Frequently Asked Questions
Getting vaccinated will help protect you, your family members, friends, coworkers, and our most vulnerable—like long term care residents—from COVID-19. The vaccines are highly effective in preventing individuals from getting sick or seriously ill from COVID-19 as well as slowing the spread. The vaccines are the best tool we have, especially when new variants of the virus emerge.
Ultimately, when we all get vaccinated, we can help end the pandemic.
Yes. The vaccines have been subject to the most extensive safety monitoring effort in U.S. history. They were thoroughly tested in hundreds of thousands of individuals and the data from those clinical trials was rigorously examined. The vaccines continue to be monitored closely to ensure their safety and severe reactions to the vaccine have been extremely rare.
It’s important that your COVID-19 vaccinations stay up to date. Vaccine effectiveness wanes over time and new COVID-19 variants continue to emerge. If it’s been a couple months since your last COVID-19 vaccination, it may be time to get a bivalent booster shot (find out if you’re eligible). Learn more about bivalent boosters.
It’s time to roll up our sleeves.
COVID-19 has been hard on everyone, but especially for those who live and work in long term care. The adoption of safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines is a lifesaving turning point in the fight against this virus. It’s important that everyone get vaccinated, so we can protect our nation’s seniors, our loved ones, our colleagues, and ourselves.
