The City of Cambridge and the Cambridge Public Health Department recognize that there are many questions regarding the COVID-19 vaccine. 

The available COVID-19 vaccines are approved and recommended by the FDA and the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices following standard testing and approval processes. By prioritizing resources and efforts, the vaccines were developed quickly and never at the expense of safety. More vaccine safety information is available in this flyer and at mass.gov/COVIDVaccineSafety
