Where We Are Now
More than 70,000 people volunteered in clinical trials for two vaccines (Pfizer and Moderna, for which Tryon Medical participated in the study) to see if they are safe and work to prevent COVID illness. Volunteers included Black/African American, Hispanic/LatinX, Asians and others. All vaccines are very effective in preventing COVID-19 with no serious safety concerns noted in the clinical trials. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) makes sure the vaccines are safe and can prevent people from getting COVID-19. Like all drugs, vaccine safety continues to be monitored after they are in use.
You cannot get COVID-19 from the vaccine. You may have temporary reactions like a sore arm, headache or feeling tired and achy for a day or two after receiving the vaccine.
Take your shot at no cost. The COVID-19 vaccine will be available for free, whether or not you have insurance.
