What does the COVID vaccine do?

The vaccine helps your body produce a protein that teaches your body how to fight the COVID-19 virus. When your body learns how to fight a virus, you build your immunity. That way, if you are exposed to the virus, your body will know how to fight it so you will not get sick.
No. The vaccine does not contain the live virus.
The vaccine has something called mRNA, which helps your body learn how to fight off the COVID-19 virus. mRNA is NOT the virus, and will not change your DNA. There is no chip or anything else in the vaccine that will track you.
Yes. Even if you have had COVID-19, there is a chance you can get it again. Scientists don’t know if you will be protected forever if you have already had COVID-19. Getting the vaccine lowers the chance you will get COVID-19 again.
No. The vaccines are effective, but there is a small chance you could get COVID-19 after you’ve been vaccinated. This is similar to other vaccines, like the flu vaccine. If you get the vaccine, it is still important to wear masks, maintain social distance and wash your hands.
