Are the COVID-19 vaccines safe?

Yes. The COVID-19 vaccines that are being given in Oregon are safe. The vaccines have been tested with thousands of people around the world. Black, Indigenous, Latino/a, Asian American, Pacific Islander and people of color have chosen to be part of these research studies to make sure the vaccines are safe for their communities. These tests have shown that all of the vaccines are safe, and they work to protect people from getting sick with COVID-19.
