An educational video series to help you better understand the vaccines and how they help stop the spread of COVID-19.
For two years, we have all made big and small changes in our daily lives to stay healthy and safe. From daily self-screening of symptoms, to limiting our contact with others, to wearing masks and physically distancing, to increased hand washing.
Now, we can finally get control of COVID-19. Vaccines help us to stop the spread. With every vaccination, our families and communities are one step closer toward a healthier future.
Understanding how vaccines work is an essential step in understanding why vaccination is so important. Below is a video series to help you understand the science behind vaccinations, with an even deeper dive into COVID-19 vaccines. You’ll learn the facts about how the human body fights infectious diseases, details on COVID-19 vaccine efficacy and safety, and what you can expect when you get vaccinated.
Feel free to watch the full series in one sitting, or jump to the topic that most interests you.
COVID-19 vaccines have been developed thanks to unprecedented collaboration and funding. But vaccines don't work if we don't vaccinate. Right now, it's important that we understand what they do—and what they don't do—so we can make an informed decision to get vaccinated.
