With millions of doses now having been administered, COVID-19 vaccines have been proven to provide safe, effective protection against the disease, including variants of the virus.
- All of the COVID-19 vaccines reduce the risk of severe illness and limit disease transmission in the community.
- The more people in our community who are vaccinated, the better we can protect ourselves and one another.
