Why You Should Get the COVID-19 Vaccine

Why You Should Get the COVID-19 Vaccine

There are many reasons people oppose COVID-19 vaccines, but this is at their own risk because the science proves the vaccines are extremely effective. The research that went into making effective vaccines were rigorously tested for both efficacy and safety. Vaccines are now widely available and at no cost. They are an important tool to help put an end to the pandemic, as wearing masks and social distancing are not enough to reduce the spread of the virus.

COVID-19 Vaccines Are Safe & Effective

The COVID-19 vaccines were developed utilizing established research that has been used by scientists for decades. The vaccines were thoroughly researched with required stages of clinical trials and have been proven safe and effective. In fact, the COVID-19 vaccines received the most intensive safety monitoring in U.S. history. The vaccines can keep you from contracting the potentially deadly virus and spreading it to others, too, which may protect others around you. Even those who do get COVID-19 after being vaccinated, rarely become seriously ill.
