The authorized vaccines are a safe and effective way to add protection from serious illness, hospitalization, and death from COVID.
It’s true that getting COVID provides some immunity. But, this “natural immunity” varies from person to person and it’s hard to tell how well it protects and for how long. Researchers agree that adding on another layer of protection (vaccination) provides the best protection from serious illness possible.
If you have any questions about what’s right for you and your keiki, please speak with your pediatrician.
