You must continue to wear a mask after you have been vaccinated, as you can still spread the virus that causes COVID-19 to other people.
Be alert to potential vaccine scams. The important thing to remember is that you will likely receive vaccine information from your primary doctor or your local Public Health Department.

Register for v-safe. This smartphone-based tool from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) uses text messaging check-ins to learn about any side effects you may experience after being vaccinated. Depending on your response, you may get a phone call from the CDC. Check-ins are daily the first week after your first vaccine, weekly for the next 5 weeks, and then 3, 6 and 12 months after your final dose. Register at vsafe.cdc.gov.
