Will any of the COVID-19 vaccines make me sick with COVID-19?

None of the COVID-19 vaccines available in the United States contain live COVID-19 virus, so it cannot make you sick with COVID-19. The vaccines use other methods to teach your immune system to recognize and defend against the COVID-19 virus. For more information, click here.
