Key Things to Know About COVID-19 Vaccines
COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. Vaccines are now available to all adults, age 12+, and Coryell Health is a designated COVID-19 Vaccine Hub Provider.
You may have side effects after vaccination, but these are normal.
It typically takes two weeks after you are fully vaccinated for the body to build protection (immunity) against the virus that causes COVID-19.
People who have been fully vaccinated can start to do some things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic.

It takes time for your body to build protection after any vaccination. You are considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after your second dose of the Pfizer-BioNtech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines, or 2 weeks after the single-dose J&J/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine. You should keep using all the tools available to protect yourself and others until you are fully vaccinated.
After you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, you may be able to start doing some things that you had stopped doing because of the pandemic. Learn more about what you can do when you have been fully vaccinated.
