Benefits of Getting the Vaccine – Stronger Together

A vaccine can limit the spread of the disease by helping to protect you and those around you.  Like all vaccines, the COVID-19 vaccine was designed to protect you from contracting the virus or to limit the severity of the disease should you contract it. We know from other diseases and their vaccines that we can slow or stop the spread of disease when roughly 60 to 80 percent of a population gets vaccinated, which is why it’s important to vaccinate as many people as quickly as possible.
