Other Vaccination Opportunities

Several retail pharmacies throughout Benton, Lincoln and Linn counties are offering COVID-19 vaccinations as well.

Vaccine Safety

How do we know the coronavirus vaccines are safe? Four words:  Really large clinical trials.

The clinical trials included up to 40,000 people, which is more than double the size of most vaccine clinical trials. That allowed the pharmaceutical companies to go through the required testing steps in a very short time.

The vaccines have been shown to be safe and very effective at preventing COVID-19 infection, and nearly 100% effective in preventing hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19.

 

Note: The Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines have not been approved or licensed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), but have been authorized for emergency use by the FDA, under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to prevent Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) for use in individuals 16 and older for Pfizer, and 18 years of age and older for Moderna and Johnson & Johnson. The emergency use of these products is only authorized for the duration of the COVID-19 emergency declaration that circumstances exist justifying the authorization of emergency use of the medical product under Section 564(b)(1) of the Food Drug & Cosmetic Act unless the declaration is terminated or authorization revoked sooner.
