Is the vaccine safe?
The first available COVID-19 vaccines underwent extensive phase 3 clinical trials with many people participating (over 30,000 people per vaccine) across diverse ages, races, and ethnicities. The vaccines have been tested at the highest-level for efficacy and safety.
While we don’t know how long protection lasts for those who get infected or those who are vaccinated, the benefits of vaccine-acquired immunity outweigh the risk of natural infection, which has the potential to cause serious illness or death.
The vaccine alone will not be the “perfect fix”. You will still need to practice other precautions, like wearing a mask, social distancing, and hand washing --- until public health officials say otherwise.
At Oak Street Health, keeping our patients healthy is our top priority, and we recommend that our patients get the COVID-19 vaccine, and continue social distancing, as well as wearing a mask whenever possible.
