Things you need to know about the COVID-19 Vaccine
Your safety is the top priority of researchers and manufacturers who created the COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine development process was similar to steps taken to develop the flu and measles vaccines. Clinical trials, FDA evaluation and advisory group review were part of this process. The COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. The vaccine will help keep you from getting COVID-19 and will protect other people around you. The COVID-19 vaccine is available at no charge. Adults and those 5 years and older are encouraged to get the vaccine.
