Safe and effective  Vaccines are approved for use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA authorization means that trials have proven the vaccine an effective defense against COVID-19. The FDA and the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) will continue to monitor safety and effectiveness data. Safety is a top priority. No steps were skipped during the clinical trials and data review process for COVID-19 vaccines. The COVID vaccines are being held to the same standards as other vaccines to make sure they are safe. 

No cost to the patient  As a part of the U.S. government’s Operation Warp Speed, the vaccine doses purchased with U.S. taxpayer dollars will be no cost to the person receiving the vaccine. However, providers may charge an administrative fee or for an office visit. Who gets it first The Louisiana Department of Health is following prioritization guidance from ACIP. Per this guidance, the first round of vaccines is being given to frontline healthcare personnel in hospitals, pre-hospital medical responders (firefighters/EMS) and residents and staff of nursing home/long-term-care facilities.
