No. None of the COVID-19 vaccines contain the live virus so a vaccine cannot make you sick with COVID-19. You may have some side effects however. This is a normal sign that your body is building protection. Side effects may feel like flu and might even affect your ability to daily activities, but they should go away in a few days.
The State Department of Health has worked with partners from across the state to develop a vaccination plan. There are currently five Vaccine Advisory Groups including: the Vaccine Allocation Plan Development Advisory Group, the Ethical Considerations Advisory Group, the Vaccine Review Advisory Group, the Equitable Distribution and Communication Advisory Group, and the Data Advisory Group. Learn more at www.ourshot.in.gov.
