CoViD-19 Vaccination … Facts & Myths


AAPHP has been asked to develop a one page sheet for physicians to adapt to their practice in informing patients about COVID-19 vaccine facts and myths.   The most recent version is here: FINAL DRAFT 10Jan21... Covid One-pager for practicing physicians.pdf  For those with internet access the CDC vaccine fact web page is an excellent resource available here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/facts.html   Doctors for American is another excellent resource available at:  https://drsforamerica.medium.com/dfa-covid-vaccine-toolkit-f4e6d1cb0a64 .

In addition, everyone who is able to receive the vaccine should be provided with the appropriate up-to-date  EUA or vaccine information sheet for that vaccine and assessed for contraindications.  The official fact sheets for each vaccine can be obtained from  https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/eua/index.html as well as   here  www.modernatx.com/covid19vaccine-eua and here     https://www.cvdvaccine.com/

Providers are also reminded of the need to report adverse vaccine events to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS): https://vaers.hhs.gov/reportevent.html
