Latest COVID-19 Virus Information and Resources:
SEIU members are on the front lines of the coronavirus, caring for the sick, seniors and people with disabilities. We keep our communities clean, safe and healthy. COVID-19 is preventable and treatable, but only if we ensure working people are informed and protected. There are many ways we can reduce the spread of COVID-19. The most important among them are getting vaccinated, wearing masks and practicing social distancing. Basic wellness practices like wearing a mask in public and staying home if we’re sick can also help reduce the spread.
Frequently Asked Questions About COVID-19 Vaccines
SAFETY AND EFFECTIVENESS
What’s in the vaccine and how does it work?
Three vaccines are currently available. Two vaccines, one by Pfizer and one by Moderna, use messenger RNA (mRNA) technology. This technology does not use any live virus particles. You will not be exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19.
Instead, the vaccines contain instructions for your cells. The messenger RNA — a piece of genetic code — tells your cells to make the COVID-19 spike protein themselves. Once your cells make the spike protein, your immune system will create the antibodies that fight COVID-19 and protect you from getting sick from this virus, providing a significant level of immunity.
