COVID 19 Vaccine

COVID-19 Vaccine:

Is it safe? Should I take it?

The answers are Yes and Yes!

Dr. Wagshul is recommending that EVERYONE get the Covid-19 vaccine.


Common questions regarding the COVID-19 vaccine.


Can it make me sick with COVID-19?

No. None of the authorized vaccines currently in development in the United States contain the live virus.


Will a COVID-19 vaccination protect me from getting sick with COVID-19?

Yes. The vaccination works by teaching your immune system how to recognize and fight the virus.


If I already had COVID-19 and recovered, do I still need a vaccine?

Yes. Due to the severe health risks associated with COVID-19 and the fact that reinfection with COVID-19 is possible, you should be vaccinated regardless of whether you already had COVID-19 infection. If you were treated for COVID-19 symptoms with monoclonal antibodies or convalescent plasma, you should wait 90 days before getting a COVID-19 vaccine. Talk to your doctor if you are unsure what treatments you received or if you have more questions about getting a COVID-19 vaccine.


Where and when can I get my COVID-19 vaccine?

A great resource to track vaccine distribution is by visiting the CDC website at

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/index.html

You can search by region and find the closest distribution facility to your home.
