ST. LOUIS – The COVID-19 vaccine will not make a person test positive or have a false positive test result for COVID after being vaccinated.
The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services is working to debunk rumors about the vaccine that have been circulating on the internet.
A COVID-19 test, PCR test and antigen test all test for active disease, not immunity. There is not a live virus in the mRNA COVID vaccine.
The only test that may show up positive is an antibody test.
