Let’s talk about the COVID-19 vaccine!

Trying to decide if you should get the COVID-19 Vaccine? Here are some facts that will help you make that decision.

Why should I get the COVID-19 vaccine?

In general, all COVID-19 vaccines help to prevent severe infections, hospitalizations, or death from coronavirus. Individuals with chronic medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, or pregnant people are more likely to experience severe or fatal infections if they are infected with COVID-19.

How was the COVID-19 vaccine developed so fast?

The Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines were made via a process using mRNA, which was developed in the 1990s and has been tested many times over the years. Collaboration between the pharmaceutical industry and the federal government helped offset the financial and time costs of the development of the COVID-19 vaccine.

How do the COVID-19 Vaccines Work?

COVID-19 vaccines help our bodies develop immunity to the virus that causes COVID-19 without us having to get the illness. Different types of vaccines work in different ways to offer protection, but with all types of vaccines, the body is left with a supply of “memory” T-lymphocytes as well as B-lymphocytes that will remember how to fight that virus in the future.
