Rumor:

“Safe and effective” is just another way to stall the vaccine.

Reality:

Vaccine safety isn’t politics.

Vaccines are tested to prove they are safe and effective. Safe means it won’t make you sick. Effective means that it really protects you from the disease. Tests often run into issues.

This is why tests are so important and can’t be rushed.
