What to Expect After Your Vaccine

The vaccines may cause side effects in some people, like sore muscles, feeling tired, or mild fever. These reactions mean the vaccine is working to help teach your body how to fight COVID-19 if you are exposed. For most people, these side effects will last no longer than a day or two. Having these side effects does not mean that you have COVID-19.

COVID-19 Vaccines Out-of-Pocket Costs

There are no out-of-pocket costs for COVID-19 vaccinations at the health department. 

Vaccine Cards

You will receive a vaccination card when you get your first dose. Please bring your card with you when you receive additional doses. 

Replacement Cards

If your vaccine record card is lost or damaged, please contact us at [email protected] to ask for a new card. This service is only available for people who got their vaccine doses from the Riley County Health Department. There is a $5.00 service charge for the replacement.

If you received your vaccine at a different location, please contact them to request a replacement.
