COVID-19 Vaccine Facts

Tested, safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines will help us get back in control of our lives
and back to the people and places we love.

Scientists had a head start. The vaccines were built upon decades of work to develop vaccines for similar viruses.

Tested, safe and effective. More than 70,000 people volunteered in clinical trials for two vaccines (Pfizer and Moderna) to see if they are safe and work to prevent COVID illness. Volunteers included Black/African American, Hispanic/LatinX, Asians and others. To date, the vaccines are 95% effective in preventing COVID-19 with no serious safety concerns noted in the clinical trials. 

You cannot get COVID-19 from the vaccine. You may have temporary reactions like a sore arm, headache, or feeling tired and achy for a day or two after receiving the vaccine.

 • Take your shot at no cost. The COVID-19 vaccine will be available for free, whether or not you have insurance.

COVID-19 Vaccine Plan

A tested, safe and effective vaccine will be available to all who want it, but supplies will be limited at first. To save lives and slow the spread of COVID-19, independent state and federal public health advisory committees recommend first protecting health care workers, people at the highest risk of being hospitalized or dying, and those at high risk of exposure COVID-19.

Gaston County is currently working through Groups 1 and 2. There are not enough vaccines for everyone in these phases to be vaccinated simultaneously, but everyone who wants to be vaccinated will have the chance to do so.
