Get the facts about COVID-19 vaccines

The vaccines protect you.

Vaccination is one of the most effective ways to protect your health. COVID-19 vaccines provide instructions to your body's immune system to recognize and fight off the virus that causes COVID-19. The vaccines work with your body's natural defenses to develop protection against COVID-19.

The vaccines can't give you COVID-19

Get the facts about COVID-19 vaccines

The vaccines can't change your DNA

Get the facts about COVID-19 vaccines

The vaccines can't change your DNA.

mRNA vaccines provide instructions to your cells for how to make a coronavirus protein. This protein will trigger an immune response that will help to protect you against COVID-19. After the protein is made, our cells break down the mRNA and get rid of it. The mRNA vaccines never interact with your DNA.
