Collin Gabriel April 28, 2021

Does the vaccine give me coronavirus. Excellent question.

Lise Alexander, MD (00:17):


Claymore Kills First, PharmD, BCOP, BCPS (00:17):


Kimberly Kardonsky, MD (00:17):

You can not get COVID-19 from the vaccine.

Claymore Kills First, PharmD, BCOP, BCPS (00:21):

The vaccine works with your immune system so that your body is able to recognize the coronavirus. If you are exposed to it.

Gerald Hill, MD (00:31):

How is the vaccine given? The COVID vaccine is administered as an injection into your arm in two doses, either 21 or 28 days apart, depending on which vaccine you received.

Claymore Kills First, PharmD, BCOP, BCPS (00:42):

The first dose of the COVID vaccine helps your body recognize the Corona virus.

Rex Quaempts, MD (00:46):

The second dose optimizes your body’s ability to fight the coronavirus.

Kelsey Motanic, MD (00:53):

You need both doses of the vaccine to be most effective.

Rex Quaempts, MD (00:57):

Why does the COVID-19 vaccine make some people feel sick? Some people may feel sick after receiving the vaccine.

Kimberly Kardonsky, MD (01:04):

This is not COVID-19. It is your body’s immune system. Learning to prepare to respond to the virus.

Rex Quaempts, MD (01:11):

These symptoms are normal.

Gerald Hill, MD (01:12):

And are a sign that your body is building immunity.

Claymore Kills First, PharmD, BCOP, BCPS (01:17):

Do I still need to take precautions even after I’ve received both doses of the COVID vaccine? Yes. You do need to take precautions like wearing a mask, social distancing, washing your hands and keeping surfaces clean. Even after you’ve received both doses of your COVID vaccine.

Lise Alexander, MD (01:32):

While the vaccine protects you, the social distancing mask wearing, and hand-washing protects those in your community and family who have not been vaccinated yet.

Claymore Kills First, PharmD, BCOP, BCPS (01:41):

Together, following the CDC guidelines, we can help protect our whole community.

Rex Quaempts, MD (01:45):

Even if you have recovered from COVID-19, there is a benefit to being vaccinated

Kimberly Kardonsky, MD (01:49):

We do not know how long immunity lasts after recovering from COVID-19.

Gerald Hill, MD (01:54):

Getting the vaccine after you have recovered, cannot protect you from getting COVID-19 in the future.

Claymore Kills First, PharmD, BCOP, BCPS (01:59):

So even if you have been previously infected with COVID-19.

Kelsey Motanic, MD (02:04):

You should still get the vaccine.

Rex Quaempts, MD (02:05):

For your elders, for your community and for yourself, please get the vaccine. Sepk’ecc’a.
