One Big Fight
vs COVID-19

Vaccination Information Campaign

The US Center for Disease Control (CDC) says a vaccine is “a product that stimulates a person's immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease, protecting the person from that disease.”

COVID-19 vaccines are effective in protecting you from getting sick. Based on what we know about COVID-19 vaccines, people who have been fully vaccinated can start to do some things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic.

Even after vaccination, though, the CDC recommends that precautions should still be taken:

+ Wear a mask

+ Practice social distancing

+ Avoid crowds and poorly ventilated areas

Vaccines are effective in building one’s immune system against serious diseases. Thanks to vaccines, up to 3 million lives per year are protected and saved from over 20 diseases such as diphtheria,rabies, tetanus, influenza, and measles. Vaccines are administered through injections, by mouth, or sprayed through the nose. They stimulate the immune system, protecting a person from a specific disease.

Health care professionals and medical experts have studied the effectiveness and safety of COVID-19 vaccines and highly encourage the public to get vaccinated. Vaccines are safe, simple, and effective. They prevent contagious diseases, and protect you and your family. (Visit the and sites to learn more.)

Things that make a huge difference in our fight against COVID-19:

Getting Vaccinated

Practicing safety health tools at ALL times (wearing a mask, social distancing, hand washing, and avoiding crowds and poor ventilated areas)

Herd immunity keeps a community safe. When enough individuals in a community are vaccinated, the virus's chance of spreading throughout the community lowers.

This is IMPORTANT because not all community members can be vaccinated (possible reasons: they're immunocompromised or are too young).

More people getting vaccinated means less chance for COVID-19 to spread, protecting not just you but those around you as well. (See the site to learn more.)
