COVID-19 vaccine is a vaccine being studied to see if it protects against coronavirus disease, also known as COVID-19. It has not been approved by the FDA or Health Canada for general use. However, the FDA and Health Canada are now allowing the COVID-19 vaccine to be used in human studies and for emergency or interim use in certain people. More information should be provided by your health care professional from either the Informed Consent form for a study, the FDA Fact Sheet for Recipients and Caregivers for emergency use, or the Health Canada Patient Medication Information for interim use.There is still limited information about how well the COVID-19 vaccine protects against coronavirus disease and how safe it is. Studies show that the COVID-19 vaccine may help protect most people who receive it against COVID-19. The vaccine may help you to fight the virus if you are exposed to it later. The vaccine may prevent the illness, or reduce the seriousness of it. Vaccines may not fully protect everyone who receives them. Continue to wear a mask, practice social distancing, and follow other safety guidelines to protect yourself and those around you until otherwise directed by your health care professional and public health officials. The information in this document reflects early and recent data, which is still being studied and added to.
