The Coronavirus Vaccine


Jaidynn Gonzales, Staff writer

January 2020 was when the very first case of the coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, was reported in North America. Since then the United States has had thousands and thousands of cases every day.

In November 2020, the United States scientists developed the first COVID-19 vaccine. Today in April 2021, scientists have developed 3 vaccines, and they are called the Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson/Janssen.

There are different side effects that occur to different people. Some people feel terrible after getting the shot, and other people don’t get the side effects at all. Other people still get the virus right after they get the shot. Some people that I have talked to regret getting the shot because it made them feel horrible and tired, but other people love the shot.

Today in Texas, the vaccines are now available to everyone 16 and older. None of the COVID-19 vaccines protect you 100% from getting the coronavirus, so there is still a chance to get the virus but it’s not as high. If you get the vaccine and still contract the coronavirus, afterwards you will still get sick but not seriously sick. According to, the COVID-19 cases have not gone done just yet.
