Her presentation included a brief history of COVID-19 and data and demographics of those who have been vaccinated. She explained the differences between the approved vaccines – Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson – and detailed the symptoms some people have had after being vaccinated. Her presentation was followed by a Q&A session where staff asked a variety of questions, both general and personal, to help them make informed decisions about getting vaccinated.
