Will the vaccine cause me to test positive on a COVID-19 test?

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 the 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.
Who is eligible for a COVID-19 booster dose?
All Johnson & Johnson Janssen vaccine recipients over the age of 18 are eligible for a booster dose of either the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines at least two months after their initial dose.
Moderna and Pfizer booster doses are now available for anyone over the age of 64, as well as anyone between the ages of 18 and 64 who are either at high risk of severe illness from COVID-19 or have frequent institutional or occupational exposure to COVID-19. At least six months is recommended between the initial vaccination series and the booster dose for both Pfizer and Moderna vaccine recipients.
Can I mix and match my COVID-19 vaccine and booster?
Yes! The FDA has authorized “mixing and matching” COVID-19 vaccines and booster doses. This refers to receiving a booster dose from a different manufacturer than your primary vaccination. For example, someone who received Pfizer vaccines for their primary series may receive a Moderna booster dose.
