Is a COVID-19 vaccine necessary?
Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 will be one of the best ways to protect our communities and stop the spread of the virus. By stopping the spread of COVID-19, we can keep businesses and schools open, and return to doing more of the things we enjoy together.

Is the COVID-19 vaccine safe?
A safe and effective vaccine is the top priority. While vaccine development was accelerated due to the pandemic, it did not impact important safety steps. There are long standing systems in place to ensure that all vaccines are as safe as possible.
