Covid Vaccine is one of the hottest “commodities” now a days. As the COVID 19 pandemic continues, every sector of the world is in dire need of the vaccine.
I uploaded this video early as our country finally has access to SINOVAC and soon the Astra Oxford Vaccine.
Covid vaccines like SINOVAC and Astra Oxford Vaccine are important as they are our only hope to end the pandemic. However questions and fear abound whether Sinovac or the Astra Oxford are good and safe enough to prevent Filipinos from getting the disease?
Are we assured that they are 100% effective … and if not…why bother?
Can I then wait for other vaccines to come that have better efficacy? Is one COVID vaccine better than the others?
Is there one particular vaccine that I recommend to my patients especially the Diabetics, the Overweight and the Elderly?
Listen to my thoughts and my advise….
