The Philadelphia Immunization Program has received many questions from residents about the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 Vaccines. It the vaccine safe? Is it effective? What are the side effects?

To help answer these questions, we have created a General COVID-19 Vaccine FAQ sheet in seven different languages. The FAQ sheet compiles the ten most frequently asked questions about the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccine by Philadelphia residents. Please select and download one of the files below and share it among your network.

PDPH has also created more specific FAQ sheets for childcare workers, congregate living facility staff and residents, essential workers, food service workers, long term care facility (LCTF) staff and residents, pregnant people, and public transit workers.
