HOW DO I KNOW THAT A COVID-19 VACCINE WILL BE SAFE?

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.

Available vaccines have met all safety and efficacy standards. 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.

Phase 1a

Get a Vaccine

Vaccine is now widely available through providers throughout Missouri.

Safety

Safety First

Although the timeline has been accelerated, it doesn't mean we skipped the integrity of the trial and approval processes.

Safety

Ethics Matter

The vaccine will be made available based on ethical principles of maximizing benefits, minimizing harm, striving for equity, justice and fairness, and making transparent decisions. Ethical considerations included prioritizing Missourians who have been disproportionally impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Safety

Lifesaving Vaccine

COVID-19 vaccines are lifesaving developments. Vaccinations have saved hundreds of millions of lives over the last century. Scientists have developed vaccines for Smallpox, Polio, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Hepatitis, Meningitis and more. Studies show that higher vaccination coverage is associated with lower rates of incidence of COVID-19 and mortality related to COVID-19.
