WHY THE VACCINE IS IMPORTANT
Packard Health is optimistic that the COVID-19 vaccine approvals represent the beginning of the end of the pandemic. Vaccines work with your immune system, preparing it to fight the virus if exposed. When considering the new vaccines, Packard Health providers were initially cautious. However, after a thorough review of the available data, Packard Health feels confident to recommend that our patients receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Below are some important points that we want to share with you about the COVID-19 vaccine.
The approved Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines have been studied in the usual way in very large studies of over 30,000 people each. Although there are minor side effects, and, as with every medical agent, some patients are allergic, there have been no serious side effects found.
The vaccines have prevented over 90% of symptomatic infections in the studies. They are very effective and vaccination will help protect you and your loved ones from getting sick or hospitalized from COVID-19. Wearing masks and social distancing will continue to be required to help reduce spreading it to others that may have not been vaccinated. Ending the pandemic requires the use of all tools that we have available.
