FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

Do I need to keep wearing a mask after I get vaccinated?

Vaccinated people are not required to wear face masks when participating in gatherings unless they are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. MDHHS recommends that fully vaccinated people continue to wear a mask and practice social distancing when in the following settings included here.

 

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

No. None of the vaccines contain the live virus that causes COVID-19 so a COVID-19 vaccine cannot make you sick with COVID-19.

 

Will the COVID-19 vaccination protect me from getting sick with COVID-19?

Yes. COVID-19 vaccination works by teaching your immune system how to recognize and fight the virus that causes COVID-19, and this protects you from getting sick with COVID-19.

 

Is the COVID-19 vaccine safe?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Emergency Use Authorizations (EUA) for two COVID-19 vaccines which have been shown to be safe and effective as determined by data from the manufacturers and findings from large clinical trials. These data demonstrate that the known and potential benefits of this vaccine outweigh the known and potential harms of becoming infected with the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID 19).
