It’s normal to feel anxious or even a little scared about getting any vaccine, but it’s important to remember that the COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective. Here’s what you can expect during and after your free COVID vaccination in Bridgeport.
During the vaccine, you may feel a little sting when the needle goes in. Otherwise, the vaccine itself is painless. Once you have received the vaccine, you will be asked to stay on-site for around 15 minutes to monitor you for any adverse reactions. This waiting period may be longer if you have a history of allergic reactions.
You may have some mild side effects for a few days after getting the vaccine, including soreness at the injection site, fever, and fatigue. These side effects are normal and a sign that your body is building immunity to the virus. They should go away within a few days.
It’s important to remember that the COVID-19 vaccine is very effective at preventing you from getting sick with the virus. However, you may still be able to spread the virus to others for a short time after getting vaccinated. That’s why it’s important to continue wearing a mask and social distancing even after you’ve been vaccinated.
If you have any questions or concerns about getting the COVID-19 vaccine, please talk to your doctor or another healthcare professional. They can help put your mind at ease and answer any questions you may have.
