The COVID-19 vaccine will reduce the risk of suffering from the new type of Coronavirus disease as known as COVID-19.
Please be aware that the vaccine is not completely effective like all other medicines. It can take a few weeks for your body to build up protection from the vaccine. There is always a chance of getting infected by Coronavirus even with the vaccine; however, the vaccine lessens the severity of any infection. A dose will reduce the chance of being seriously ill and reduce the risk of death due to Coronavirus.
This vaccine does not give you COVID-19 infection, but you still need to follow the health instructions in your workplace and in public areas, such as wearing a mask and keeping a distance from others.
The vaccine has some side effects as the other vaccines/medicines, but not everyone gets them.
The most likely side effects that you may experience from the vaccine:
- Pain at the injection site
- Redness and hardness of the skin at the injection site
- Muscle aches or pain
- Joint aches or pain
- Fatigue (tiredness)
- Underarm gland swelling on the side of vaccination
If you are currently pregnant or planning to get pregnant or your partner is planning to get pregnant; please see your doctor before getting vaccinated.
Any patient receiving testing, screening, or treatment services is advised to seek follow up care from his or her primary care physician.
