What Seniors Should Know About COVID-19 Vaccines

Due to coronavirus, the world has changed drastically. But, with the development of COVID vaccines, things are starting to change for everyone— from seniors to family caregivers who need respite care.

Getting vaccinated is definitely one of the best ways to protect others and yourself against the virus. It’s especially important for seniors receiving elderly care in Grand Terrace, California.

Here are some of the most important things to know about COVID-19 vaccines for older adults:

  • They Are Safe

    No matter what brand of vaccine you get, rest assured that they are safe. Drug companies need to conduct several clinical trials before the FDA will give their seal of approval.

  • Side Effects Are Normal

    Do not get worried if you experience side effects after the vaccine. These are signs that the jab is working. The side effects should disappear after a few days.

    Once you get the vaccine, you will need to wait for 15 to 30 minutes before you can leave so that healthcare professionals can monitor allergic reactions, if there are any. These are rare, though.

  • Following Safety Protocols Is Still Important

    The vaccines can help reduce your risk of contracting the virus, but since most people haven’t received it yet, it would be best to continue washing hands regularly, wearing a mask, staying 6 feet apart from people who do not live in your adult facility in California.
