None of the COVID-19 vaccines currently in development in the United States use the live virus that causes
COVID-19 vaccines will not cause you to test positive on COVID-19 viral tests.
Vaccines won’t cause you to test positive on viral tests, which are used to see if you have a current infection.
People who have gotten sick with COVID-19 may still benefit from getting vaccinated.
At this time, experts do not know how long someone is protected from getting sick again after recovering
from COVID-19. The immunity someone gains from having an infection (natural immunity) varies from
person to person. Some early evidence suggests natural immunity may not last very long.
Getting vaccinated can help prevent getting sick with COVID-19.
There is no way to know how COVID-19 will affect you. If you get sick, you also may spread the disease to
friends, family, and others around you while you are sick. COVID-19 vaccination helps protect you by creating
an antibody response without having to experience sickness.
Receiving an mRNA vaccine will not alter your DNA.
mRNA (messenger ribonucleic acid) can most easily be described as instructions for how to make a protein or
even just a piece of a protein. mRNA is not able to alter or modify a person’s genetic makeup (DNA).
