Can the vaccine give you COVID-19?



No. None of the COVID-19 vaccines contain the live virus that causes COVID-19.

There are 29 proteins to the actual coronavirus. This vaccine gives you only 1 protein out of the 29.
Then your body makes the antibodies to that 1 protein, giving you immunity to COVID-19.
So there's no way to get COVID-19 from 1 protein of the 29.
