Why should I get vaccinated?

COVID-19 vaccines are meant to prevent you from getting COVID-19 and from spreading it to others. However, we still don't know how well COVID-19 vaccines prevent us from spreading the virus to others, so even once you get vaccinated you should continue to do your part and keep wearing a mask and practice physical distancing. Read more at CDC’s Benefits of Getting a COVID-19 Vaccine.

Is the vaccine safe? 

COVID-19 vaccines authorized by the FDA have been shown to be safe and effective in clinical trials. On August 23, 2021 the FDA approved the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. The U.S. vaccine safety system ensures that all vaccines are as safe as possible. Learn how the federal government is working to ensure the safety of COVID-19 vaccines.
