If you take one of the COVID-19 vaccines:

  1. It will effectively eliminates the risk of Covid death.
  2. It nearly eliminates the risk of hospitalization.
  3. It will drastically reduce your the ability to infect somebody else.

There were about 75,000 individuals combined who participated in the vaccine trials for the Moderna, Pfizer, Novavax, Astra-Zeneca, and J&J vaccines. Of those::

  • ZERO were hospitalized for COVID
  • ZERO died from COVID
  • ZERO died from the vaccine

But why are some people reluctant to get the COVID vaccine? They say:

  • Vaccines aren’t 100% effective.
  • Vaccinated people may still be contagious.
  • The vaccine might not work as well on virus variants.
  • You can’t throw away your mask even after you’ve been vaccinated. So why bother?

Bottom line: COVID vaccines are safe and extremely effective. Get it when you’re able to.
