EMS on AIR

We're back! It’s been over two months since our last COVID update, so we thought we’d kick off our return to season 2 with a discussion with our resident experts, Steve McGraw, D.O. and Dr. Russell Faust, MD, PhD.  Steve and Russ are both considered experts in their respective fields and they’re back to give a COVID-19 vaccine update, as well as answer recent questions from the EMS and hospital communities.  Most importantly, all of their answers are based in the latest scientific data and literature that clearly demonstrates the safety of the current COVID vaccines that are currently available. 

In today’s episode, we focus on the recent pause on the Johnson and Johnson vaccine.  Recently the CDC put a pause on use of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine so that they could review 6 cases of patients that experienced a rare clotting type that MAY be related to the vaccine.  Keep in mind, this was 6 people out of 6.8 million that received the Johnson and Johnson vaccine.  The six cases occurred in women between the ages of 18-48, six to 13 days after receiving the vaccine.  Steve and Russ will get into the details of what this all means and why you should still get your COVID vaccine.
