Should you get a COVID-19 vaccine

Getting a COVID-19 vaccine is a personal decision.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), opens new window2 said that the COVID-19 vaccine will:

  • Help keep you from getting COVID-19
  • Be a safer way to help build protection
  • Be an important tool to help stop the pandemic

Humana fully supports the vaccine. We:

  • Encourage all eligible people, as medically appropriate, to get the vaccine when available
  • Suggest continuing to take protective and preventive measures to help bring this pandemic to a swifter end

Keep in mind that vaccinating everyone in the United States – let alone the world – who want the vaccine:

  • Will take time
  • May take the majority of 2021 (or longer)
