FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
How do vaccines work?
When you are exposed to an infection, your body develops antibodies that fight and clear the infection. When you receive a vaccine, your body recognizes the vaccine as foreign and makes antibodies that prevent you from getting infected with the disease in the future.
Are COVID-19 vaccines safe?
Yes. Even under Operation Warp Speed, COVID-19 vaccines must adhere to the strict safety standards and follow all vaccine development protocols established by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). After a vaccine is approved, the FDA will continue to monitor its safety and effectiveness.
