Health care workers answer questions about the COVID-19 vaccines.
Edith Bracho-Sanchez, MD explains how long after getting a COVID vaccine before you are fully protected.
You need to wait two weeks from the last dose of the vaccine. So, if it’s a two-dose vaccine, you have to wait two weeks after the second dose to be fully protected. If it’s a one-dose vaccine, then it’s two weeks after your one dose.
