COVID-19 vaccines have been approved for kids between the ages of five and 11. Our concierge primary care doctors at MD 2.0 in Jupiter have been getting a lot of questions from concerned parents. Is it safe for my kids? Do they really need it? What about side effects?
The original clinical trials to find a COVID-19 vaccine excluded pregnant women. Many take that to mean the vaccines are unsafe for expectant mothers.
Even though later trials with pregnant women showed the vaccines are safe for them, the incorrect beliefs persist. Many still believe it’s dangerous for the mother, it’s dangerous for the baby or it can cause infertility. None of these things are true.
