Frequently Asked Questions about the COVID-19 VaccineCan the COVID-19 vaccine make me test positive on a COVID-19 test?
Short answer: NO.
Long Answer: COVID-19 diagnostic tests look for either Viral RNA (PCR) or viral antigens. There is no mechanism that exists that would cause a positive test on PCR, and there is no evidence that it can cause a false positive in antigen tests. It may cause a positive on antibody tests, but research is still being conducted.
