Vaccine FAQs

  • What are the most common side effects of the vaccine?
    • Any vaccine or medication can cause side effects. You may experience common side effects such as swelling and sore arm where you got the shot along with an overall low-grade fever, chills, tiredness, or headache that goes away within a few days. These symptoms are normal and are a sign that the body is building immunity. Safety is the top priority of the vaccine. Talk with your Bothwell provider about specific concerns you may have.
  • If I’m pregnant, can I get the vaccine?
    • Yes, if you are pregnant, you can choose to be vaccinated. Based on how COVID-19 vaccines work, experts believe they are unlikely to pose a specific risk for pregnant women. Talk with your Bothwell provider to help you decide whether or not to get vaccinated.
  • How does the COVID-19 vaccine work?
    • While the first COVID-19 vaccines are new to people, they are based on science that is more than 30 years old. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines provide our bodies with only part of the genetic code of the COVID virus, not a full weakened or dead virus, like some vaccines. From that code, our bodies produce proteins that are harmless on their own, but they allow our immune systems to produce antibodies in response. Those antibodies will then be able to recognize and attack COVID-19 if you’re exposed and it’s introduced to your body.
  • How long does the protection from the vaccine last?
    • COVID-19 has caused very serious illness and death for many people and their loved ones. While we are unsure how long the vaccine protection lasts for those who are vaccinated, getting a COVID-19 vaccine is a safer choice than risking contracting the virus and giving it to loved ones who may get very sick.
  • I’ve had COVID-19 and recovered. Should I still get the vaccine?
    • Yes. Due to serious health risks with the virus and the possibility of reinfection, it is recommended you should get vaccinated. Ask your Bothwell provider about timing based on how long you’ve been symptom-free.
  • How much does a COVID-19 vaccine cost?
    • The COVID-19 vaccine is completely free of charge to all people living in the United States, regardless of immigration or health insurance status. Please bring your health insurance card and driver’s license or government-issued photo ID to your appointment. If you do not have health insurance, please bring your driver’s license or social security number. We need these documents to file for reimbursement from your insurance company or through the federal government (for uninsured).
  • Can I stop wearing a mask and social distancing after I’ve been fully vaccinated against COVID-19?
    • It depends. Fully vaccinated people can gather indoors without physical distancing or wearing masks with other people who are fully vaccinated. However, mask-wearing, proper hand hygiene, and social distancing are still encouraged after vaccination to protect others not yet vaccinated. The annual flu vaccination is also still recommended.
  • Can I get the vaccine while I’m currently sick with COVID-19?
    • No. If you have symptoms of COVID-19, please wait to be vaccinated until you have recovered from the illness and have met the criteria for discontinuing quarantine. Even if you don’t have symptoms, but tested positive, please wait until your quarantine has ended. This also applies to people who get COVID-19 before their second dose of the vaccine.
  • Can the vaccine make me sick with COVID-19?
    • No. None of the authorized and recommended COVID-19 vaccines contain the live virus that causes COVID-19. This means that a COVID-19 vaccine cannot make you sick with the virus. However, it typically takes a few weeks for the body to build immunity, after vaccination. Therefore, it’s possible a person can be infected with COVID-19 just before or just after vaccination because the vaccine has not had enough time to provide protection.
