According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), studies show that COVID-19 vaccines are effective at keeping you from getting COVID-19. Experts also think that getting a COVID-19 vaccine may help keep you from getting seriously ill even if you do get COVID-19.
The Food & Drug Administration has approved two COVID-19 vaccines. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has determined four phases of vaccine rollout (see chart below), taking into consideration factors that increase COVID-19 risk or risk of complications, including occupation, age, and health.
Southeast Healthcare is distributing the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine as available and according to state and federal guidelines.
