Creditable Information is Key to Making COVID-19 Decision

Do I get vaccinated with one of the available COVID-19 vaccines or not? According to the Mayo Clinic, Getting a COVID-19 vaccine can help your body’s immune system create antibodies that can protect you from getting the virus. Or if you do contract COVID-19 a vaccine can help keep you from getting seriously sick or suffering from serious complications related to the virus. Getting a vaccine could also help protect folks around you from getting the virus, especially people who are at greater risk of getting COVID-19. Getting vaccinated also might help protect people around you from COVID-19, particularly people at increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19. See this link for more details.
