Myths and Facts about the COVID-19 Vaccine from the Mayo Clinic 


There is no cost for the vaccine

The COVID-19 vaccine will be offered at no cost to you. If someone is asking you to pay with a credit card, bank information or cash, it's a scam. The vaccine will be available from many places, like health care providers; vaccine clinics operated by public health departments, community health centers; and at pharmacies.

Pfizer and Moderna 2-dose Vaccine

Both the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines will be a series of two shots. It will require you to get one shot, and then a second shot 3–4 weeks later. It is very important to get both shots to be fully protected.

The vaccine is safe

The first COVID-19 vaccines have been developed by two companies in the United States: Pfizer and Moderna. They have been tested and found to prevent COVID-19 in more than 90 percent of people given the vaccine — a very high rate of effectiveness. 

The COVID-19 vaccines that are approved all met strict trial and safety standards. For example, the number of people in COVID-19 vaccine trials is the same as trials for other vaccines in recent years, and they include people from diverse backgrounds. 

Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines received emergency use authorization (EUA).  All vaccines that receive EUA have been strictly tested and continue to receive ongoing safety monitoring.

The COVID-19 vaccine will be continually studied for side effects and other reporting. If you receive the vaccine, you can help researchers by downloading the  v-safe app to report any side effects. For more information on how the vaccines work, go to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Understanding mRNA COVID-19 Vaccines page.
