Latest Update from Our Experts, April 29, 2022
The ongoing vaccine campaign against Covid-19 has been an amazing success story. The vaccines were initially shown to be highly effective in the first studies, and later studies looking at their effectiveness with widespread use in the general population has further confirmed that these vaccines are highly effective. In addition, the vaccines have been shown to be extremely safe with most side effects being mild or moderate and lasting days at most. Like any medical therapy, there have been reports of more severe reactions, but they have fortunately been rare. Finally, the vaccine has been distributed at a faster pace than many hoped. At this point, over 200 million people have been fully vaccinated in the USA alone (over 500 million doses administered) with all available evidence showing the vaccines are safe and effective.
