Things to Know about the COVID-19 Vaccine

  1. Vaccine appointments are open to the general public ages 6 months and older.
  2. COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective.
    • Vaccines are rigorously studied to ensure that all vaccines are as safe as possible before being approved and are continuously studied afterward.
    • Once someone is fully vaccinated, COVID-19 vaccines are 95% effective in preventing infection with the virus.
  3. You won't be protected right away.
    • The Moderna and Pfizer vaccines require 2 doses spaced about a month apart to get full protection.
      • It takes about 1-2 weeks for the vaccine to create immunity in the body once someone gets the last dose of the vaccine.
    • The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is a one-dose vaccine and it takes 1-2 weeks for the vaccine to create immunity after getting the shot.
    • Booster doses are recommended for everyone age 16 and older. The protection provided by the vaccine can decline over time and booster doses help increase that immune protection after the initial series.
  4. COVID vaccines are free.
    • The cost to you for the vaccine is free.

FAQs

  1. Employers may be able to require COVID-19 vaccination for in-person work for their employees, but an employee may be entitled to an exemption through the ADA and Civil Rights Act of 1964.  The U.S. Equal Opportunity Commission has more information on this on their website

  2. Feeling a little under the weather in the day or two after getting a vaccine is quite normal. Pain at the site the shot was given is common. 
    It's common to have flu-like symptoms like muscle aches, fatigue, chills, and fever after the injection. It's more common to have these symptoms after the second shot, but they can still happen after the first. These symptoms can be managed by resting, drinking lots of fluids, and taking over-the-counter medications like tylenol or ibuprofen unless your doctor has told you in the past not to take these types of medications. If the symptoms don't go away after 1-2 days, or if you have any concerns about their duration or severity, we recommend that you reach out to your physician for further guidance.

    Severe reactions are rare. If you believe you are having a serious reaction the a vaccine, please contact your healthcare provider for advice. If you would like to report an adverse (bad) reaction to a vaccine, you can do so through the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). VAERS is an early-warning system that collects and analyzes reports of any problems that happen after vaccination. Anyone can submit a report, including parents, patients, and health care professionals.

  3. Yes. For additional FAQs, please visit the Colorado Health Department website.

  4. People ages 12 and older who completed their initial 2-dose series of the Novavax vaccine are eligible to receive the updated omicron booster and those who are 18 and older are also eligible to receive a Novavax booster.

    The updated COVID-19 booster is approved for the following age groups no sooner than 2 months after the initial vaccine series: 

    • Ages 6+ Either the Pfizer or Moderna booster
    • Age 5: Pfizer booster only. 

    Novavax COVID-19 vaccine may be administered as a first booster dose to the following people at least 6 months after completion of primary vaccination with an authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine:

    • People aged 18 years and older for whom a omicron COVID-19 booster vaccine is not accessible or clinically appropriate.
    • People aged 18 years and older who choose to receive the Novavax COVID-19 vaccine because they would otherwise not get a booster dose of a COVID-19 vaccine
