The first doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine have arrived in Southern California, and the initial groups of health care workers are getting the first of the two-part immunization.

The launch of the vaccination process comes as the number of coronavirus cases is roaring out of control and hospital ICU's are filling to capacity. So it's more important than ever that everyone who can get vaccinated, does so.

We know you have lots of questions about the vaccines. Well, we have answers.
