They will let me know when it is my turn.

I make an appointment to get the vaccine.

The vaccine against Covid-19 isn’t obligatory.

The doctor will tell me if I can have the vaccine.

I must say if I want to have the vaccine or not. It’s my choice!

To help me decide, I can talk to:

  • my doctor,
  • my friends, my family,
  • my guardian,
  • someone who works for the Red Cross.

The vaccine is given by a healthcare worker.

They give me an injection in my arm.

The injection hurts a little, but it doesn’t last long.

After the vaccine.

For 1 or 2 days, I might have:

  • some redness where I had the injection,

  • soreness in my muscles.

To help me feel better:

  • I rest,
  • I drink plenty of water.

If I feel very unwell, I call my doctor.

After the vaccine, I continue to social distance.

Everyone continues to social distance.
