“Can a COVID-19 vaccine make me sick?”
You can’t get COVID-19 from a vaccine, but you may feel some side effects like fever, chills, and fatigue. Current mRNA COVID-19 vaccines use temporary pieces of genetic code from the virus to stimulate your body’s immune response. This cannot cause COVID-19. Instead, it gives your body the tools it needs to fight the COVID-19 virus.
Sign up today to get vaccinated
After you sign up, you will be notified when you are eligible for vaccination. If you are already eligible, you can schedule an appointment.
We recommend selecting a provider based on what’s convenient for you. Choose only one provider and proactively contact the provider to cancel any unneeded appointments so they can be available for someone else.
Kaiser Permanente is currently vaccinating front-line health care workers, staff and residents of long-term care facilities, pre-K-12 educators and workers in licensed child care programs, and people 65 and older. As supply becomes available, it will expand appointments to other eligible categories.
Mobile COVID-19 vaccination clinics are coming to Pueblo. These clinics allow people to access the vaccine right in their home communities. Walk-ups and alternate transportation welcomed.
Because vaccine supplies are limited, not all current recipients will have access to the vaccine at the same time. We are coordinating with health agencies, health care providers, pharmacies, and diverse community partners to distribute the vaccine as equitably and efficiently as possible.
