A note from Nevada Reed, M.D.

I’ve been asked by many of my patients and friends about my thoughts on covid vaccination. Having recently gotten a Moderna shot #1 myself, I took some time to careful review all of the evidence. After doing so, my advice to my patients is to get the vaccine when they can! The vaccine is doubly important to those with underlying medical conditions, including seizures, heart and lung disease, mobility limitations, obesity, diabetes and more.
 
New medical interventions can seem scary! Add to that the lack of full FDA approval (just on emergency authorization) and the general stress of our pandemic environment and the worried feelings are understandable! Having said that, the mRNA technology used in the Moderna and Pfizer vaccine has been studied for years, which is why it was able to be produced so quickly. After reading the original papers (linked below) I feel confident in the data and in mRA technology, which is safer in many ways than traditional vaccines! I am also linking an article and a podcast about mRNA technology which is really worth the time to get a better understanding of it!
 
 
Also some quick myths to debunk:
 
- The covid vaccine is NOT linked to infertility. This article may be from WebMD, but has a clear concise explanation.
 
- You CAN get the vaccine if you have allergies to oral medications, foods, bees or environmental allergens - even with a history of anaphylaxis. Only those with a history of allergic reaction to injectables (IV contrast, shots) need to be more cautious. The rate to date of anaphylaxis is 11 per 1,000,000 covid vaccines given (0.001%).
 
A lot of recommendations in medication sound scary - chemo, open heart surgery - but we trust in the science. I feel we should do the same now with the covid vaccine. Hope this information is helpful to you! #thisisourshot.
