What You Need to Know About the COVID-19 Vaccine

The COVID-19 pandemic has been a stressful and often frightening time for many people, including those working on the frontlines. The COVID-19 vaccines are a safe and effective way to protect against the virus. The Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) review of the vaccines was thorough and rigorous, and no steps were skipped in the process to review the safety of the vaccines. The FDA decided that the vaccine met safety and efficacy standards based on the currently available data from more than 43,000 diverse volunteers, and it was felt the benefits of the vaccine outweighed any side effects.
