COVID-19 vaccines help protect you by creating an antibody response without having to experience potentially severe illness or post-COVID -19 conditions. And though it's still possible to get sick after being vaccinated, COVID-19 immunizations are proven to help prevent severe illness which can be lifesaving.
Who should get vaccinated?
Everyone 5 years and older should get COVID-19 vaccines. You’re best protected when you stay up to date with vaccinations.
Who’s most at risk for getting seriously ill from these diseases?
High-risk groups for serious illness or death from flu and COVID include:
- People over 65 - More than 81% of COVID-19 deaths occur in this age group.
- Those with respiratory illnesses such as asthma or illnesses that lower their immunity
If you have a chronic disease or immune condition, talk with your doctor about the vaccine option right for you.
What should I know about the COVID vaccine?
The COVID-19 vaccine was developed under the most intensive safety monitoring program in U.S. history. It’s important to remember:
- Although you may experience flu-like symptoms after a COVID-19 shot, these side effects are temporary and far less severe than getting COVID-19.
- Getting the vaccine is a safer, more reliable way of protecting yourself from COVID-19 than getting sick with the disease, especially since it can have long-term health effects.
- COVID-19 vaccines were developed using science that has been around for decades.
- Scientists have conducted clinical COVID-19 trials with thousands of children and adults and have found no serious safety concerns for this vaccine.
- Hundreds of millions of people in the United States have gotten their COVID-19 vaccines.
- The benefits of getting your COVID-19 vaccination outweigh any known and potential risks. Serious side effects from the COVID-19 immunization are rare.
- If you’re pregnant, you can – and should – get your COVID shot.
