What are the side effects of vaccination?
The vaccines may cause side effects in some people, like sore muscles, feeling tired, or mild fever. These reactions mean the vaccine is working to help teach your body how to fight COVID-19 if you are exposed. For most people, these side effects will last no longer than a day or two. Having these types of side effects does not mean that you have COVID-19.
Do I still need to wear a mask after my vaccine?
Yes, wearing a mask provides an additional layer of protection. The same way social distancing and hand washing provide layers. When you receive the vaccine you have an additional layer of protection.
