How 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. Different types of vaccines work in different types of ways to offer protection. It typically takes a few weeks for your body to build immunity to protect you from the virus 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 gets sick because the vaccine did not have enough time to provide protection. Sometimes after vaccination, the process of building immunity can cause symptoms, such as fever. These symptoms are normal signs the body is building immunity.
When Are You Considered Up to Date with Vaccines?
You are up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines when you have received all doses in the primary series and all boosters recommended for you, when eligible.
- Vaccine recommendations are different depending on your age, your health status, what vaccine you first received, and when you first got vaccinated.
