Dispelling Myths and Misinformation: Emergency Physician Separates Fact from Fiction About COVID-19 & the Vaccines

Good Day NWA

Many people have questions or are hesitant to get the vaccine in the US. Dr. Jessica Solis-McCarthy (American College of Emergency Physicians) joins Good Day NWA to address specific concerns about the vaccine and the virus and dispel any misleading information. This is straight talk from a doctor on the frontlines so that everyone can make safe choices about their health and protect themselves while COVID-19 surges through the community.

According to USAFacts.org (as of Oct. 13), only 46% of the population in Arkansas have been fully vaccinated.

Watch Dr. Solis-McCarthy discuss:
● Misleading health information is everywhere
● The development of the vaccines was not rushed
● Rigorous clinical trials have proven the COVID-19 vaccines to be effective and safe
● Very few people have side effects, and they tend to be mild
● It is still safer to get the vaccine despite a few breakthrough cases of vaccinated people who got COVID-19
● Not only will getting vaccinated protect you, but it will help prevent you from spreading COVID-19 to others who you’re around who are either too young or too sick to get the vaccine
