COVID-19 Vaccine FAQs

Before receiving FDA emergency use authorization approval, the COVID-19 vaccines went through rigorous testing and trials to prove they are safe and effective prior to distribution. Vidant is confident in the safety and efficacy of the vaccine.
There is a potential for injection site reactions (redness, swelling, and pain) as well as fever, fatigue, headache, chills, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, muscle pain, and/or joint pain. These are signs that your immune system is building protection against the virus. These side effects may affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days.
Until findings are available from clinical trials and additional studies, only limited data are available on the safety of COVID-19 vaccines, including mRNA vaccines, administered during pregnancy. CDC and the FDA have safety monitoring systems in place to capture information about vaccination during pregnancy and will closely monitor reports.
If you are pregnant, breastfeeding or plan to be pregnant and have questions or concerns, it is recommended for you to discuss with your primary care provider before getting vaccinated.
The research has not shown a link between the COVID-19 vaccine and infertility or miscarriage. The CDC provides additional information for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
