Health officials are concerned that with the arrival of COVID-19 vaccines, there’s also a significant amount of misinformation out there about the vaccines and the virus.

“I still believe that people think and perhaps worry that they could get COVID-19 from vaccination and that simply is not possible.”

HealthPartners Dr. Mark Sannes says the vaccine was formulated in such a way that we are not using a live vaccine or a weakened COVID-19 vaccine to vaccinate people. He’s encouraging as many people as possible to get the vaccine when it becomes available to the public.
