Can I get COVID-19 from the vaccine?

No, it is impossible to get COVID-19 from any of the authorized vaccines.  

None of the COVID-19 vaccines contain the live virus that causes COVID-19. The goal for each vaccine is to teach our immune systems how to recognize and fight the virus that causes COVID-19. Sometimes this process can cause symptoms such as fever. These symptoms are normal and are a sign that the body is building immunity.
