Do you have questions about the COVID-19 vaccines, and wonder how safe and effective they are? Of course, you do. We all have them, so you've come to the right place. In his latest video presentation of A Dose of Science, Dr. Joe Schwarcz, the Director of McGill University's Office for Science and Society, clearly and simply explains how the vaccines were tested, and why they are all both safe and effective. Overall "we are very happy with what we are seeing," he says, so "go get the vaccine" because the health "benefits greatly outweigh the risks."
The COVID-19 vaccines are on everyone's minds these days and there is a huge amount of information to wade through, some of it conflicting and confusing. That is exactly why Dr. Joe, as he is also known, decided to go through each of them, one by one. He explains the facts, the fears, and most importantly, why every one of the vaccines is the key to saving lives and is worth taking.
ACSH friend Dr. Schwarcz also addresses the recent concerns emanating from Europe about possible blood-clot formations stemming from the AstraZeneca vaccine, but explains why it, too, is an effective option. He even discusses Russia's vaccine, the Sputnik-V, and examines its efficacy while offering a few thoughts of endorsement.
