Vaccine Safety and Effectiveness
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:
