The vaccines can protect you from getting severe COVID-19

Getting vaccinated is the best way to keep yourself, your loved ones, and your community healthy.

Vax and Relax.

COVID-19 can have serious, life-threatening complications. If you get sick, you might spread the disease to friends, family, coworkers, and everyone around you.

If you’ve had the virus, you may have some natural protection, known as immunity, but we don’t know how long this protection lasts. The COVID-19 vaccinations will help protect you by creating an antibody response without having to experience sickness.

Wearing masks and social distancing will reduce your chance of being exposed to the virus or spreading it to others, but these measures are not enough. Vaccines will work with your immune system so it will be ready to fight the virus if you are exposed.
