"It [the COVID-19 vaccine] is very safe. It is actually even considered somewhat safer than a large number of other vaccines we have on the market because there is no, absolutely no, live virus used in the making of the vaccine at all." -Cory Offutt, MD, family medicine physician at Phelps Health


    Vaccination Process

    what to expect with COVID-19 vaccine

    After my first dose

    After getting the vaccine, be mindful of any side effects. Most side effects will be mild and go away in one or two days. If side effects worsen or persist, contact your provider.

    The CDC recommends that you sign up for v-safe, a free, smartphone-based tool that uses text messaging and web surveys to provide personalized health check-ins after you receive the vaccine. V-safe also reminds you if you need additional doses.
