COVID-19 vaccines are safe. Data from clinical trials showed the COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. The benefits of getting vaccinated far outweigh the risks of getting COVID-19. No steps are being skipped during the clinical trial and data review process for COVID-19 vaccines. Safety is a top priority. No matter how quickly COVID-19 vaccines are developed, they are being held to the same standards as other vaccines to make sure they are safe. Clinical trials of COVID-19 vaccines must first show they are safe and effective before any vaccine can be authorized or approved for use in the United States.
The known and potential benefits of a COVID-19 vaccine must outweigh the known and potential risks of the vaccine for use under what is known as an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).
