COVID-19 vaccine, which was developed after decades of research by the world's best medical professionals, significantly lowers the risk for infection, especially as many people begin returning to the activities they have delayed due to the pandemic, including seeing family and friends. The benefits far outweigh the health risks of getting COVID-19 and the very low risk of severe complications from the vaccine. Getting the vaccine protects you, your family, neighbors and anyone else around you from COVID-19 and the disease variants in our area.
