If the COVID-19 vaccine works for others, why do people care if I get one or not?
We know vaccines are often a personal choice. We also know the COVID-19 vaccines are working to prevent serious illness. If you’re on the fence about whether or not to get the COVID-19 vaccine, here are five reasons to consider:
Reason #1 – Less chance for the virus to mutate: The COVID-19 vaccine makes it harder for the virus to mutate and for other variants to spread. This shortens the length of the Pandemic.
Reason #2 – Alleviates burden on the healthcare system: By reducing the probability of infection and transmission, the COVID-19 vaccine alleviates the burden on the healthcare system and decreases the risks associated with other activities and conditions. You are reducing your chances of hospitalization, death, and long-haul COVID-19, which can severely impact your health and place a burden on the healthcare system and those around you.
Reason #3 – Protect those around you (like vulnerable seniors): The COVID-19 vaccine protects those around you with compromised immune systems or underlying conditions. With the vaccine, you can safely go about your day without impacting vulnerable populations.
Reason #4 – Stop further outbreaks in your community: The COVID-19 vaccine prevents the spread of contagious outbreaks, leading to fewer people at risk of getting infected.
Reason #5 – Increase the quality of life by preventing future lockdowns and restrictions: The COVID-19 allows businesses and communities to reopen, families to reunite, and regain a sense of normalcy.
