A lot of people are nervous about getting the Covid vaccine, but it is definitely in your best interest to get it, and here are some reasons why.

A big thing surrounding the covid vaccines is that people are scared they aren’t safe and that they don’t trust them, but contrary to popular belief, they ARE safe. “COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. COVID-19 vaccines were evaluated in tens of thousands of participants in clinical trials. The vaccines met FDA’s rigorous scientific standards for safety, effectiveness, and manufacturing quality needed to support emergency use authorization” (CDC)

Another thing is the side affects. No, none of the covid vaccines can change your DNA or alter anything in your body. With that being said, there are still common side effects to the vaccine, like pain at the injection site, fever, headache, tiredness, chills and nausea. these affects are not long term though, in fact long term side effects are very unlikely and not something to be worried about. (CDC)

Those two things are some of the biggest concerns people have about the vaccine, but if you specifically have any concerns about the vaccine and how you may react, you can go to your nearest testing site, doctor or to the CDC website for more information.
