Why get vaccinated?

IT'S SAFE
The COVID-19 vaccine may be new, but the technology used to create it has been around for over 20 years. Safety studies were done in thousands of patients and now millions have already been vaccinated with very limited side effects.

IT’S HIGHLY EFFECTIVE, EVEN AGAINST SOME NEW VARIANTS
The efficacy rate for the three COVID-19 vaccines currently being offered in the United States is between 75– 95%. Studies have shown new strains or variants of the COVID-19 virus are even more contagious, but the good news is research has shown the current vaccines are effective against these new variants.

IT'S THE RIGHT THING TO DO
Getting vaccinated helps prevent you from getting COVID-19, so you are less likely to spread it to others – especially those who are more vulnerable to severe illness and even death. Don’t take that chance.

SIDE EFFECTS ARE MINIMAL
In large clinical trials, most side effects have been minor and typically only last a few days. And remember, experiencing a mild a side effect isn’t necessarily all bad, it means the vaccine is working, and your body is building protection against the virus. The COVID-19 vaccine does not include a live COVID virus, therefore it is impossible for the vaccine to give you the virus.

GET BACK TO WORK, back to LIFE
Less disease in our community means less restrictions - in public spaces, your workplace, gatherings, and travel, which means we can finally see our friends and family again, both here at home and across the world.

HELP END THIS PANDEMIC
The best protection we have is to get vaccinated. The more people that get vaccinated, the faster we can end this pandemic.

IT'S FREE
Everyone can get the COVID-19 vaccine regardless of your ability to pay or whether you have insurance or not.
