Will I be contagious to others if I get the vaccine?

No. The unique nature of COVID-19 has required a unique response when it comes to a vaccine. Moderna and Pfizer have created a vaccine which uses messenger RNA (mRNA). A nucleic acid, mRNA is responsible for guiding how your body responds to an invading organism like this virus. In action, the Moderna and Pfizer vaccinations will allow mRNA to create the antibodies necessary to defend the virus that causes COVID-19 without the need to inject virus particles into the body.
