Vaccine FAQs

Is the COVID-19 vaccine safe? Does it work?
The COVID-19 vaccine is as safe and effective as common childhood vaccinations that everyone gets, like the MMR vaccine, which protects against measles, mumps, and rubella. Read on for more information about the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine.
What is getting vaccinated like?
Getting vaccinated for COVID-19 is a lot like getting any other vaccine. You may have some soreness in your arm, and it’s possible to experience other mild side effects. These are not symptoms of COVID-19 but rather signs that your body is building up immunity.
Why should I get vaccinated?
Getting the COVID-19 vaccine is the only way to prevent yourself from catching COVID-19. Even if you’ve already had the virus, a vaccine can prevent you from getting it again. In addition, researchers estimate that over 80 percent of the U.S. population needs to be vaccinated for enough people to be protected against the virus to contain the spread.
