The COVID-19 vaccines stimulate a strong immune response that may cause mild and temporary symptoms in many individuals for 1-3 days. These are normal signs that your body is building protection:
pain and swelling at the injection site
Once you are up-to-date:
You are not required to quarantine or get tested following a known exposure, as long as you don't have symptoms of COVID-19.
You can travel domestically without pre- or post-travel testing or self-quarantine.
You should still get tested if you experience COVID-19 symptoms.
Individuals are considered up to date with COVID-19 vaccination when they receive all doses in the primary series and a booster dose when eligible. At this time, a second booster dose is not required to be considered up-to-date.
