Marc Scholes is the Family Nurse Practitioner at the Community Medical Clinic and he says that it’s crucial that first responders get the COVID-19 vaccine first not only because they have to be healthy enough to take care of patients who are in need, but also because it shows everyone that the vaccine is safe to take.
The Community Medical Clinic has had some staff shortage issues, according to Scholes.
The COVID-19 vaccine is a new type of vaccine, but Scholes says that the research behind this type of vaccine has been happening for about a decade.
Scholes went on to outline the differences between this new type of vaccine and the older type of vaccines.
Marc Scholes was a guest on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
