Health care workers answer questions about the COVID-19 vaccines.
Damon Francis, MD explains that we need the COVID vaccines because they help people avoid long-term effects from illness and death related to COVID.
We can’t just sit back and watch people be infected and not try to do anything about it. And, it’s not just the deaths from coronavirus. You know, we have some longer-term follow-up studies that are coming out, showing us that six months later people continue to have really serious symptoms. You know, their lungs continue to be affected, their brains continue to be affected, their hearts continue to be affected.
And you know, that’s just a level of devastation that I don’t think we want to, you know, allow ourselves to have to experience. I think a vaccine is just a much preferable way as a society for us to get through this.
