Q. Why should I get the COVID-19 vaccine?
According to the CDC, all COVID-19 vaccines currently available in the U.S. have been shown to be safe and effective in preventing the disease. Based on what is known about vaccines for other diseases and early data from clinical trials, experts believe that getting a COVID-19 vaccine also helps keep you from getting seriously ill, even if you do get COVID-19. The vaccination is an important tool to help stop the pandemic.
Q. What are the risks associated with the COVID-19 vaccine?
None of the COVID-19 vaccines contain the live virus so you cannot become sick with COVID. After getting vaccinated, however, you may have some side effects, which are normal signs that your body is building protection. Common side effects are pain, redness, and swelling in the arm where you received the shot, as well as tiredness, headache, muscle pain, chills, fever, and nausea throughout the rest of the body. These symptoms should go away in a few days.
Q. What can I do if I lost my COVID-19 Vaccination Record card?
The Public Health Department and other vaccination sites cannot replace a lost Vaccination Record Card. To obtain a copy of your record, visit the Wisconsin Immunization Registry Public Access Site and provide the requested information (name, date of birth, and social security number). If your record cannot be located through the Public Access Site, contact the location where you were vaccinated for further assistance or fill out DHS form F-02487, Wisconsin Immunization Registry Record Release Authorization.
