While many who have yet to receive a COVID-19 vaccine eagerly anticipate an opportunity to receive one, many still have questions. This video from TriHealth addresses the safety and side effects of the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines. Topics covered include:

  • Documentation of symptoms and events during vaccine trials
  • Immediate negative reactions during trials, their severity and zero severe allergic reactions
  • Reports of severe reactions in post-trial administration of vaccines and their outcomes
  • Context to demonstrate extremely low rate of severe immediate reactions
  • Local reactions within seven days after vaccination and their comparison to the placebo group
  • Expected mild to moderate reactions in some people and why your body may naturally experience them
  • Reiteration of why you can’t get COVID-19 from the vaccine
  • The importance of getting your second dose
  • Reactions after the second injection versus the first
