IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT COVID-19 VACCINES!

The patients that I interview here at LCDC have mixed feelings about receiving the available coronavirus vaccine. Their opinions span the spectrum, from exuberantly positive to fearfully negative. I was wondering if the lack of continuity in communicating the facts about vaccination, coupled with the rise of anti-vaccine sentiment from years past has combined to create such a broad number of differing opinions.

There is no question vaccines help prevent pandemics; the history books have already chronicled the successes. But if questions still exist about the utility and success of a vaccine for COVID-19, maybe a bit more information from a trusted source like the University of Washington is just what we need right now.

I look forward to receiving my dose so I can protect my family, my team, and my patients.

To your health!
