The COVID-19 vaccine teaches our immune system how to recognize and fight the virus that causes COVID-19. It typically takes two weeks after vaccination for the body to build protection (immunity) against the virus that causes COVID-19.

After you have been fully vaccinated, you may be able to start doing some things you had stopped doing because of the pandemic.

Many doctors’ offices, retail pharmacies, hospitals, and clinics offer COVID-19 vaccinations. The federal government is providing the vaccine free of charge to all people living in the United States, regardless of their immigration or health insurance status.
