Are the COVID‐19 vaccines that are current available safe? 

The current COVID‐19 vaccines available from Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson and Johnson have undergone scientifically rigorous and proven clinical trials involving diverse populations consisting of tens of thousands of volunteers. In all the trials, no serious side effects have been identified in the authorized vaccines. The Federal Drug Administration has granted emergency authorization for the 3 authorized vaccines and here in New York, a COVID‐19 Clinical  Advisory Task Force has conducted an independent safety review of each.
