The arrival of the first COVID-19 vaccines is a major step in ending the coronavirus pandemic. Effective vaccines will reduce your chances of becoming sick in the first place and also make symptoms milder if you get the virus after receiving the vaccine. The more people we can get vaccinated, the more lives we can save, and we can get back to doing what we love - spending time with family and friends, going to Sunday service, celebrating birthdays, graduations and simply enjoying life.

This webpage has been developed as part of an education initiative by St. Joseph's/Candler and local faith leaders in our community to explain vaccine options and to address the most common questions, concerns and  myths about the COVID-19 vaccine, particularly from the African-American and Latino communities. In addition, with the Department of Public Health, we will be working together in coming months to ensure that underserved neighborhoods have access to the vaccine in a trusted, convenient location.

We hope that you will choose to get vaccinated! But if you are unsure, please make sure you have ALL of the information you need to make the best decision for you.

We hope you will find it helpful. Spread the facts, not the virus!
