February 10, 2022

As the nation progresses from pandemic to endemic, it’s important for everyone to get vaccinated so that no one gets left behind. Here, we share some facts on the COVID-19 vaccines and why you need to get vaccinated:


Stay Informed – Facts of the COVID-19 Vaccines

COVID-19 vaccines are safe

  • There are strict protections in place to help ensure the safety of all COVID-19 vaccines, for both adults and adolescents over 12 years old.
  • This includes going through rigorous clinical testing to meet internationally agreed benchmarks for safety and efficacy.

COVID-19 may have side effects

  • Getting vaccinated means that the vaccine works with your immune system to fight the virus when your body is exposed to it.
  • It is normal to have some side effects as your body builds protection, but they should go away in a few days. Some people may not have any side effects at all after being vaccinated.

COVID-19 vaccines do not give you the COVID-19 virus

  • Depending on the vaccine, it will take a few weeks for your body to build immunity after getting a COVID-19 vaccination.
  • Getting vaccinated will help prevent you from getting seriously ill from COVID-19
  • It is said that adults aged 65 years and older, are 94% less likely to be hospitalised with the COVID-19 virus as compared to those who aren’t vaccinated.
