Hospital Outreach



Vaccines often cause our immune systems to respond, and that shows us the vaccine is working. This is healthy, normal, and expected. You may experience a sore arm, headache, fever, or body aches, but they should go away within a few days. If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 following vaccination, stay home, call your or healthcare provider, and get tested.
