Why should I get vaccinated?

The vaccination is expected to reduce the vulnerability to the virus, preventing an overheating of the health system. It is an act of solidarity:  when you get vaccinated, you can also help to protect everybody around you.

Here are 5 reasons why you should get vaccinated

  • To return to a lifestyle as before the pandemic as soon as possible
  • To prevent the vast majority of people from catching the disease
  • To help keep as many people healthy as possible
  • To help reduce the social and psychosocial burden of disease on people
  • To help reduce the burden on the health system and free their resources
