Vax Confidence: Trust Crisp Regional with Your COVID-19 Vaccination

Crisp Living.

As COVID continues to change with new variants, and the world continues to find ways to fight the virus, one thing has stayed the same: vaccination is the best tool we have to keep people healthy. Even with variants like Delta and Omicron, COVID vaccines do an excellent job at preventing serious illness and keeping people out of hospitals.

It is understandable why some people may be skeptical about receiving the COVID vaccine. However, after distributing the vaccine over the past year, Crisp Regional can answer any questions or concerns you may have about the vaccine so that you feel confident about taking this important step for your health.

Crisp Regional’s doctors have been administering the COVID vaccine for over a year now. Whether you have decided to receive your first dose, or it is time for your booster shot, Crisp Regional is here to make sure your vaccine experience is one you feel comfortable with.

Receiving the COVID vaccine is the best way to ensure that you are protected from the virus. A few mild side effects are possible, such as:
  • Body aches
  • Chills
  • Soreness at the location of the shot
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
These symptoms shouldn’t last more than a day or so, and they are actually a sign that the vaccine is working – your immune system is responding!

Several falsities have been circulating, including concerns that the vaccine may affect fertility or cause other long-term health issues. However, these concerns are not based on evidence, and studies show that you are actually more likely to experience long-term health problems from COVID than you are from the vaccine. Additionally, the vaccine has been determined to be safe for children 5 and above.

Of course, if you have any concerns about the vaccine, your doctor would be happy to talk through whatever questions you may have so that you can make an educated decision to receive the vaccine and protect your health.
