General San Benito County Public Health Information:

“COVID-19 Vaccines cannot cause an infection or positive result on a diagnostic test. None of the vaccines alter your DNA in any way. The vaccines trigger an immune response that produced antibodies, which protect you from severe infection. After being vaccinated it is still important to wear a mask, practice social distancing and wash hands frequently with soap and water or use hand sanitizer,” San Benito County Public Health.
