- Effectiveness: People who are up to date on their vaccines and boosters have a lower
risk of severe illness, hospitalization, and death from COVID-19 than people who are
unvaccinated or who have not received updated booster shots. Vaccination also reduces your chance of suffering
possible long-term effects of COVID-19.
- Safety: COVID-19 vaccines have undergone—and continue to undergo—the most intensive safety monitoring in U.S.
history. Evidence demonstrates that they are safe and effective. Side
effects within 7 days of vaccination are common but mostly mild.
For more vaccine information, consult with your primary care provider, the Washington State Department of
Health, or the CDC.
