About the COVID-19 Vaccines
In December 2020, the United States mass vaccination program became a crucial part of the effort to prevent people from becoming seriously ill or dying from COVID-19. There are currently three COVID-19 vaccines authorized for use in the United States and everyone who is 6 months and older is encouraged to get vaccinated.
The COVID vaccine is EFFECTIVE: the vaccines currently authorized for use in the United States are proving effective in keeping people from becoming seriously ill or dying from COVID.
The COVID vaccine is SAFE: the vaccines have been tested and millions of people around the world have gotten them. Serious side effects are very rare. Some people may have side effects that feel like flu; these are normal signs that your body is building protection and should go away in a few days.
The COVID vaccine is FREE: there is no charge for the COVID vaccine and at LLHD clinics you do not need insurance or identification! Find an upcoming clinic near you here.
