I'M PREGNANT (OR WANT TO BECOME PREGNANT SOON). CURRENTLY, THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT COVID-19 VACCINATIONS CAUSE ISSUES WITH PREGNANCY OR BEING ABLE TO GET PREGNANT IN THE FUTURE.

MORE INFORMATION

I'VE ALREADY HAD COVID-19. EVEN IF YOU HAVE ALREADY RECOVERED FROM COVID-19, IT IS POSSIBLE—ALTHOUGH RARE—THAT YOU COULD BE INFECTED WITH THE VIRUS THAT CAUSES COVID-19 AGAIN.

I HAVE A PREEXISTING CONDITION. THE VACCINE WAS STUDIED IN PEOPLE WITH MANY DIFFERENT PREEXISTING AND CHRONIC CONDITIONS AND HAS BEEN PROVEN TO BE SAFE. TALK WITH YOUR DOCTOR.

MORE INFORMATION

I'M CONCERNED ABOUT LONG-TERM SIDE EFFECTS. THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF COVID-19 VACCINES — MRNA AND VIRAL VECTOR VACCINES — AND MEDICAL EXPERTS HAVE BEEN STUDYING AND WORKING ON BOTH TYPES FOR DECADES. THE COVID-19 VACCINES WENT THROUGH ALL REQUIRED STAGES OF APPROVAL, AND CLINICIANS CONTINUE TO TRACK ANY POTENTIAL SIDE EFFECTS.

I FEEL LIKE THE VACCINE WAS RUSHED TO MARKET. THE COVID-19 VACCINES WERE CREATED IN RECORD TIME — BUT THIS DOESN'T MEAN THE PROCESS WAS RUSHED. THERE ARE SEVERAL REASONS WHY COMPANIES WERE ABLE TO PRODUCE THE VACCINES FASTER THAN NORMAL, INCLUDING A HEAD START FROM PREVIOUS RESEARCH ON OTHER CORONAVIRUSES, DECADES OF VACCINE RESEARCH, COLLABORATION WITHIN THE SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY AND EXPEDITED REVIEW.

MORE INFORMATION

I'M NOT SURE I WANT TO VACCINATE MY 5-YEAR OLD. COVID-19 VACCINATION CAN HELP PROTECT YOUR CHILD FROM GETTING COVID-19. ALTHOUGH FEWER CHILDREN HAVE BEEN SICK AS COMPARED TO ADULTS, THEY CAN BE INFECTED, CAN GET SICK AND CAN SPREAD THE VIRUS THAT CAUSES COVID-19 TO OTHERS.
