Elisa Morgan as she discusses how vaccines work to protect us from
illness and answers frequently asked questions about the highly anticipated new COVID-19 vaccines.

exposure to a weakened or “killed” form of the virus.
- Leave prepared with the information you need to approach your upcoming COVID-19 vaccination with confidence and what you
can expect after your COVID-19 vaccination.
