2-10-21 As new COVID-19 variants spread and more people are vaccinated for COVID-19, people have more questions about COVID-19 vaccines. Dr. Gregory Poland, an infectious diseases expert and head of Mayo Clinic’s Vaccine Research Group, says that’s understandable with new information released every day. Friendly and very understandable.
For instance, people are wondering what type of medications they can take if they’re being vaccinated for COVID-19. There are also concerns about whether a person who has been vaccinated for COVID-19 can transmit the virus. And some are asking why they need to wait 14 days, before and after being vaccinated for COVID-19 vaccine, if they are scheduled to be given a different vaccine, such as a shingles vaccine.
In this Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Poland answers these questions and a variety of other listener questions.
