  • If you get fully vaccinated it will make you less likely to get COVID-19 infection.
  • Getting a COVID-19 vaccine also helps keep you from getting seriously ill even if you catch infection.
  • Getting vaccinated yourself may also protect people around you, particularly people at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19.
  • Vaccination may reduce spread of the virus that causes COVID-19.
  • The risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19 far outweighs any benefits of natural immunity. COVID-19 vaccination will help protect you by creating an antibody (immune system) response without having to experience sickness.
  • COVID-19 vaccination will be an important tool to help stop the pandemic.
  • Evidence suggests that fully vaccinated people are less likely to be infected without showing symptoms (called an asymptomatic infection) and potentially less likely to spread the virus that causes COVID-19 to others.
