Frequently asked questions:


  • When a person is infected with the virus that causes COVID-19, their body takes several weeks to develop different types of white blood cells that fight off the disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Over the course of a few days or weeks, the body tries to fight off the infection by developing an immune response to COVID-19 germs. If the infection is defeated, the body keeps some “memory” cells that remember how it fought the disease, which allow it to quickly spring into action if the person is infected again.
  • Vaccines prepare the body’s immune system to fight off disease without needing that experience. A COVID-19 vaccination includes these “memory” cells (along with some others) that help the body fight off COVID-19.
  • Just like the immune system needs time to build immunity while fighting COVID-19, the body needs time to build immunity after getting a COVID-19 vaccination. This means even those who get the vaccine may need to wait some time before they are protected against the virus.

  • One currently authorized COVID-19 vaccine, manufactured by Janssen (Johnson & Johnson), requires a single dose.
  • Two of the currently authorized COVID-19 vaccines require two shots for optimal effectiveness, according to the CDC.
    • The Pfizer-BioNTech shot has a recommended three-week (21-day) wait time between doses.
    • The Moderna shot has a recommended four-week (28-day) wait time in between doses.
  • The CDC advises getting the second dose as close to the recommended dates as possible. However, second doses are still considered valid if administered within a grace period of four days early and up to six weeks (42 days) after the first dose.

  • According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, “the U.S. vaccine safety system works to make sure that all vaccines are as safe as possible.” All vaccines go through careful testing and continuous monitoring for problems and side effects. So far, no serious safety concerns have been reported about any of the three approved vaccines.
  • Those with common allergies, such as to certain foods or latex, can receive the COVID-19 vaccine, according to the CDC. Those who have had severe allergic reactions or any allergic reaction to a vaccine or other injection should contact their doctor before getting the vaccine, according to the CDC.

  • If you’re an adult, yes. As of April 6, anyone 16 years or older is eligible to receive a vaccine at one of the state-run mass vaccination sites. Gov. Larry Hogan says he will direct all vaccination sites in the state to make Marylanders 16 years or older eligible starting April 12.

  • Yes. While the state is vaccinating all Marylanders aged 16 and up, your county may be in a different phase. For example, Anne Arundel County is in Phase 1B. County governments have been updating their websites with the most recent information. These are the COVID-19 vaccine information pages for Maryland’s five largest jurisdictions:
  • Mass vaccination clinics in Baltimore City and Prince George’s County — where residents of any Maryland jurisdiction can be vaccinated — are following state guidelines.

  • If you are currently eligible for a vaccine in Maryland or will be soon, you can use Maryland OneStop to preregister for an appointment at a mass vaccination site. Create an account at OneStop and fill out the form. OneStop will contact you with instructions on how to schedule an appointment.
  • Except for the mass vaccination sites, the state has a relatively decentralized distribution plan. Acting State Health Secretary Dennis R. Schrader told state lawmakers in February that residents should sign up for multiple waitlists, but take their names off other waitlists once they secure an appointment.

  • In most cases, you can get a vaccine if you live or work in a county. Maryland’s five largest jurisdictions — Baltimore City and Montgomery, Prince George’s, Baltimore and Anne Arundel counties — will vaccinate eligible patients who live or work within their borders.
  • If you live outside of Maryland, you can still apply for a vaccine in Maryland, but the vaccine distribution locations will prioritize Marylanders first, according to the state.

  • According to the CDC, the federal government will cover the cost of COVID-19 vaccines and vaccinations.
  • According to the Maryland Insurance Administration, you cannot be charged for a COVID-19 vaccine. The Maryland Insurance Administration asks that if you are asked to pay for a vaccine, you call this number: 800-492-6116.
  • Those getting vaccinated should watch out for scammers, as incidents of unauthorized charges for COVID-19 vaccines and treatments have been reported.

  • According to the CDC, experts are not sure what percentage of people need to get the vaccine to achieve herd immunity.
  • Herd immunity is reached when enough people are protected — either because they contracted the disease and recovered, or because they were vaccinated — and spread becomes more difficult. This protects those who cannot be vaccinated, such as newborns.
  • The CDC and other experts are actively studying herd immunity for COVID-19 and plan to release information as it is available.

  • According to the National Institutes of Health, two doses of the Pfizer-BioNtech or Moderna vaccines are required for those vaccines to be fully effective against COVID-19. All of the same precautions that one has taken before receiving their first dose should still be taken in between doses, and within a two-week period after both doses or after one dose of the Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine.

  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention do not recommend getting vaccinated if you are currently fighting off a COVID-19 infection, whether you have symptoms or not. This also applies if you are waiting to receive your second vaccine shot. The CDC recommends waiting until you have fully recovered from your infection and left quarantine to get the shot.

  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Prevaccinaton Checklist says feeling unwell does not necessarily preclude you from receiving a vaccine.
  • According to WUSA9, it depends on the severity of your sickness. If you have a runny nose or a cold, it should be fine for you to go ahead and get vaccinated.
  • If you have a more moderate to severe sickness, consult your physician.
  • A reason for waiting is because if you begin to develop symptoms like fever or muscle aches, your doctor will be able to differentiate between your symptoms being a side effect of the vaccine or from your pre-existing illness.

  • According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, you can gather indoors with fully vaccinated people without wearing a mask. You can gather indoors with unvaccinated people from one other household (for example, visiting with relatives who all live together) without masks, unless any of those people or anyone they live with has an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19.

  • According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, you should still take steps to protect yourself and others in many situations, like wearing a mask, staying at least 6 feet apart from others, and avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces. You should also still avoid medium or large-sized gatherings.
  • You should still delay domestic and international travel.
  • You should still watch out for symptoms of COVID-19, especially if you’ve been around someone who is sick. If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you should get tested and stay home and away from others.
  • You will still need to follow guidance at your workplace.

  • The safety and efficacy of mixing mRna vaccines — like Pfizer-BioNtech and Moderna — has not yet been evaluated. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says both doses should come from the same product.
  • In exceptional situations, when the same vaccine is not available, any mRna vaccine can be administered at least 28 days after the first dose was received.
  • If the same vaccine is not available, the CDC recommends waiting up to six weeks to receive the same mRna vaccine rather than mixing different vaccines.
  • Similarly, the safety and efficacy of mixing a Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) COVID-19 vaccine after receiving Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna has not yet been established. Only in limited situations, when the same mRNA vaccine cannot be administered following the first dose, can a second dose of an mRNA vaccine be fulfilled with a single dose of the Janssen vaccine.
