COVID-19 Vaccine Frequently Asked Questions​

Baptist Health is currently administering the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is administered in two doses separated by 21 days.

  • On the arm at the injection site:
    • Pain
    • Swelling
  • Throughout the rest of the body
    • Fever
    • Chills
    • Tiredness
    • Headache

More people experienced these side effects after the second dose than after the first dose, so vaccine recipients should expect some side effects after either dose.
