According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, studies show that COVID-19 vaccines are effective at helping protect against severe disease and death from the virus that causes COVID-19, including the Delta variant.
COVID-19 vaccines teach the body’s immune systems how to recognize and fight the virus that causes COVID-19. It typically takes 2 weeks after vaccination for the body to build protection (immunity) against the virus that causes COVID-19. It is possible a person could still get COVID-19 before or just after vaccination and then get sick because the vaccine did not have enough time to build protection.
Receiving the vaccine may have cause side effects, which are normal signs that your body is building protection. These side effects may affect your ability to do complete daily activities, but most often recede in a few days. Serious side effects that could cause any long-term health problems are extremely unlikely following any vaccination, including COVID-19 vaccination. Vaccine monitoring has historically shown that side effects happen within six weeks of receiving a vaccine dose. For this reason, the FDA required each of the authorized COVID-19 vaccines to be studied for at least two months (eight weeks) after the final dose.
