People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:
This list does not include all possible symptoms. CDC will continue to update this list as we learn more about COVID-19.
*This list is not all possible symptoms. Please call your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning to you. Call 911 or call ahead to your local emergency facility: Notify the operator that you are seeking care for someone who has or may have COVID-19.
COVID-19 is primarily transmitted from person-to-person through respiratory droplets. These droplets are released when someone with COVID-19 sneezes, coughs, or talks. Infectious droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. To reduce the risk of contracting COVID-19, CDC recommends maintaining a physical distance of at least 1.8 meters (6ft) between persons. Recent data suggest that there can be transmission of COVID-19 through droplets of those with mild symptoms or those who do not feel ill.
COVID-19 can cause severe medical complications and lead to death in some people. There is no way to know how COVID-19 will affect you. If you get COVID-19, you could spread the disease to family, friends, and others around you.
Getting a COVID-19 vaccine can help protect you by creating an antibody response in your body without your having to become sick with COVID-19.
A COVID-19 vaccine is more than 90% effective. If you get infected, the vaccine might keep you from becoming seriously ill or developing severe complications.
Getting vaccinated can also help protect people around you, particularly people at increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19.
A COVID-19 vaccine can cause mild side effects, including:
You will be monitored for 15 minutes after getting a COVID-19 vaccine to see if you have an immediate reaction. Most reactions happen with the first few days after vaccination and last no more than three days. If you experience side effects after getting a COVID-19 vaccine, it doesn’t mean that you have COVID-19. Take time to rest and recover. If you develop a fever, stay home. However, it’s not necessary to get a COVID-19 test or quarantine.
If you have a reaction that prevents you from eating, sleeping, or working, contact your doctor. Also, contact your doctor if you have a reaction that lasts longer than three days.
Signs of an allergic reaction include hives, swelling of the face and throat, difficulty breathing, a fast heartbeat, dizziness, and weakness. If you have any of these signs, seek care immediately.
No. Experts want to learn more about the protection that a COVID-19 vaccine provides and how long immunity lasts before changing safety recommendations. Factors such as how many people get vaccinated and how the virus is spreading in communities will also affect these recommendations.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the following precautions:
Yes. If you’ve had COVID-19, wait until 90 days after your diagnosis to get a COVID-19 vaccine. Getting COVID-19 might offer some natural protection or immunity from reinfection with the virus that causes COVID-19. But it’s not clear how long this protection lasts. Because reinfection is possible and COVID-19 can cause severe medical complications, it might be recommended that people who have already had COVID-19 get a COVID-19 vaccine.
Rapid COVID-19 Testing is available at Vibrant Health for new and established patients who have symptoms or have been exposed to COVID19. Rapid COVID-19 test results are available within one hour.
