Why Should I Get Vaccinated?

Because you care about your health. Because you care about your job. Because you care about your friends and family.

Because vaccination is the strongest defense against catching COVID-19, spreading it to others, and becoming hospitalized or dying of COVID-19.

Nearly every day a new “miracle cure” spreads on social media. They are not a miracle and they are not a cure. The truth is, there already is a highly-effective, safe, and free vaccine to prevent COVID-19.

We all want life to return to normal, including your children and teens. Masks, social distancing and good hygiene alone won’t get us there. Vaccines will.

Now is the time for you and your teens to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Over 180 million Americans have been safely vaccinated. But to slow the spread of COVID-19, many more still need to be vaccinated. The FDA has approved the Pfizer vaccine for ages 5 and up, and it is important to protect our kids now that they are back in school.

It is possible that the vaccine might make you feel sore or crummy for a couple of days – but that is better than two weeks or more of being sick with the virus!

More and more businesses, public agencies, and venues are requiring proof of vaccination. And beginning in 2022, all California students in kindergarten through 12th grade in public, charter and private schools will be required to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Don’t wait.

It's Time.

“The sooner we all get vaccinated, the sooner we’ll all be through this. Millions of people have been safely vaccinated. I’m next.”

It Makes Sense.

“If I get the vaccine and feel crummy for a day or two, I can handle that. If I get COVID-19 and miss two weeks or worse, my family can’t afford that. Today, I’m getting vaccinated.”

“I'm scared of COVID-19 Delta.”

FDA-Approved. Safe & Free.

Millions of Americans have been safely vaccinated. But to slow the spread of COVID-19 many more still need to get the vaccine.
