COVID-19 is a deadly disease that causes severe illness – and in some cases, long term symptoms that we have yet to fully understand. The COVID-19 vaccine has been created to decrease death and severe illness.
Although a high percentage of people recover from COVID-19, some are hospitalized and experience severe illness. It is also somewhat common to have the virus but never experience symptoms, and it’s possible to spread the virus to others even when symptoms are not present. When you make the choice to be vaccinated, you are protecting not only yourself but also those around you from the chance of death and severe illness.
