10 Reasons Why Covid-19 Vaccines are Safe and Effective
Although the quick development of a vaccine may be a cause for concern, given the severe global impact of COVID-19, vaccine development efforts were accelerated to address the pandemic.
The science behind the vaccine has been around for decades.
ALL steps were taken to ensure the safety and effectiveness of vaccines:
CDC approval is an intensive process, which requires vaccines to be of highest quality.
Extensive testing and experiments were conducted to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine.
Although COVID-19 vaccines should not be seen as an automatic shield of immunity, they keep you from getting seriously ill and spreading if you were to get COVID-19.
Unvaccinated people who already had COVID-19 are more than 2 times as likely than fully vaccinated people to get COVID-19 again.
The vaccine significantly lowers the risk of hospitalization.
It is IMPOSSIBLE for a COVID-19 vaccine to make you sick with COVID-19.
