COVID-19 can have serious and life-threatening complications, which is why it’s important for everyone who’s eligible to get vaccinated. Studies show that COVID-19 vaccines are effective at keeping you and those in your community from getting COVID-19. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine will also help keep you from getting seriously ill even if you do get COVID-19.
