Health care workers answer questions about the COVID-19 vaccines.
Edith Bracho-Sanchez, MD explains that we’re still learning how long protection against COVID-19 lasts after vaccination.
We’re still learning exactly how long we’re going to be protected against COVID-19 from the vaccines that are currently available. The data that we’ve seen so far says at least six months, but we also have to remember we haven’t been vaccinating people for that long, right? So, it might be six months because we haven’t tested it that much further out from six months. But it is definitely an area that we’re currently looking into. I think the longer they’re out in the market and the longer COVID persists in our community, with both of those things together, we’re going to be able to tell a little bit better how long we’re protected for.
