Remember, it takes approximately two weeks after the final vaccination to develop immunity against COVID-19.
Vaccines do not cause disease. However, vaccines can cause your immune system to respond. This is a sign that the vaccine, and your body’s immune system, are working. People may feel some soreness in their upper arms, some aches, and fatigue, and other mild symptoms that can vary. This is entirely normal, and they will clear up in a few days. Some people may experience no symptoms. Here is a link for COVID-19 Vaccine FAQs from RIDOH to help answer most questions regarding the vaccines you may have. It is highly recommended that you remain hydrated on both vaccination days.
