Vaccines | Disinformation
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on ethnic minority communities. That’s why it’s so important that we get the vaccine when we’re offered it. Hundreds of scientists, thousands of volunteers and billions of pounds of funding have meant that Covid-19 vaccines have been developed quickly and safely. The Covid-19 vaccines work just like any other vaccine you may have had. They do not contain Covid-19, or anything that has come from animals. The Covid-19 vaccines have been tested on a wide range of people to make sure they’re safe and effective for everyone. The Covid-19 vaccines have gone through the same thorough testing as all new medicines, and have been approved as safe to use. Like all medicines, some people might have mild side effects after the Covid-19 vaccine, but for most people these don’t last very long.
