COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective at reducing the risk of contracting COVID-19. For vaccinated individuals, the risk for severe disease and hospitalization is substantially lower. Getting vaccinated is the single best thing you can do to protect yourself, your family and friends, and our community from further spread of COVID-19. Vaccination is recommended for everyone who is eligible to be vaccinated and does not have a medical reason that would advise against vaccination.
