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.

WHAT IS mRNA?

mRNA is like a set of instructions; it teaches your body to build everything it needs to make you immune from the virus. The mRNA “instructions” of the vaccine train your body to build spike proteins – perfectly safe proteins that look like the coronavirus, but are not harmful in any way. When your body sees these spike proteins, it learns to fight and destroy them. Once your immune system is able to destroy the spike proteins, it remembers what they look like and destroys anything that resembles a spike protein, including COVID-19.

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.
