Vaccines reduce the risk of COVID-19, including the risk of severe illness and death among people who are fully vaccinated.
COVID-19 and Vaccinations
Vaccines help people develop immunity to a virus or other germ. A vaccine introduces a less harmful part of that germ into a person’s body. The body’s immune system develops antibodies that fight that particular germ and keep the person from getting sick. Later, if the person encounters that germ again, their immune system can recognize it and remember how to fight it off.
