Why Should I Get Vaccinated?

Chris Barry discusses why JMA created this video series to help answer questions about the COVID-19 vaccines.

Is COVID-19 Really That Serious?

Because some people can become seriously ill or die from COVID-19, JMA recommends the vaccine for those who are eligible.

How Do the COVID-19 Vaccines Work?

MRNA or DNA in the vaccines cause the body to make proteins to trigger the production of antibodies that protect you if you are exposed to COVID-19.

What is in the Vaccines & What are the Side Effects of the Vaccine?

MRNA and DNA vaccines both also contain sugars, salts, and fats. Common side effects include fatigue, muscle aches, low fever, & headache.

Should I Still Get the COVID-19 Vaccine if I'm Pregnant, Plan to be Pregnant, or Breastfeeding?

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommend the COVID-19 vaccines for pregnant women and breastfeeding moms.

Are There Any Long Term Effects From the COVID-19 Vaccine?

MRNA and DNA vaccines have been studied for decades, and there are no biologic components to cause long term side effects; however, the COVID-19 virus itself can cause long term effects.

Which Vaccine Should I Get?

Three vaccines are approved in the U.S., and all are very effective at preventing serious illness, hospitalization, and death.

What are the Benefits of Receiving the COVID-19 Vaccine?

There are benefits for people who are fully vaccinated (two weeks after the final vaccine shot is received).
