How can the COVID-19 Vaccine Benefit You & Your Family?
COVID-19 can have serious, life-threatening complications, and there is no way to know how COVID-19 will affect you. COVID-19 vaccination is one of the most effective ways of halting the spread of the virus, and it is an important tool to help us get back to normal. There are currently three vaccines available in the United States. These vaccines have been recommended for use after they have been studied for safety and efficacy at preventing COVID-19.
- The COVID-19 vaccine may prevent you from getting a COVID-19 infection.
- Experts believe that getting a COVID-19 vaccine may keep you from getting seriously ill even if you do get COVID-19.
- If you get sick with COVID-19, you could spread the disease to friends, family, and others around you. Getting vaccinated yourself may also protect people around you, particularly people at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19.
- The COVID-19 vaccine is an important tool to help stop the pandemic.
