Coronavirus Vaccine  Frequently Asked Questions 

You can find these FAQ and more resources by visiting the AdventHealth coronavirus vaccine resource hub

Is the vaccine safe? What if I’m immunocompromised, have a chronic condition, am pregnant or breastfeeding:

The vaccine has been determined to be safe according to federal guidelines and review by our internal Scientific Committee. Vaccine safety is determined based on when a patient experiences a negative effect after receiving the dose. If there are too many or severe effects during the trial, the vaccine is terminated. By the time a vaccine reaches consumers, the risk of a negative outcome is very low.

There's only a small amount of experience in the clinical trials of the vaccines regarding its use in pregnant or nursing mothers. However, the American Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology has endorsed use of the vaccine in these situations. If you have questions, we recommend contacting your provider directly so he/she can better answer this question based on your medical history.

 

Is the vaccine 100% effective? Am I guaranteed I won’t get COVID-19 if I have the vaccine?

While the approved COVID-19 vaccines have been determined to be effective by federal guidelines, there's no way to guarantee someone will not contract the virus. Just like it's not guaranteed you won't get the flu after receiving the flu shot, the same is true for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Those who have already had COVID-19 may not have long lasting immunity from the virus and therefore should receive the vaccine. However, we encourage speaking with your physician, as he or she can provide you with a personalized recommendation.

How quickly does the vaccine immunity take effect?

Vaccine immunity will take effect two weeks after you receive your second dose.

I already had COVID-19. Do I still need to get the vaccine?

Yes, you'll want to get the vaccine since re-infection is possible over time. At this time, experts don’t know how long you could be protected after recovering from COVID-19, and getting the vaccine will help prevent re-infection.
