extra layer of protection and less chance to contract the virus – but not 100%.

Can a COVID-19 vaccine make me sick with COVID-19?

The CDC states, “No. None of the authorized and recommended COVID-19 vaccines or COVID-19 vaccines currently in development in the United States contain the live virus that causes COVID-19. This means that a COVID-19 vaccine cannot make you sick with COVID-19.”

How does the covid vaccine work?

When the vaccine is introduced to your immune system, it will work with your immune system so your body will be ready to fight the virus if you are exposed.

Does the covid vaccine stop the spread of covid?

It can help slow the spread but how much is currently unknown. Scientists 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.

Is the covid vaccine FDA approved?

There is no U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The FDA has authorized the emergency use of the COVID-19 Vaccine to prevent COVID-19 in individuals 12 years of age and older under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).

Is the covid vaccine safe?

There has been careful testing and continuous monitoring of the vaccine. All currently authorized and recommended COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective, and the CDC does not recommend one vaccine over another.

Is the covid vaccine free?

FDA-authorized COVID-19 vaccines are being distributed for free by states and local communities.

Does the covid test hurt?

The test may be uncomfortable to some people, but it is over very quickly. However, newer tests use a type of swab that is much shorter in length but just as effective. The test you receive may depend on the availability of these different swabs.
