Vaccines are safe, effective and the best way to protect you and those around you from serious illnesses like COVID-19.
Vaccines work with your immune system so your body will be ready to fight the virus if you are exposed. This can reduce your risk of developing COVID-19 and make your symptoms milder if you do get it.
