COVID Vaccine Information
The Prince William Health District What You Should Know:
Can A COVID-19 Vaccine Make Me Sick With COVID-19.
Because none of the authorized COVID-19 vaccines in the United States contain the live virus that causes COVID-19,the vaccine cannot make you sick with COVID-19, or make you Test positive.
The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines do not contain any live virus. Instead, they work by teaching our cells to make a harmless piece of a “spike protein,” which is found on the surface of the virus that causes COVID-19. After making the protein piece, cells display it on their Our immune system then recognizes that it does not belong there and responds to get rid of it. When an immune response begins, antibodies are produced, creating the same response that happens in a natural infection.
You should get a COVID-19 vaccine even if you already had COVID-19. Getting sick with COVID-19 offers some protection from future illness with COVID-19, sometimes called “natural” The level of protection people get from having COVID-19 may vary depending on how mild or severe their illness was, the time since their infection, and their age; and no currently available test can reliably determine if you are protected after a COVID-19 infection.
CDC is shortening the recommended time for isolation from 10 days for people with COVID-19 to 5 days
If asymptomatic, followed by 5 days of wearing a mask when around
The change is motivated by science showing that the majority of SARS- CoV-2 spread occurs early in the course of illness, generally in the 1-2 days before symptoms begin and the 2-3 days
CDC is also updating the recommended quarantine period for those exposed to COVID-19. The updated recommendations are as follows:
If You Test Positive for COVID-19 (Isolate) Everyone, regardless of vaccination status. Stay home for 5 If you have no symptoms or your symptoms are resolving after 5 days, you can leave your house.
If you have a fever, continue to stay home until your fever resolves for 24 hours without fever reducing Continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days.
If You Were Exposed to Someone with COVID-19
If you: Have been boosted OR Completed the primary series of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine within the last 6 months OR Completed the primary series of J&J vaccine within the last 2 You do not need to quarantine. Wear a mask around others for 10 days after exposure. Test on day 5, if possible.
If you develop symptoms, get a test and stay home
If you: Completed the primary series of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine over 6 months ago and are not boosted OR Completed the primary series of J&J over 2 months ago and are not boosted OR are unvaccinated at Stay home for 5 days. Continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days.
If you can’t quarantine, you must wear a well-fitting mask at all times when around others for 10 days after Test on day 5 if possible. If you develop symptoms, get a test and stay home and isolate yourself from others.
