The Truth About COVID-19 Vaccinations

At the University of Maryland Extension we support and provide science-based solutions for everyday problems, including public health information. As COVID-19 vaccinations are rolled out across the country, we are encouraging Marylanders to take action.

With the vaccinations have also come rumors and myths about its effectiveness and how it may affect the public. In light of the misinformation coming through outlets like social media, we have created a COVID-19 vaccination information page to provide factual information.

If you’ve heard from your brother-in-law’s uncle’s second cousin that vaccines are being used to microchip people or that it may alter your DNA, please don’t listen to them. Find information from trusted and reputable sources, talk with your family physician, get your facts before making decisions.

Because the truth is, COVID-19 vaccinations are safe and effective, and they may save your life.
