I have recently received my COVID-19 vaccine. Can I still get COVID-19 despite having the vaccine?

Public Health England state the following:

The COVID-19 vaccine that you have had has been shown to reduce the chance of you suffering from COVID-19 disease.

It may take a few weeks for your body to build up some protection from the vaccine. Like all medicines, no vaccine is completely effective, so you should continue to take recommended precautions to avoid infection. Some people may still get COVID-19 despite having a vaccination, but this should be less severe.
