Vaccine Safety

Since vaccines are administered to otherwise healthy people, they are among the most rigorously tested and safest medical products on the market. In fact, it can take 15 to 20 years – or more – and approximately $1 billion dollars to thoroughly test a new vaccine before it is licensed and made available to the public. The COVID-19 vaccines did not take nearly as long to create, but that does not mean that the vaccines are not safe. Learn more on our COVID-19 FAQ page.

On this page, we address some of the most common questions people have about vaccine safety.
