It is 100% understandable that some people need more information and questions answered before they receive the COVID19 the vaccine. If you are still unsure about the vaccine, here is information that many find useful:
- Vaccines are safe and are not experimental
Far from being experimental, these mRNA vaccines are the result of decades of research. They were tested on tens of thousands of volunteers from a wide variety of backgrounds before becoming available to the public. We can have confidence in their safety.
- Vaccines are vital to slowing the spread
The vaccines available in the U.S. are vitally important in slowing the spread of an extremely contagious disease. If you get the vaccine, you not only protect yourself but you drastically slow the spread of COVID19 to others in your family, your business, and your community. And with the Delta variant, slowing the spread has become more important than ever.
- The vaccination is recommended for ages 12+
The COVID19 vaccination is recommended for all people 12 years and older, including people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to get pregnant now, or might become pregnant in the future.
- There is no evidence of fertility problems
There is currently no evidence that any vaccines, including COVID19 vaccines, cause fertility problems in women or men.
- Pregnancy and COVID19
It is recommended that pregnant and recently pregnant people get the COVID19 vaccine. Pregnant and recently pregnant people are more likely to get severely ill with COVID19 compared with non-pregnant people.
- Pfizer has full approval for its vaccine
The U.S. FDA (Food & Drug Administration) has granted full approval of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID19 vaccine. Remember, children 12 years and older can get this vaccination.
If you have concerns or believe you don’t need to get the COVID19 vaccination, we encourage you to speak to a healthcare professional.
