COVID-19: WHO CAN GET VACCINATED
Everyone in Wisconsin age 16 and older is eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine at no cost. Click here for more information.
WHY DO WE NEED A VACCINE?
Getting vaccinated will be one of the best ways to protect yourself and your community. Scientific evidence currently tells us that the vaccine is very effective at preventing serious illness caused by COVID-19. However, researchers continue to investigate whether vaccinated individuals are still able to spread the virus to others who have not been vaccinated. A vaccine does not replace the need to continue other actions to stop the spread and keep ourselves healthy. These actions include masking, social distancing, and avoiding large gatherings. It will take time for everyone in Wisconsin to get vaccinated.
WHICH VACCINES HAVE BEEN APPROVED?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is a single dose vaccine. Click here to learn more about available vaccines.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER GETTING THE VACCINE?
You may have some side effects, which are normal signs that your body is building protection. These side effects may affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days. Some people have no side effects. Click here for more information.
People who have been fully vaccinated can start to do some things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic, including gathering indoors with other fully vaccinated people without wearing a mask. Click here for more information.
