Vaccine Considerations Project


The Vaccine Considerations Project has been created to highlight health and safety throughout the COVID-19 vaccine evaluation process.


We’re working to make sure that all health and safety concerns are given due consideration.

We’re creating a repository of information for everyone contemplating getting a vaccine, and for those advising them, that comprehensively addresses health concerns and considerations.

Public Trust is Necessary

In order to eliminate COVID-19, a large percentage of people need to develop immunity.

Significant vaccine hesitancy has been well documented, and reinforced by recent news.

Widespread concerns must be adequately addressed in order to ensure sufficient buy-in by:

  • public health experts
  • medical professionals
  • the public

JAMA - COVID-19 Vaccine Approval and the FDA

Joshua Sharfstein, MD, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and JAMA Associate Editor Preeti Malani, MD, University of Michigan, discuss implications for public health and policy responses to ensure vaccine safety.

Additional Considerations

There may be unforeseen adverse reactions for the COVID vaccines that may emerge in people who have:

  • hyperinflammatory conditions
  • cancers
  • people with poor health or nutrition
  • past exposure/immunity to the COVID virus

The Stakes are High

With a high percentage of COVID-19 immunity amongst the population, we may return to a semblance of normalcy within a year or two.

If public trust is broken by an approved vaccine that develops health or safety concerns after being administered to millions of people, many people likely wouldn’t give a second chance to another vaccine.

Without widespread immunity, we could all be forced to live in a world upended by the community spread of COVID-19 for years to come.

Collective Action Required

We’re urging all concerned stakeholders to collectively contribute to, and share, a comprehensive repository of information that addresses health and safety concerns for the COVID vaccines.

It’s imperative that we urgently work together to ensure that any approved vaccine is safe.

All Hands on Deck

We’re recruiting all that align with this critical project.

Contribute your time and skills to help prevent catastrophic health conditions from arising.
