COVID-19 Vaccines and You

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines for everyone aged 6 months and older, including pregnant women and people with compromised immune systems.

The primary series of the vaccine, followed by booster doses, protects against severe COVID-19 illness, hospitalization, and death by triggering your body to make antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19 illness. Vaccine immunity is long lasting and safe.

SARS-CoV-2 infection also triggers your body to make antibodies against re-infection, but that natural immunity is temporary (about 90 days) and comes with the risk of severe illness, hospitalization, and death.

People who are up to date on their COVID-19 vaccines can still contract and spread the virus, so continue to follow all other safety precautions to protect yourself and others and stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community:

  • Wash your hands frequently to kill the SARS-CoV-2 virus
  • Keep your distance from others
  • Wear a mask inside when you are unable to be at least 6 feet away from others
