The COVID-19 vaccines have been rigorously tested in large clinical trials involving tens of thousands of people, and have been shown to be safe and effective at preventing COVID-19 infections, hospitalizations, and deaths.
Like all vaccines, the COVID-19 vaccines can cause side effects, but most are mild and go away within a few days. Common side effects include pain and swelling at the injection site, fatigue, headache, muscle aches, and fever. Serious side effects are very rare, but can occur.
The benefits of getting vaccinated against COVID-19 far outweigh the risks of potential side effects. COVID-19 is a serious and potentially deadly disease, and getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your community. It is important to talk to your healthcare provider if you have any concerns or questions about the COVID-19 vaccines
