- The vaccine may not be recommended if you have certain health conditions so talk to your doctor if you have concerns.
- Significant reactions to the vaccine happen but are rare. You will be monitored on-site after you receive the vaccine for any allergic reactions.
- Getting the vaccine may help keep you from getting seriously ill and help you fight of the COVID-19 virus if you get it.
