What You Need to Know About the Pfizer and Moderna Vaccines
-----------------------------------------------------
As we await the details in Fairfax County about the COVID-19 vaccine we will be receiving and how it will be distributed, you may have questions about the two vaccines that have been approved and recommended for use.

COVID-19 vaccines made by two companies, Pfizer and Moderna, have been carefully reviewed and authorized for use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and are recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). These vaccines at first will be distributed to Fairfax County in limited quantities with supply increasing over time. The most important thing to know is that both vaccines are effective and safe to receive.

👉 Are hospitals in your community or destination overwhelmed?
👉 Does your home or destination have restrictions for travelers?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, consider making other plans. See the full list of questions: https://bit.ly/3mADBrk

How COVID-19 Vaccines are Developed to be Safe and Effective
-----------------------------------------------------------
COVID-19 vaccines follow the same careful scientific development and approval process any vaccine would require in the U.S. We take a look at how the process measures safety at each step:

Step 1: The FDA Approves a Scientific Idea From Researchers
Step 2: Clinical Trials Occur in Three Phases
Step 3: The FDA Approves the Vaccine and the CDC Recommends Who Should Receive It
Step 4: State and Local Health Departments Implement Vaccination Programs
