On the Horizon
I thought about titling this blog, “A light at the end of the tunnel.” But that may be a little optimistic; however, I do believe this is a welcomed breakthrough.
What am I talking about? The COVID-19 vaccine.
You may be leery of this new vaccine. Understandable. So I wanted to give you websites that will provide you with reputable and factual information. Always be careful where you go on the web to get medical information.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is my go-to for vaccine information. Specifically, this website: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/your-health/index.html.
If you want in-depth information about the COVID vaccine, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) is the best resource.
Other resources include-
Johns Hopkins Medicine: https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/conditions-and-diseases/coronavirus/covid-19-vaccine-what-you-need-to-know
Mayo Clinic: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/coronavirus/in-depth/coronavirus-vaccine/art-20484859
These sites will answer common questions such as –
How do vaccines work?
Are the COVID vaccines safe?
What companies are making the vaccine?
Are there side effects to the vaccine?
Will I need more than one injection?
How well will the COVID vaccine protect me from the virus?
Take time to educate yourself.
