Health care workers answer questions about the COVID-19 vaccines.
Ana G. Cepin, MD talks about the effectiveness of the COVID vaccines against the new variants.
The variants are very worrisome because they are potentially more infectious, potentially more severe. We’re still gathering that information and that data. But yes, the vaccine is one of the biggest tools that we have to fight against the variants. And so, yes. And so I think that as we are, as we come more concerned about the variants, that’s certainly more of a reason why people have to get vaccinated to help prevent the spread of variants and also new variants from developing. So, for those reasons getting vaccinated is so important.
