LHSFNA Vaccine Facts
SAFE AND EFFECTIVE
Are the COVID-19 vaccines safe?
Yes. All authorized COVID-19 vaccines have gone through the same rigorous procedures and safety tests and met the same standard as vaccines for other diseases. A system called v-safe – an after vaccination health checker – is in place across the U.S. so the CDC can make sure the vaccines stay safe.
How effective are the COVID-19 vaccines?
The Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine is 95 percent effective and the Moderna vaccine is 94 percent effective at preventing mild and severe symptoms of COVID-19. This effectiveness holds across age, sex and racial and ethnic groups. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is 85% effective at preventing severe/critical COVID-19 infection. All of the COVID-19 vaccines prevent severe disease, hospitalization and death.
BENEFITS OF VACCINE
What are the benefits of getting a COVID-19 vaccine?
In addition to helping protect against infection, the vaccine will help keep you from getting seriously sick if you do get COVID-19. It’s much safer than the natural protection that comes with getting and recovering from COVID-19. This disease can have serious, life-threatening complications and lasting health effects.
