The COVID-19 vaccines are made to save lives, and the moments we miss most. They were made to save hugs with grandchildren, afternoons with friends, time with family, and services at churches, temples and mosques. The COVID-19 vaccines are extremely effective in preventing death, serious illness, and hospitalization from COVID-19, which has disproportionately impacted communities of color.
Over 170 million people in the US have received at least one dose of the vaccine, but there are many who have questions about how the vaccines were made, what mild side effects they might have, how to get vaccinated, and more.
We’re here to help make sure everyone has the information and resources needed to get vaccinated to keep our friends and families safe and eventually, end this pandemic.
