These vaccines were produced so quickly. How do we know they are safe?

It is the U.S. Vaccine Safety System’s job to make sure that all vaccines are as safe as possible. Scientists and medical experts have been researching this type of virus for years, which allowed for faster creation and distribution of the vaccine. The new COVID-19 vaccines have been evaluated in tens of thousands of individuals, who volunteered to be vaccinated and to participate in clinical trials. The information from these clinical trials allowed the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to determine the safety.
