FAQs: COVID vaccine safety, effectiveness & more

Vaccination is a critical next step in moving forward through this pandemic. With the recent approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the first COVID-19 vaccine developed by Pfizer/BioNTech, we understand that community members have questions about the vaccine.  Our partners in public health at Snohomish Health District have assembled a list of Frequently Asked Questions that help provide clarity and context.

Questions include:

  • How effective is the COVID-19 vaccine?
  • Is the vaccine safe?
  • How many doses do I need?
  • Who will get the vaccine first?

Learn this and more by visiting Snohomish Health District’s COVID Vaccine FAQ page.
