Yes, the COVID-19 vaccines being given to people are safe and effective. Like other vaccines, they were developed using the same rigorous clinical trials and safety protocols. Vaccine use also continues to be closely monitored. See more about vaccine safety.

Please contact your medical carrier for more information.

More than 200 million doses have been given in the U.S. alone. This includes thousands of caregivers. You can look at the Johns Hopkins University Vaccine Tracker to see current data for all people in United States, and in the world.

Some people who get the vaccine experience side effects like fatigue or a fever. The side effects of the vaccine are usually minor, temporary and fade within 1-2 days. They are a sign that the vaccine is working.

Your visit could be very similar to a normal doctor’s visit, it could be at a mass vaccination clinic in a large public space, or it could even be a drive-up clinic where you stay in your car, depending on where your appointment is. You may be asked for a form of identification. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine is similar to other vaccines or shots, with an injection on your upper arm. You will be asked to wait at least 15 minutes after your injection to ensure you do not have an allergic reaction.

Yes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends getting vaccinated even if you previously had COVID-19 because experts do not yet know how long you are protected from getting sick again after recovering.

See the CDC Guidelines on this topic. In many circumstances, depending on the number of people and whether or not those you are around have also been fully vaccinated, you will still need to wear PPE and be socially distant.

There are many places to get a vaccine. See vaccine location information.

Your client can get the vaccine now. Most clients are eligible for the vaccine as of March 17 and on April 15 all people over the age of 16 are eligible.

See the Washington State Department of Health’s (DOH) comprehensive webpage for frequently-asked questions, including how both types of vaccines work, eligibility for different people during different phases and much more.
