Frequently Asked Questions

Is there anyone who shouldn't get the vaccine?

You should not get either of the currently available mRNA COVID-19 vaccines if you have a history of allergic reaction to polyethylene glycol or polysorbate, or to any ingredient in an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine. If you had an allergic reaction after receiving your first dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine, you should not receive the second shot.
