What to Expect after Getting a COVID-19 Vaccine

COVID-19 vaccination will help protect you from getting COVID-19.

Common side effects

You may have some side effects, especially after the second dose. The side effects are normal signs that your body is building protection. They typically go away on their own after a few days. Side effects include:

  • Pain and swelling on the arm where you got the shot
  • Fever, chills, tiredness, and/or headache throughout the rest of your body

Scheduling your second shot

If you need help scheduling your vaccine appointment for your second shot, contact the location that set up your appointment for assistance.

You should get your second shot as close to the recommended 3-week or 1-month interval as possible. However, there is no maximum interval between the first and second doses for either vaccine. You should not get the second dose earlier than the recommended interval.

Vaccine Data

The CDC vaccine data and Colorado vaccine data COVID-19 dashboards have the latest information on the phases, total vaccine providers, doses distributed, and people immunized.

Colorado's Vaccine Distribution Plan

While this news is very exciting, vaccinations are very dependent on vaccine availability. Some hospitals and other providers in the Tri-County Jurisdiction have begun phase 1B vaccinations, but not every provider has moved into phase 1B. Since limited amounts of the vaccine come in weekly, and even smaller amounts are distributed throughout the state, not every provider has all the vaccine needed to vaccinate everyone 70 and older. 

Getting vaccinated is one of many steps you can take to protect yourself and others from COVID-19. Protection from COVID-19 is critically important because for some people, the COVID-19 virus can cause severe illness or death.
