What are Vaccine Information Statements (VISs)?
Vaccine Information Statements (VISs) are information sheets produced by the CDC that explain both the benefits and risks of a vaccine to vaccine recipients.
What are the chances of getting Covid-19 after vaccine?
There is a small chance of getting COVID-19 after vaccination, but the shot does reduce a person’s chances of being hospitalized, which health experts say is the most important thing. “They should not assume that being vaccinated gives them 100% protection — it does not,” Weiss said. 5
Can you get sick with Covid if you are vaccinated?
So while the vaccines are very good at protecting us from the virus, it’s still possible to get infected with mild or no symptoms, or even to get very sick. If you do end up getting sick despite vaccination, experts say the shots help reduce the severity of the illness — the main reason to get vaccinated.
Can my employer require me to be vaccinated against COVID-19?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not mandate vaccination. However, whether a state, local government, or employer, for example, may require or mandate COVID-19 vaccination is a matter of state or other applicable law.
What happens if you get COVID-19 after being vaccinated?
Most epidemiologists agree that a breakthrough case occurs when a person who has been fully vaccinated becomes infected with the coronavirus. That infection could manifest as anything from asymptomatic, to mild symptoms, to severe symptoms that result in hospitalization or even death. 5
Do vaccinated people test positive for Covid?
Yes, if you’ve been around someone who has COVID-19. The latest guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says people who are fully vaccinated should get tested three to five days after a potential exposure, even if they don’t have symptoms.
Can breakthrough Covid cases infect others?
In yet another unexpected and unwelcome twist in the pandemic, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released on Friday a report strongly suggesting that fully immunized people with so-called breakthrough infections of the Delta variant can spread the virus to others just as readily as unvaccinated people.
Is it safe to vaccinate 12 year olds with Pfizer?
Most children aged 12 to 15 can safely get the vaccine. But a vaccine is not recommended if your child: has had a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) in the past, including to any other vaccine or medication.
Who shouldn’t get the Covid vaccine?
But who should not get a COVID-19 vaccine? “There’s really only category of patients, and those are those who have had severe reactions to previous vaccines or one of the other COVID vaccines,” said Scott Robertson, President of the Pacific Central Coast Health Centers for Dignity Health. 3
What does breakthrough Covid feel like?
Generally speaking, vaccinated people who contract COVID-19 and develop symptoms are prone to the same ones that an unvaccinated person might experience. These include fever, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, body aches, headache, sore throat, congestion, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
How effective is the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine?
• Based on evidence from clinical trials in people 16 years and older, the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine was 95% effective at preventing laboratory-confirmed infection with the virus that causes COVID-19 in people who received two doses and had no evidence of being previously infected.
