I've been vaccinated so I don't need to worry about this new Delta variant of COVID-19

The Delta variant is TWO to THREE times more contagious than the original virus and can spread easily.  While unvaccinated people are at the biggest risk for catching Delta, it's still important you continue to wear a mask and practice social distancing.

People with significant allergic reactions shouldn’t get the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine.

Being allergic to one thing does not mean that you’re allergic to another. People who have an allergic reaction to a component of the COVID-19 vaccine should not receive it.

The vaccine was rushed to market and hasn't been adequately tested for safety.

COVID-19 vaccines have been evaluated extensively in large-scale clinical trials. FDA authorizes their use only after reviewing this data.

The COVID-19 vaccine can cause sterilization.

There's no evidence to support sterilization as a side effect of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Virginia Garcia is providing vaccinations for BOTH patients AND THE PUBLIC.

As an approved vaccine distribution site, Virginia Garcia is providing vaccines to their patients, referrals from community partners and to anyone in the community 12 and older at designated walk-in vaccination events and at clinics.

Even after you are vaccinated, it is important to remain careful. 

For those not yet vaccinated, COVID-19 remains a threat so it is important to remember to continue to wear your mask in public, stay at least 6 feet apart from others you do not know and wash your hands frequently.

The CDC has made recommendations on what to do next once you are vaccinated.
