Why get vaccinated?

Getting vaccinated is one of the best protections for you and your family against the COVID-19 virus. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine will help protect you without having to be sick.  However, even after you or your loved ones are vaccinated, you may still spread the virus to others. 

Support and practice all the ways to protect yourself and your family from COVID-19:

  • Get vaccinated.

  • Mask Up! (even after you are vaccinated).

  • Stay 6 feet from others. Avoid gathering.

  • Wash hands often.

No one tool alone is going to stop the pandemic and vaccinating our communities will take time. We have to stay vigilant and continue to protect our families by social distancing and wearing a mask. Wearing a mask protects you and everyone around you from COVID-19. And if you do come in contact with the virus, a mask greatly lessens the spread of the virus. 

Remember, even if you aren’t feeling sick, you could still spread COVID-19 to others. A proper mask covers the mouth and nose and is worn anytime you are in public or around people who don’t live with you. Masks should not be worn by children under the age of two or anyone who has trouble breathing.

Use Your Voice to Show Support

A recent Census survey reported that 49% of unvaccinated adults are uncertain about getting the COVID-19 vaccine. The hesitancy among at-risk populations is of particular concern because those groups have been among the hardest-hit populations in the pandemic. Research has also shown that people become less hesitant as they see others vaccinated and when they are informed about the vaccine from voices they know and trust.

You can make a difference by encouraging others to vaccinate! Use the toolkit to share messages on social media, send emails, or distribute materials.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can a COVID-19 vaccine make me sick with COVID-19? Are the side effects going to make me sick?  
A: No. None of the COVID-19 vaccines contain the live virus that causes COVID-19 so a COVID-19 vaccine cannot make you sick with COVID-19.

Q: If I have already had COVID-19 and recovered, do I still need to get vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine?
A: Yes. Due to the severe health risks associated with COVID-19 and the fact that re-infection with COVID-19 is possible, vaccine should be offered to you regardless of whether you already had COVID-19 infection.

Q: How much will the COVID-19 vaccine cost?
A: Nothing. COVID-19 vaccines, including their administration, are free.

Q: Do I need to be a legal resident to get COVID-19 vaccine?
A: No. Vaccine distribution is based on eligibility irrespective of residency or immigration status. Registering for a vaccination appointment does not require a Social Security number or similarly sensitive information.

Q: How effective are the COVID-19 vaccines?
A: The first two vaccines available have shown 94-95% efficacy against a person becoming ill with COVID-19.

Q: Is the COVID-19 vaccine safe?
A: All the COVID-19 vaccines being used have gone through rigorous studies to ensure they are as safe as possible. Systems to watch for safety issues are in place across the entire country.

Q: What kind of side effects should I expect?
A: COVID-19 vaccines can cause side effects for a few days that include fever, chills, headache, swelling or tiredness, which are normal signs that your body is building protection. However, severe reactions are extremely rare. The side effects from COVID-19 vaccination may feel like flu and might even affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days. Side effects are more common following the second dose.

Q: Will a COVID-19 vaccine alter my DNA?
A: No. COVID-19 mRNA vaccines do not change or interact with your DNA in any way. Messenger RNA vaccines—also called mRNA vaccines—are the first COVID-19 vaccines authorized for use in the United States. mRNA vaccines teach our cells how to make a protein that triggers an immune response. The mRNA from a COVID-19 vaccine never enters the nucleus of the cell, which is where our DNA is kept. This means the mRNA cannot affect or interact with our DNA in any way.

Q: Can pregnant or breastfeeding women be vaccinated against COVID-19?
A: Yes. Pregnant women have a higher risk for complications from COVID-19 disease. There are no study results available yet on the safety of COVID-19 vaccines in pregnant women. However, experts believe that the vaccines are unlikely to pose a risk to the woman or the fetus. Pregnant women can talk with a doctor about their risk of COVID-19 disease and how they might benefit from vaccination.

Q: Will the COVID-19 vaccine be mandatory?
A: No, there is no mandatory vaccination requirement from either the state or federal government. We hope that once Californians find out how safe and effective the COVID-19 vaccines are, they will voluntarily opt to receive them.

Q: How is my privacy protected if I take the COVID-19 vaccine?
A: California law strictly limits how personal information about those who are vaccinated can be shared. California negotiated with the federal government to limit the required data sharing to only information that will not allow an individual to be identified.

Q: Do I really need two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine? Why are there two doses?
A: With most COVID-19 vaccines, you will need 2 shots in order for them to work. Get the second shot even if you have side effects after the first shot, unless a vaccination provider or your doctor tells you not to get a second shot.

Q: Can pregnant or breastfeeding women be vaccinated against COVID-19?
A: Yes. Pregnant women have a higher risk for complications from COVID-19 disease. There are no study results available yet on the safety of COVID-19 vaccines in pregnant women. However, experts believe that the vaccines are unlikely to pose a risk to the woman or the fetus. Pregnant women can talk with a doctor about their risk of COVID-19 disease and how they might benefit from vaccination.

Q: When will the vaccine be available to me?
A: Vaccine production is slowly increasing in the United States. There may be vaccine shortages for several months before everyone who wants a vaccine can get one. In the interim, here are three steps you can take to learn when it will be your turn to be vaccinated:

Know your Phase/Tier: Occupation, age, medical history and home environment are factors that the California Department of Public Health considers when prioritizing groups for vaccination. If your occupation is not defined as an essential worker role, then your age and medical history will help you define when a vaccine will be available to you.

Talk with your employer and/or primary care provider: As vaccines become more readily available and vaccinations expand for Phases 1B and higher, you may be able to get a vaccine via your primary care provider or employer, who may refer you to a vaccine location (e.g., Safeway, public health clinic, or other point of dispensing location).

Stay informed: To stay informed about vaccine availability and progression through the vaccination phases, residents can visit the Placer County website at www.placer.ca.gov/vaccine; text PLACERVACCINE to the number 898211 to receive text alerts from 211; and subscribe to Placer County’s newsletter. The state has also piloted a tool called MyTurn to help notify residents when they are eligible.

Placer County is also working with our libraries and key community partners to ensure senior and rural populations will have support in accessing and making appointments.

Q: Do I need to wear a mask and avoid close contact with others if I have gotten 2 doses of the vaccine?
A: Yes. To protect yourself and others, follow these recommendations:

  • Wear a mask over your nose and mouth
  • Stay at least 6 feet away from others
  • Avoid crowds
  • Avoid poorly ventilated spaces
  • Wash your hand soften

It’s important for everyone to continue using all the tools available to help stop this pandemic as we learn more about how COVID-19 vaccines work in real-world conditions. Experts are also looking at how many people get vaccinated and how the virus is spreading in communities. We also don’t yet know whether getting a COVID-19 vaccine will prevent you from spreading the virus that causes COVID-19 to other people, even if you don’t get sick yourself.

Q: Can I get vaccinated against COVID-19 while I am currently sick with COVID-19?
A: No. People with COVID-19 who have symptoms should wait to be vaccinated until they have recovered from their illness and have met the criteria for discontinuing isolation; those without symptoms should also wait until they meet the criteria before getting vaccinated. This guidance also applies to people who get COVID-19 before getting their second dose of vaccine.
