What are the risks to consider?

Clinical trials are ongoing research, which means that we are not sure of the outcomes and that they may come with risks:

  • Clinical trials are experimental, so there is always a possibility that the vaccine may not work.
  • There is a possibility that the new vaccine may cause some side effects and in extreme cases, adverse effects.
  • You may NOT be part of the treatment group that gets the new treatment. Instead, you may be part of the control group, which gets the standard treatment or a no-treatment placebo that is inert and safe.
