Covid-19 is a very serious disease that has so far caused about 4.5 million deaths worldwide. About 15,000 people have died from the disease in Sweden. Covid-19 can also affect young people severely, and lead to medical problems long after the disease has passed.
The vaccines that are approved in Sweden provide good protection against the disease. Getting sick with covid-19 means a far greater risk to your health than taking a vaccine. There are many rumors about the vaccines against Covid-19. For example, that they would affect the possibility of having children, or that they contain dangerous substances that are kept secret. These and many other similar claims are unfounded.
