Are COVID-19 vaccines safe?

All currently authorized COVID-19 vaccines have gone through rigorous studies to ensure they are safe and effective.

How do COVID-19 vaccines work?

COVID-19 vaccines help our bodies develop immunity to the virus that causes COVID-19 without us having to get the illness. It typically takes two weeks for the body to produce antibodies after vaccination. Therefore, it is possible that a person could be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 just before or just after vaccination and then get sick because the vaccine did not have enough time to provide protection.

What is the latest recommendation for people who were previously vaccinated?

Everyone aged 5 years and older should get 1 updated COVID-19 vaccine, at least two months after getting the last dose of any COVID-19 vaccine. People who are moderately or severely immunocompromised should talk to a healthcare provider and may get additional doses of updated COVID-19 vaccines. Children aged 6 months- 4 years should receive at least 1 dose of updated COVID-19 vaccine, depending on which vaccine and the number of doses they’ve previously received. Vaccine recommendations will be updated as needed.

Will a COVID-19 vaccination prevent me from getting sick with COVID-19?

People who are fully vaccinated and boosted are much less likely to be infected with COVID-19 and much less likely to spread the virus to others. Some evidence suggests that vaccination may make illness less severe for those who experience a breakthrough infection and get sick.

Can I get vaccinated for COVID-19 while I am sick with COVID-19?

No. People with COVID-19 who have symptoms should wait to be vaccinated until they have recovered from their illness and have met the criteria for ending isolation.  Those without symptoms should also wait until they meet the criteria before getting vaccinated.

Is the COVID-19 vaccine available to children?

Yes. The COVID-19 vaccine is recommended for everyone 6 months and older. Pasadena residents should first contact their healthcare provider or local pharmacy for vaccine availability. Learn more here: 6 Things to Know about COVID-19 Vaccination for Children.

What are COVID-19 vaccine side effects and adverse reactions?

You may have some possible side effects, which are normal signs that your body is building protection. Side effects may feel like the flu and even affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days. Side effects and adverse reactions such as an allergic reaction can be reported to VAERS.
