Is the Vaccine Safe and effective? Will the Vaccine give me COVID? Are COVID Vaccines safe for children? Will, the vaccine make me sick? Will I experience side effects from the second dose? Will the vaccine work against the new COVID Variant? Will I have an allergic reaction from the vaccine? How long will vaccine immunity last? What’s the comparison between the different vaccines? Would my 2nd vaccination appointment be canceled if there’s a shortage? What are the updated eligibility categories?
With the COVID vaccination changing frequently, questions such as whether the vaccine is safe and effective and what kind of side effects are to be expected are common questions amongst community members. Many great questions were asked, much new information helped clarify the confusion about vaccination side effects and eligibility. Echo Song who is the Public Information Speaker, Bureau of Community Engagement, NYC DOHMH shares the most updated vaccine info in Chinese for our Chinese speakers.
Over 50 community members attended the webinar.
About 43% of attendees were new attendees to GCC Webinars.
Topics that drew the most attention and interest from the audience definitely included vaccine eligibility and how to make appointments. A lot of the audiences were also interested in understanding the things to know before and after getting vaccinated.
With the data continuing to evolve, it is important to continue to stay informed by checking the DOHMH website for the most up-to-date information. Vaccination doesn’t mean that you won’t catch COVID-19, but it gives you a fighting chance and helps reduce fatalities. It is important to understand that it is possible to be a carrier and transmit COVID-19 even if you are vaccinated. After vaccination, it is important to continue to practice social distancing, wear masks, and practice proper hygiene.
Echo Song is incredibly informed and delivers these presentations on a regular basis. These presentations however can quickly be outdated as new information surfaces.
It is important to know that vaccine information continues to change frequently as things evolve and to
refer to your primary doctor regarding your own personal health conditions to understand how the vaccine may affect you.
