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

Millions of Americans have received a both doses of the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines, 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 for emergency use.

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. The data from the Janssen's trials are based on tens of thousands of participants, and it shows that the vaccine is highly effective against severe forms of COVID-19.

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.

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. Data from clinical trials indicate:

  • 95% efficacy rate for Pfizer’s vaccine
  • 94.5% efficacy rate for Moderna’s vaccine
  • 85% efficacy rate (for preventing severe disease) for Janssen's vaccine
  • 90% efficacy rate for AstraZeneca’s vaccine (not yet authorized for emergency use in U.S.)
The different types of vaccines were not studied in head-to-head comparisons or trials; therefore, they should not be compared to each other.
