Frequently asked questions about the COVID-19 vaccine

Do you need the vaccine if you’ve already had COVID-19?

  • It’s still recommended that you get a COVID-19 vaccine even if you’ve previously been infected with COVID-19.

Is the COVID-19 vaccine safe?

  • Yes. The vaccine is deemed to be safe based upon a rigorous evaluation of currently available scientific evidence. Vaccination is the best way to protect yourself, your family and other loved ones from COVID-19.

Who needs a COVID-19 booster?

  • Studies show that COVID-19 vaccine protection decreases over time. A booster vaccine gives you more protection, especially against severe illness or death. To learn if you’re eligible for a booster vaccine, contact your primary care provider.

Can you get sick with COVID-19 from the vaccine?

  • No, it’s not possible to get COVID-19 from any of its vaccines. The vaccines use only a part of the virus — the spike protein — which can’t cause COVID-19. Learn more from our experts.
