What to expect after your COVID-19 Vaccines
Sabrina Leach MD, Glendale Medical Director

Scheduling your COVID-19 vaccine?
Find a location to set up your appointment. You need to receive the same brand of vaccine for both shots (both Pfizer OR both Moderna).

About your shots
Both COVID-19 mRNA vaccines will need 2 shots to get the most protection. You should get your second shot:
• Pfizer-BioNTech 3 weeks (or 21 days) after your first shot
• Moderna 1 month (or 28 days) after your first shot

Common side effects
On the arm where you got the shot:
- Pain
- Swelling
Throughout the rest of your body:
- Fever, Chills
- Tiredness
- Headache

• Side effects may feel like flu and even affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days.
• Get the second shot even if you have side effects after the first shot, unless a vaccination provider or your doctor tells you not to get a second shot.
• It takes time for your body to build protection after any vaccination. COVID-19 vaccines that require 2 shots may not protect you until a week or two after your second shot.

What to do AFTER your 1st AND 2nd Vaccines
• Continue to use face coverings (masks/face shields) when you are around others.
• Stay at least 6 feet away from others, avoid crowds.
• Wash hands frequently.

Reasons to continue with safe practices, even after 2nd vaccine
It’s important for everyone to continue using all the tools available to help stop this pandemic as we learn more about how COVID-19 vaccines work in real-world conditions.

1. It takes 1-2 weeks for you to be fully immunized after your second shot. The hope is that the vaccinations will help prevent you from getting COVID-19, but the vaccines are not 100% effective. You can still get Covid-19 after getting the shots, but the vaccines should help with your body's response to the virus, and hopefully you will only have a mild case.

2. There are still a lot of unknowns about how effective the vaccines are against the new variants that we are discovering.

3. It is unknown if you can still be an asymptomatic carrier of Covid-19 after you get vaccinated, and whether or not you could still transmit the virus to others.
