Vaccine Safety and Effectiveness
On August 23, 2021, the FDA approved the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for the prevention of COVID-19 disease in individuals 16 and older. The Pfizer vaccine is also authorized for emergency use for individuals 12 to 15 for prevention of serious COVID-19 related illness. Additionally, vaccines by Moderna and Johnson & Johnson have been authorized for emergency use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and are recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as safe and effective treatments for the prevention of COVID-19.
Clinical trials involving tens of thousands of people for each vaccine have shown that the vaccines are extremely effective in preventing serious illness from COVID-19 with no serious safety concerns. Side effects reported include a sore arm at the injection site, fatigue, headache, chills and fever. While side effects are sometimes higher than for a typical flu vaccine, they are lower in many ways than side effects from the leading vaccine to prevent shingles.
Side effects are signs that a vaccine is working and are related to your immune system being stimulated to produce antibodies against infection. Side effects from vaccination are far less significant than health impacts from COVID-19.
Pharmacists, infectious disease doctors, critical care nurses and other experts at Cone Health continue to speak publicly through media interviews and direct communication with our patients and communities about the safety, effectiveness and importance of vaccines to eliminate COVID-19.
In addition, reliable information on vaccine safety, effectiveness, side effects and more is available on the following websites:
We agree with the CDC on what we can do to help our communities get back to normal: Getting “back to normal” is going to take all of our tools. If we use all the tools we have, we stand the best chance of getting our families, communities, schools and workplaces “back to normal” sooner:
Masking, social distancing and hand hygiene should be followed by everyone, including those who have been vaccinated.
Thank you for every effort you make to stay safe and to keep others safe. We look forward to being right here with you in every step of our journey to eliminate COVID-19 in our community.
