- How long will each COVID-19 vaccine be effective?

It's not yet know how long any of the COVID-19 vaccines will last in terms of protecting people from COVID-19. It's for at least three months. The studies are ongoing, and we will get the answer to the question of how long each COVID-19 vaccine works.

- How long does it take to build up immunity to COVID-19 after being vaccinated for COVID-19?

After you finish your COVID-19 vaccination series, whether it's the two-dose series or the single-dose, you need to wait two weeks to get the full benefit of the COVID-19 vaccine. Even then, when you have the full benefit of your COVID-19 vaccine, COVID-19 is still circulating in the community.

- Why do people who have been vaccinated for COVID-19 still have to wear a mask and practice social distancing while in public?

It's frustrating that we're not quite there yet, but taking off your mask and letting down your social distancing while in public right now is a little bit like deciding that you don't need to wear your seat belt because you're a good driver. You can't control all of the risks out there, and no COVID-19 vaccine is 100% effective. So right now until more of the population is protected, you should not relax those precautions.

- What are the potential side effects of a COVID-19 vaccine?

A COVID-19 vaccine can cause mild side effects after the first or second dose, including:

Pain, redness, or swelling where the shot was given.
- Fever
- Fatigue
- Headache
- Muscle pain
- Chills
- Joint pain
- Nausea and vomiting
- Feeling unwell
- Swollen lymph nodes
