COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Hear from our President, Dr. Carlos Campo and Dr. Joe Castaldo, Ohio Health infectious disease doctor, on the impact of vaccinations to prevent the spread of the virus.

There is a lot of information circulating about the COVID-19 vaccine, and not all of it is true. Make sure you are providing accurate and trustworthy information to your employees.

Does the vaccine provide full immunity?

The vaccines authorized for emergency use by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) are highly effective at preventing COVID-19. They do not provide 100% immunity, but they will prevent you from becoming seriously ill if you do get COVID-19.

Do I need to wear a mask if I get the vaccine?

After you’ve been vaccinated, there’s still a small chance you could get infected, and it’s unknown whether you may be able to spread the virus to others Until most people can be vaccinated, continue to protect others by covering your mouth and nose with a mask, washing your hands often, and staying at least 6 feet away from others.

Can I get COVID-19 from the vaccine?

No. The vaccine does not contain a live virus strain.

Is the vaccine safe?

We know it feels like the vaccine was rushed, but FDA approval or authorization of a vaccine means that the agency has determined - based on substantial evidence and a stringent review process - that the vaccine is safe and effective for its intended use.

Does the vaccine cause side effects?

Mild to moderate side effects are a sign that your body is responding to the vaccine and building immunity against COVID-19. Side effects may resemble cold or flu symptoms that affect your ability to complete daily activities. They should subside in a few days.

Is the vaccine safe for pregnant women?

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine have recommended that the vaccine should not be withheld from women who are pregnant or breastfeeding as long as they meet other criteria necessary to receive the vaccine. If you have concerns about receiving the vaccine, please discuss these concerns with your physician.

How does the vaccine affect tuberculosis (TB) testing?

There is no risk associated with being tested for TB before you are vaccinated for COVID-19 If you need to be tested after being vaccinated, adhere to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines. Experts recommend waiting two weeks after vaccination for tuberculin skin tests.
