While being concerned about the safety and efficacy of vaccines is valid, clinical trials of all vaccines must first show that they are safe and effective before one can be approved for use. Yes, this means even the COVID-19 vaccine. The known potential benefits must outweigh the known potential risks under what is known as the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).
ONE MORE TIME
You get two doses. Depending on which vaccine you get, a second booster is required after 3-4 weeks. The first shot grants you only about 50-52% immunity.
You might experience some side effects. This is a normal sign that your body is reacting accordingly and building immunity to the virus. You may feel pain/swelling on the arm that you received the shot. You may also experience: chills, fatigue, headache, and nausea.

Vaccine doses purchased with US taxes will be given to the American people at no cost. That being said, vaccination providers may be allowed to charge administrative fees for giving the shot. (This is usually covered by your health insurance, but double check to be sure).
"Will I go into sicko mode?"
None of the authorized and recommended COVID-19 vaccines in the US contain the live virus that causes COVID-19. This means that a COVID-19 vaccine cannot make you sick with COVID-19. There are several different types of vaccines in development. All of them teach our immune systems how to recognize and fight the virus,
NEW PERSON, SAME OLD MISTAKES
"Will it alter my DNA?"
COVID-19 messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines do not change or interact with your DNA. These vaccines teach our cells how to make a specific protein that triggers the immune response. In this case, it is a COVID-19 spike protein. The mRNA never enters the nucleus of a cell, which hosts our DNA. This mean that the mRNA does not interact with our DNA. Instead, these vaccines work with our body's natural defenses to safely develop immunity.
BONUS: "I'm not a healthcare worker nor a high risk individual. When can I get the vaccine?"
The President has announced that he will direct states to make all adults, ages 18 and up, eligible for the vaccine by May 1. We need about 70% of the population to be immunized before we can achieve herd immunity. Until then, please refer to the CDC guidelines for additional information.
