Important Reminder: Stay safe until your vaccine reaches full effectiveness:
- Pfizer and Moderna vaccines take up to 2 weeks after the 2nd dose for full effectiveness; 1-dose Johnson & Johnson can take up to 28 days.
- All three vaccines are highly effective at preventing life-threatening illness, but they do not offer 100% protection from catching or spreading COVID-19; no vaccine gives 100% protection.
- While the virus continues to spread, mask-wearing and social distancing remain critically important.
