The BEST reasons to get vaccinated:
Once you are fully vaccinated (two weeks after the last dose), you can start
to do many activities that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic:
• Gather in closed spaces with fully vaccinated people without wearing masks or without being
at a distance of 6 feet
• You will not have to wear a mask when visiting friends and family who are in your room in a
long-term care facility. Physical contact is possible again.
• Students can remain in school as they do not have to quarantine even if they are in school.
close contact with someone with COVID-19 or if they were exposed while participating in sports.
You do not have to quarantine if you were exposed to COVID-19 (except in rare cases involving housing shared), unless you have symptoms of COVID-19.
• You are protected and have little chance of becoming infected, so you are less likely to transmit the viruses to other people.
The vaccine in numbers
All three vaccines available in California have been studied by experts and are safe and
effective. Vaccines against COVID-19 are highly successful in preventing the disease
serious or death.
• Each of the three vaccines is 99 percent effective in preventing severe disease and death.
• Unvaccinated people make up the 99.3% percent of cases of COVID-19 in the state.
Know the risks of hospitalization if you become infected with COVID-19:
Experts continue to study vaccines It is rare for you to have a serious reaction to any of the three vaccines. If this happens, it is report it to your Doctor. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) and studied by medical experts. This is how the rare but serious risk of blood clots with low platelets of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine was discovered. It is important to consider the low risk of this rare event compared to increased risk of contracting COVID-19. Know the risk: Risk of developing blood clots with low platelets from the Johnson & Johnson vaccine:
• 1 in every 1 million men of all ages and women 50 and older are at risk.
• 7 in every million women ages 18 to 49 are at risk. Risk of developing blood clots from COVID-19:
• 165,000 in every million MRNA vaccines such as Pfizer and Moderna have not shown any increased risk of clotting.
What the vaccine does not do:
• The vaccine will not change your DNA. The vaccine simply teaches our immune system how to create a protein that it will cause an immune response if infected. It does not change the composition of the DNA in your cells.
• There is no evidence that COVID-19 vaccines cause fertility problems or problems trying to get
pregnant. Although the overall risk of serious disease is low, pregnant people are at higher risk
of contracting a serious illness from COVID-19 compared to non-pregnant people. Also, people
pregnant women with COVID-19 may be at increased risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes, such as preterm delivery, in compared to pregnant women without COVID-19.
• Vaccines do not contain a microchip or any other type of device. It is not a follow-up mechanism.
• A COVID-19 vaccine cannot make you sick with COVID-19. None of the licensed and recommended vaccines against COVID-19 contains the live virus that causes COVID-19.
• After receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, you will not get a positive COVID-19 viral test. None of the licensed and recommended COVID-19 vaccines cause you to test positive for viral tests, which are used to see if you have a current infection. If your body develops an immune response to vaccination, it is possible that of a positive result in some antibody tests. Antibody tests indicate you had an infection prior or immunized.
• The vaccine provides protection even if you had COVID-19. Chances of contracting COVID-19 again increase with time as natural immunity wanes. Variant viruses (such as variant B.1.1.7, Delta) have been reported in California. Vaccination can help reduce the chances of reinfection and infection with a variant strain of COVID-19.
• An allergic reaction to the vaccine is rare. The CDC recommends that people get vaccinated even if they have history of severe allergic reactions that are not related to vaccines or injectable medications, such as allergies to food, pets, poisons, environmental or latex allergies. People with a history of allergies to oral medications or with a family history of severe allergic reactions can also be vaccinated. The risk of a Anaphylactic reaction is 2.5 to 5 per million. Talk to your healthcare provider.
