We pre-recorded today's conversation with Dr. Jeffrey Feit, Valley Health's Population & Community Health Officer to learn more about the Delta variant and bust a few more vaccine myths.
Dr. Feit explained how variants of the virus happen and why the Delta variant is more dangerous than the original version (COVID 1.0) of the virus. We talked about the effectiveness of the vaccines and the potential for boosters in the future.
I gave Dr. Feit a few of the arguments I've heard for not getting the vaccine and he offered advice & perspective for each. He also outright busted a few of the common myths we've heard throughout this year.
Finally Dr. Feit talked for a minute about the new vaccination policy that Valley Health released earlier this month. He explained how & why they arrived at the decision and talked about the role patient care & safety plays in all their decisions.
