At the Montshire, we know that science and data are important to making decisions for your family. The following information can help you and your children understand the science, research, and process behind the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines.
Scientists and researchers have created several safe and effective vaccines, which are now being distributed. These vaccines, along with continued mask-wearing, hand-washing, and social distancing, will help you and your family return to normal daily activities.
