Local Experts


Hundreds of millions of Americans have been safely vaccinated against COVID-19, with the vast majority experiencing minor, temporary side effects. The safety and efficacy data has also been reviewed by an independent expert committee called the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), which also recommended the vaccines.

No safety concerns were identified for the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines in subgroup analyses by age, race, ethnicity, underlying medical conditions, or previous SARS-CoV-2 infection. In addition, the single-dose Janssen vaccine has also met safety and efficacy standards.

Bottom line: All vaccines are good vaccines. You, your family and your community will be safer with each individual that chooses vaccination. Vaccinations have been proven to prevent severe illness and death caused by COVID-19.
