What is V-Safe? >
V-safe is a smart-phone based tool used to monitor side effects after getting the COVID-19 vaccine. After enrolling, you will receive text messages that will take you to an online survey to ask about side affects you may have. These text messages come daily for the first week after your vaccine, then weekly for the next 5 weeks, and then final check-ins at 3 months, 6 months, and 12 months after your final dose. If you do have side effects that impact your life, you may receive a phone call from the CDC so they can learn more.
We encourage all of our patients to enroll in v-safe. It is the easiest and fastest way for us to learn about the safety of the COVID-19 vaccines.
