COVID-19 vaccines are safe and help us avoid severe complications from coronavirus infection. Vaccines are, today, the best tool we have to protect our families and stay healthy.
Vaccinating our children against COVID-19 will allow them to feel safer doing everyday activities like going to school, playing with their friends, and visiting family.
Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DO COVID-19 VACCINES WORK?
COVID-19 vaccines are a type of medicine that works by teaching the body how to recognize and fight COVID-19. COVID-19 vaccines help prevent the spread, serious illness, hospitalizations, and deaths caused by COVID-19. COVID-19 vaccines are powerful tools that will help the pandemic end faster.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO GET THE COVID-19 VACCINE?
Vaccination is an effective tool that helps save lives and will bring the pandemic to an end sooner. The more people we get vaccinated, the more we protect ourselves and help protect our loved ones from COVID-19 and its variants.
HOW DO I KNOW IF COVID-19 VACCINES ARE SAFE AND EFFECTIVE?
Both the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) ensure that COVID-19 vaccines that have been approved for emergency use and those that are about to be approved are safe and effective for our community. The FDA and CDC carefully evaluate that all vaccines are as safe as possible and since vaccines are given to millions of people to prevent serious illness, they are evaluated following the highest safety standards. COVID-19 vaccines go through highly rigorous testing that includes vaccinating tens of thousands of people participating in clinical trials to generate information the FDA needs to determine that they are safe and how they work. After the FDA authorizes a COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use, the CDC studies the available information about the COVID-19 vaccine before issuing recommendations for public use. After COVID-19 vaccines are approved, the FDA continues to monitor public safety.
