In anticipation of the arrival of the COVID-19 vaccine after the beginning of the year, Citizens Medical Center is prepared to administer vaccinations as long as supplies are available.
The COVID-19 vaccines have been approved for safe, effective use, and medical experts agree that you should get vaccinated as soon as it’s available to you.
COVID-19 VACCINE FACTS:
PROTOCOL FOR RECEIVING THE VACCINATION AT CITIZENS MEDICAL CENTER:
Vaccines help your body build up the ability to fight off a virus and create antibodies. A vaccine may not prevent you from getting the COVID-19 virus, but may keep you from becoming seriously ill, or it may keep you from developing complications, and thereby can be a lifesaver. You may experience some common mild side effects within the rest few days of receiving the vaccination. The vaccine cannot give you COVID-19 since the vaccines developed in the USA don’t use the live virus that causes COVID-19. Meanwhile, continue to avoid close contact, wear a mask properly outside of your home, wash your hands frequently, stay home if you’re sick, and follow state and local recommendations until the spread has stopped!
