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

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON THE JOHNSON & JOHNSON (JANSSEN) VACCINE:

As of April 23, 2021, the pause on the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine has been lifted. The FDA and CDC have confidence that this vaccine is safe and effective in preventing COVID-19. The vaccine fact sheet fo
providers and for recipients and caregivers has been updated to include information about the risk of a very rare and severe type of blood clot.

I am looking at taking the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, what should I do?

  • Know that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is safe and effective, and that the pause on administering the vaccine was lifted after an extensive safety review by independent experts, the CDC and the FDA.
  • There is a risk, primarily for women ages 18-49, of a very rare but severe type of blood clotting.
  • Getting vaccinated is the most effective way to protect yourself and your family from the risks of COVID-19.
  • The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is a one dose shot, meaning, you have full immunity 14 days after you receive it.
  • You can look for vaccine by brand at VaccineFinder.

If you do receive the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, contact your health care provider immediately if you experience any of the following symptoms within three weeks of receiving your vaccine:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Leg swelling
  • Persistent abdominal pain
  • Severe or persistent headaches
  • Blurred vision

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.

Common vaccine side effects

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.
