ABOUT THE VACCINE
WHAT IS THE COVID-19 VACCINE?
When anything foreign enters your body, it is attacked by your immune system which works to protect you. The COVID-19 vaccine trains your immune system to fight the specific virus that causes COVID-19 so that your body is prepared to fight the disease if you are exposed.
DOES THE VACCINE HAVE VIRUS IN IT?
No, the COVID-19 vaccine does not contain any trace of the virus. It uses state-of-the-art techniques to train your immune system to realize what the coronavirus looks like without exposing you to the illness.
IS THE VACCINE SAFE?
We trust that the COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. The CDC, as well as doctors, pharmacists, and scientists across the country, agree that the vaccine is our best defense against the virus and the fastest way to end the pandemic.
