COVID-19 Vaccine FAQ

FAQ

Do you offer the covid-19 vaccine?

Yes, we offer Pfizer for children 12 up to 21.

Is this a 1 or 2 dose vaccine?

Two doses, 3 weeks apart. 

Is this vaccine FDA approved?

Yes. 

Are there eggs in this vaccine?

No, the current Covid-19 vaccines don’t contain egg products or egg culture.

Does this vaccine contain a live virus?

No, none of the authorized Covid-19 vaccines in the United States contain the live virus that causes Covid-19. This means that a Covid-19 vaccine cannot make you sick with Covid.

I’m concerned about long term side effects from the vaccine. Is this a risk?

No non-live virus has ever been shown to cause long term side effects. In fact, the vaccine leaves the body within 72 hours. The only thing that remains long term would be the memory cells and antibodies that are primed and ready to fight off COVID.

Millions of people have received the vaccine with no lingering side effects.

What are these memory cells and antibodies?

It’s the defense in everyone’s bodies. Vaccines put up wanted posters and build up an army (T-lymphocytes as well as B-lymphocytes) that will remember how to fight that virus in the future and pounce on the bad guy as soon as he enters the body.

 

How effective is the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine?

Based on evidence from clinical trials in people 16 years and older, the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine was 95% effective at preventing laboratory-confirmed infection with the virus that causes COVID-19.
