The vaccine is proven to be safe and effective

The speed of vaccine development was possible because research and data were shared transparently on a scale never attempted before. Every study, and every phase of every trial, was carefully reviewed and approved by the FDA, under both the Trump and Biden administrations. Tens of thousands of people from different races, ages, and genders were included in the trials to make absolutely sure every vaccine is safe.

Vaccines are necessary even if you’ve already had COVID-19

COVID-19 vaccines provide a high degree of protection against becoming seriously ill and dying from the disease. A recent study from the CDC demonstrated that COVID-19 survivors who did NOT get vaccinated were twice as likely to get reinfected, compared to those who had survived an infection and then been vaccinated.

The vaccine is available to everyone, FREE of cost

Everyone will be able to get the vaccine free of cost in St. Louis County. Both walk-up and appointment options are available for all County residents. Many employers are offering paid sick days if you experience any side effects after getting the shot.

More than one million shots have already been given in St. Louis County

Proof that the vaccines are safe and effective is all around us. Hundreds of thousands of people in our community have already been vaccinated, which has dramatically decreased the number of people hospitalized by COVID-19. As new variants continue to spread across Missouri, it’s more important than ever that we all get vaccinated.

Anyone over the age of 12 can receive a vaccine

At first, vaccines were reserved for at-risk populations. In recent months, the CDC has opened eligibility for anyone over the age of 12 to receive the vaccine.

You may experience mild side effects

It is true that the COVID-19 vaccine comes with the possibility of side effects. You may feel tired and feverish, and your arm may be sore after you get your shot.That said, side effects are generally mild and typically last less than 24 hours. Side effects also signify that the vaccine is working.

The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require two shots, Johnson & Johnson requires one

You need two doses of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines to get the necessary protection from the virus, given 3–4 weeks apart. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine only requires a single shot.
