F.A.Q.

Why should I get a COVID-19 vaccine?

Stopping a pandemic requires using all the tools available. Vaccines work with your immune system so your body will be ready to fight the virus if you are exposed. Other steps, like wearing masks and social distancing, help reduce your chance of being exposed to the virus or spreading it to others. Together, COVID-19 vaccination and following the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) recommendations to protect yourself and others will offer the best protection from COVID-19.

Is natural immunity from the COVID-19 disease better than immunity from the vaccine?

​Getting COVID-19 may offer some natural protection, known as immunity. But experts don’t know how long this protection lasts, and the risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19 far outweighs any benefits of natural immunity. COVID-19 vaccination will help protect you by creating an antibody response without having to experience sickness.

Both natural immunity and immunity produced by a vaccine are important aspects of COVID-19 that experts are trying to learn more about, and CDC will keep the public informed as new evidence becomes available.

How many vaccines are available nationally?

Currently, Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines are available which require two doses. Johnson & Johnson vaccine has received an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the FDA and only requires one dose.

How many trials were completed and how successful were they? What side effects came out of the trials?

​Currently, clinical trials are evaluating investigational COVID-19 vaccines in many thousands of study participants to generate scientific data and other information for the FDA to determine their safety and effectiveness. These clinical trials are being conducted according to the rigorous standards set forth by FDA in their June 2020 guidance document, Development and Licensure of Vaccines to Prevent COVID-19. If FDA determines that a vaccine meets its safety and effectiveness standards, it can make these vaccines available for use in the United States by approval or emergency use authorization.

Can my kids get the COVID-19 vaccine?

The Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine is not yet approved for children under the age of 18. The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is not yet approved for children under the age of 16. More research is needed to make sure any COVID-19 vaccine will be safe and effective for infants, kids and teens.
