Why get the vaccine?
- The vaccine is safe and highly effective at protecting people from severe illness or death from COVID-19.
- Science shows that unvaccinated people are most likely to get seriously ill and to spread the disease around their community. Getting your vaccine not only keeps you safe, but your elders, loved ones and community.
- Side effects from the vaccine are almost always mild and usually disappear within 48 hours.
- YKHC has administered tens of thousands of shots. There have been very few allergic reactions (or adverse effects) and no deaths from the vaccine worldwide.
- The Pfizer vaccine is fully authorized by the FDA.
- The vaccine offers reliable long-term protection. Even if you have had COVID-19, you should still get vaccinated to protect you from getting infected again.
- COVID-19 vaccines are being administered under the most intensive vaccine safety monitoring effort in US history.
What to expect?
- Wear a mask to your appointment. The provider will verify some information about you and then administer the shot.
- Wait: After you get your shot, you’ll be asked to wait at the clinic to watch for any highly uncommon adverse reactions.
- At home: You might feel sore at the injection site. Other side effects from the vaccines can be fever and fatigue, which can be treated with ibuprofen or Tylenol. Don’t worry, it is not possible to get COVID-19 from your shot! You should feel back to normal after about 48 hours.
- We’re here for you: If at any point you have questions or concerns, we’re just a call away. Call the COVID-19 hotline at 907-543-6949.
