Doctors say CDC should warn people the side effects from Covid vaccine shots won’t be ‘a walk in the park’

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health

Public health officials and drugmakers must be transparent about the side effects people may experience after getting their first shot of a coronavirus vaccine, doctors urged during a meeting Monday with CDC advisors as states prepare to distribute doses as early as next month.

Dr. Sandra Fryhofer of the American Medical Association noted that both Pfizer’s and Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccines require two doses at varying intervals. As a practicing physician, she said she worries whether her patients will come back for a second dose because of the potentially unpleasant side effects they may experience after the first shot.

    Transparency is important. That includes the percentage of people who have received the fist vaccination and then have a reaction that makes them condider not reciving the 2nd vaccination. The referenced article raises doubts without any indication of how prevelant is their issue.
