The Truth About the COVID-19 Vaccine

The COVID vaccine was created in record time. This accelerated pace has made many nervous to be vaccinated. They were fast-tracked, but this does not mean they are unsafe. The COVID-19 vaccines were developed so quickly because they were built on previous research into other coronaviruses, and researchers around the world collaborated and shared their data. In addition, mRNA vaccines were developed with readily available materials, and governments fast-tracked clinical trials and vaccine approvals. Like all other vaccines, they were put through standard clinical trials; this included laboratory trials and three phases of clinical trials to determine the safety and effectiveness. 

Misinformation about the COVID-19 vaccine continues to be an issue. You can’t get coronavirus from the vaccine because it does not contain any active viral material. Many assume that you don’t need a vaccine if you have already been sick, but you should be vaccinated to prevent reinfection. Unfortunately, the vaccine will not end masks and social distancing immediately. Full protection may not develop until weeks after the second shot, and vaccinated people may still be able to act as asymptomatic spreaders. The vaccine does not cause autism or damage to children or babies, nor does it weaken the immune system. However, vaccines do protect you against COVID-19 and protect others by building herd immunity.

The CDC recommends that healthcare workers and long-term care residents receive the vaccine first, followed by frontline essential workers and people over 75. The last group to receive the vaccine will be younger people and the rest of the essential worker population. Individual states can adjust these guidelines as they see fit, so it’s essential to stay updated by your local health department and state resources to find out where and when to receive a vaccine. Talk to your doctor about complications before receiving the vaccine. Fight misinformation. Spread just the facts about the COVID vaccine.
