is the grammar correct in the question?

did you get vaccinated?

I know we are not supposed to use past tense for verb with did but I can't understand this one.

You are right that a base verb should follow "did"... and it does. You have the verb 'get'.

It's quite common to use 'get' + a verb in the past participle form, even if talking about a future event, for example "let's get started". Equally, you could ask "are you going to get vaccinated?

It would of course be entirely incorrect if you asked "did you got....".

  • @Man_From_India I haven't suggested that is the case. Trying to keep the answer simple and not over-complicate it.

  • @Man_From_India Can you explain what "even if...." means?

    Hi Astralbee, sorry friend. I thought that sentence did suggest two meaning. But I was wrong. And so there was no need of keeping those misleading comments. Sorry for wasting your time and troubling you. May 21, 2021 at 0:34
