The COVID vaccination world has been a little weird lately. Between the questions surrounding the Johnson and Johnson shot and the rest of the ever changing coronavirus landscape, it’s been tough to follow. Kim Bourne, President and CEO of Taylorville Memorial Hospital knows the changes all too well. Through it all she believes it’s important to receive the vaccine.
At the end of the day, it’s not a secret that vaccines don’t make you completely immune to anything. Bourne says what they do is lower the risk for severe cases.
The recent pause on administering the Johnson and Johnson shot might have scared some people off, but Bourne hopes it didn’t. To her the pause means safety is being ensured more than anything.
The one shot option is back, and Bourne says it should become more available for those who want it. And the risk is not what it seems.
