00:03:45,000 –> 00:03:49,000
and the doctors will respond to your questions.

00:03:49,000 –> 00:03:51,000
SA

3
00:03:51,000 –> 00:03:55,000
first seminar. For this program, let me introduce myself. I’m the president of DAS. I’ll be setting up the rules. You’ll see CC at the bottom for closed caption. Pull up the list and you’ll see “show subtitles.” You can adjust these to fit your needs. If you have any questions. There’s a Q&A feature. You’ll be able to ask questions there, and the doctors will respond to your questions.

4
00:03:55,000 –> 00:03:59,000
We’re turning off the chat feature

5
00:03:59,000 –> 00:04:01,000
though because it can interrupt the

6
00:04:01,000 –> 00:04:05,000
captions and turn those off.

7
00:04:05,000 –> 00:04:14,000
So use the Q&A button for that.

8
00:04:14,000 –> 00:04:16,000
Before we start I’ll thank our sponsors.

9
00:04:16,000 –> 00:04:18,000
We’ll put those on the screen so you

10
00:04:18,000 –> 00:04:19,000
can see those.

11
00:04:19,000 –> 00:04:21,000
Ken,

12
00:04:21,000 –> 00:04:35,000
please can you do that?

13
00:04:35,000 –> 00:04:37,000
CSD,

14
00:04:37,000 –> 00:04:44,000
Purple,

15
00:04:44,000 –> 00:04:51,000
ZVRS has provided this type of service,

16
00:04:51,000 –> 00:04:56,000
is hosting this with the captions and interpreters.

17
00:04:56,000 –> 00:04:59,000
We have 2 interpreters here.

18
00:04:59,000 –> 00:05:00,000
Thank you for making this possible.

19
00:05:00,000 –> 00:05:04,000
OK,

20
00:05:04,000 –> 00:05:07,000
we can turn off the sponsor screen.

21
00:05:07,000 –> 00:05:09,000
Ready to introduce the panelists.

22
00:05:09,000 –> 00:05:10,000
First,

23
00:05:10,000 –> 00:05:16,000
Dr.

24
00:05:16,000 –> 00:05:21,000
Shazia Siddiqi

25
00:05:21,000 –> 00:05:23,000
. Did I get that right?

26
00:05:23,000 –> 00:05:30,000
>>SHAZIA: Yes.

27
00:05:30,000 –> 00:05:32,000
>>ALFRED: She’s from California near

28
00:05:32,000 –> 00:05:35,000
the Riverside location,

29
00:05:35,000 –> 00:05:41,000
working at the Department of

30
00:05:41,000 –> 00:05:47,000
OBGYN.

31
00:05:47,000 –> 00:05:52,000
That’s in Riverside.

32
00:05:52,000 –> 00:05:55,000
That’s where she’s focusing on

33
00:05:55,000 –> 00:05:58,000
developing health equality

34
00:05:58,000 –> 00:06:04,000

35
00:06:04,000 –> 00:06:08,000
global health inequality as well as

36
00:06:08,000 –> 00:06:10,000
children’s health.

37
00:06:10,000 –> 00:06:12,000
She moved from Rochester,

38
00:06:12,000 –> 00:06:14,000
NY.

39
00:06:14,000 –> 00:06:17,000
She worked at the medical center,

40
00:06:17,000 –> 00:06:22,000
where she worked with DAWN,

41
00:06:22,000 –> 00:06:27,000
the deaf abused women’s network.

42
00:06:27,000 –> 00:06:28,000
They provide support services for

43
00:06:28,000 –> 00:06:30,000
survivors of domestic violence.

44
00:06:30,000 –> 00:06:37,000
That’s in the Washington, D.C.

45
00:06:37,000 –> 00:06:41,000
area and has been there for a few years.

46
00:06:41,000 –> 00:06:43,000
She’s been deaf since birth.

47
00:06:43,000 –> 00:06:48,000
Next,

48
00:06:48,000 –> 00:06:49,000
I’ll introduce Jason he was born and raised

49
00:06:49,000 –> 00:06:51,000
in Rochester,

50
00:06:51,000 –> 00:06:53,000
NY.

51
00:06:53,000 –> 00:06:59,000
It’s a very very popular place.

52
00:06:59,000 –> 00:07:06,000
He went to medical school

53
00:07:06,000 –> 00:07:10,000
and was a resident in Buffalo.

54
00:07:10,000 –> 00:07:17,000
Now he’s the doctor and director of

55
00:07:17,000 –> 00:07:20,000
Deaf Health Pathways.

56
00:07:20,000 –> 00:07:23,000
He’s interested in research,

57
00:07:23,000 –> 00:07:31,000
as well as teaching about mental health.

58
00:07:31,000 –> 00:07:33,000
As well as sponoring and advocating

59
00:07:33,000 –> 00:07:41,000
for the deaf community.

60
00:07:41,000 –> 00:07:45,000
Last but not least is doctor Carl Mirus.

61
00:07:45,000 –> 00:07:47,000
Originally from Texas but now working

62
00:07:47,000 –> 00:07:51,000
in Rochester,

63
00:07:51,000 –> 00:07:54,000
NY working as a resident in the

64
00:07:54,000 –> 00:07:55,000
emergency department there in Rochester,

65
00:07:55,000 –> 00:08:01,000
NY.

66
00:08:01,000 –> 00:08:07,000
He’s also the chief resident as well

67
00:08:07,000 –> 00:08:13,000
as Director of accessibility.

68
00:08:13,000 –> 00:08:14,000
He was a sign language interpreter

69
00:08:14,000 –> 00:08:16,000
but he became a doctor.

70
00:08:16,000 –> 00:08:20,000
He’s a coda,

71
00:08:20,000 –> 00:08:26,000
child of deaf adults.

72
00:08:26,000 –> 00:08:32,000
I’ll be going off camera now.

73
00:08:32,000 –> 00:09:02,000
We’ll pull up Shazia so you can see her.

74
00:09:20,000 –> 00:09:22,000
We were just waiting on the

75
00:09:22,000 –> 00:09:24,000
interpreters to see me.

76
00:09:24,000 –> 00:09:25,000
We’re all good now.

77
00:09:25,000 –> 00:09:28,000
OK,

78
00:09:28,000 –> 00:09:31,000
all right and perfect.

79
00:09:31,000 –> 00:09:35,000
Thank you and welcome today.

80
00:09:35,000 –> 00:09:38,000
The 3 of us are with PDH,

81
00:09:38,000 –> 00:09:46,000
Partners in Deaf Health,

82
00:09:46,000 –> 00:09:47,000
, in Rochester,

83
00:09:47,000 –> 00:09:49,000
NY.

84
00:09:49,000 –> 00:09:52,000
It’s a non-profit organization

85
00:09:52,000 –> 00:09:56,000
providing community health education

86
00:09:56,000 –> 00:10:00,000
in sign language.

87
00:10:00,000 –> 00:10:03,000
Thank you for letting us provide this.

88
00:10:03,000 –> 00:10:08,000
It’s a very important topic to talk about,

89
00:10:08,000 –> 00:10:10,000
that’s Coronavirus and the vaccine and

90
00:10:10,000 –> 00:10:13,000
your health.

91
00:10:13,000 –> 00:10:15,000
Thank you,

92
00:10:15,000 –> 00:10:20,000
Deaf Seniors of America,

93
00:10:20,000 –> 00:10:24,000
I do have a PowerPoint and we’ll 3

94
00:10:24,000 –> 00:10:33,000
take turns speaking in today’s seminar.

95
00:10:33,000 –> 00:10:35,000
The basic topics today will be COVID-19.

96
00:10:35,000 –> 00:10:39,000
Who’s at health risk,

97
00:10:39,000 –> 00:10:44,000
who’s more likely to get it,

98
00:10:44,000 –> 00:10:47,000
how do we minimize the risk of

99
00:10:47,000 –> 00:10:50,000
contracting it and now the topic of the vaccine.

100
00:10:50,000 –> 00:10:57,000
We are seeing it roll out now and the

101
00:10:57,000 –> 00:11:00,000
concept of herd immunity.

102
00:11:00,000 –> 00:11:04,000
People might think that’s a cure.

103
00:11:04,000 –> 00:11:09,000
When’s the next vaccine to be distributed?

104
00:11:09,000 –> 00:11:12,000
Those are the basics we’ll be talking

105
00:11:12,000 –> 00:11:26,000
about today.

106
00:11:26,000 –> 00:11:36,000
>>JASON:

107
00:11:36,000 –> 00:11:39,000
[Interpreter asked Jason to repeat.]

108
00:11:39,000 –> 00:11:44,000
The most current information we have

109
00:11:44,000 –> 00:11:46,000
so far now but it may change 1-2 months

110
00:11:46,000 –> 00:11:48,000
from now so keep in mind that this is

111
00:11:48,000 –> 00:11:56,000
just the information we have now.

112
00:11:56,000 –> 00:12:00,000
Will

113
00:12:00,000 –> 00:12:02,000
It’s a hot topic.

114
00:12:02,000 –> 00:12:04,000
It’s been going on almost.

115
00:12:04,000 –> 00:12:05,000
Year now,

116
00:12:05,000 –> 00:12:09,000
with the spread.

117
00:12:09,000 –> 00:12:13,000
>>SHAZIA: It’s a hot topic. It’s been going on almost. Year now, with the spread.

118
00:12:13,000 –> 00:12:14,000
It was January 20 of last year the

119
00:12:14,000 –> 00:12:20,000
first case happened.

120
00:12:20,000 –> 00:12:24,000
The virus is Sars coV 2.

121
00:12:24,000 –> 00:12:25,000
The sign comes from the family of

122
00:12:25,000 –> 00:12:27,000
that virus,

123
00:12:27,000 –> 00:12:31,000
the molecule.

124
00:12:31,000 –> 00:12:36,000
And you know Coronavirus has been

125
00:12:36,000 –> 00:12:39,000
around with Sars,

126
00:12:39,000 –> 00:12:41,000
MERS 2014,

127
00:12:41,000 –> 00:12:46,000
it’s almost like.

128
00:12:46,000 –> 00:12:51,000
family genetics.

129
00:12:51,000 –> 00:13:00,000
Corona means crown.

130
00:13:00,000 –> 00:13:05,000
Maybe you have seen the virus itself.

131
00:13:05,000 –> 00:13:06,000
It looks like a ball with spikes on

132
00:13:06,000 –> 00:13:12,000
it with the picture here.

133
00:13:12,000 –> 00:13:14,000
The spike protons that are in it have RNA,

134
00:13:14,000 –> 00:13:19,000
genetic information inside.

135
00:13:19,000 –> 00:13:21,000
That’s how it spreads through your

136
00:13:21,000 –> 00:13:25,000
body and replicates.

137
00:13:25,000 –> 00:13:26,000
I’ll be going into more details on

138
00:13:26,000 –> 00:13:27,000
that later —

139
00:13:27,000 –> 00:13:32,000
how it works in the body,

140
00:13:32,000 –> 00:13:35,000
information on how the vaccine was developed.

141
00:13:35,000 –> 00:13:41,000
But people may wonder the difference

142
00:13:41,000 –> 00:13:49,000
between SARS-CoV-2

143
00:13:49,000 –> 00:13:55,000
and actually getting sick with COVID-19.

144
00:13:55,000 –> 00:13:58,000
*[interpreter clarifies it’s proteins

145
00:13:58,000 –> 00:14:03,000
not protons inside of it.]

146
00:14:03,000 –> 00:14:07,000
How is the virus transmitted?

147
00:14:07,000 –> 00:14:10,000
Through your respiratory system,

148
00:14:10,000 –> 00:14:12,000
you can get it through your lungs,

149
00:14:12,000 –> 00:14:13,000
mouth,

150
00:14:13,000 –> 00:14:16,000
nose and whatnot.

151
00:14:16,000 –> 00:14:18,000
Then you pass droplets on to other people,

152
00:14:18,000 –> 00:14:19,000
through sneezing,

153
00:14:19,000 –> 00:14:23,000
talking,

154
00:14:23,000 –> 00:14:28,000
even some spit can come out.

155
00:14:28,000 –> 00:14:29,000
Incubation means when you contract it.

156
00:14:29,000 –> 00:14:33,000
Like for example,

157
00:14:33,000 –> 00:14:36,000
when the virus starts or not,

158
00:14:36,000 –> 00:14:40,000
when it starts to spread through your body,

159
00:14:40,000 –> 00:14:45,000
2 up to 14 days,

160
00:14:45,000 –> 00:14:46,000
is what we call the incubation period

161
00:14:46,000 –> 00:14:50,000
.

162
00:14:50,000 –> 00:14:52,000
We know a lot more about it because

163
00:14:52,000 –> 00:14:59,000
we’ve looked into it.

164
00:14:59,000 –> 00:15:04,000
January 2020 it spread throughout China.

165
00:15:04,000 –> 00:15:05,000
They shared the genetic information

166
00:15:05,000 –> 00:15:09,000
throughout the world.

167
00:15:09,000 –> 00:15:13,000
The world started to anylze it and

168
00:15:13,000 –> 00:15:17,000
found out the virus was in the genetic material.

169
00:15:17,000 –> 00:15:22,000
Then they found out that the virus

170
00:15:22,000 –> 00:15:29,000
has the spike proteins.

171
00:15:29,000 –> 00:15:36,000
Our cells have ACE2 receptors.

172
00:15:36,000 –> 00:15:39,000
So the virus comes into the body,

173
00:15:39,000 –> 00:15:41,000
and attaches to the receptors,

174
00:15:41,000 –> 00:15:44,000
stabilizers.

175
00:15:44,000 –> 00:15:52,000
That right there is the key reason

176
00:15:52,000 –> 00:15:58,000
why this virus is affecting your whole body.

177
00:15:58,000 –> 00:16:00,000
That ACE2 stabilizer is found in 90

178
00:16:00,000 –> 00:16:01,000
different organs —

179
00:16:01,000 –> 00:16:02,000
your mouth,

180
00:16:02,000 –> 00:16:04,000
nose,

181
00:16:04,000 –> 00:16:05,000
lungs,

182
00:16:05,000 –> 00:16:10,000
colon.

183
00:16:10,000 –> 00:16:13,000
That’s why it affects your whole body.

184
00:16:13,000 –> 00:16:17,000
There’s been plenty of research done

185
00:16:17,000 –> 00:16:18,000
but still more needs to be done on how

186
00:16:18,000 –> 00:16:44,000
that process is.

187
00:16:44,000 –> 00:16:46,000
For the incubation period that’s

188
00:16:46,000 –> 00:16:48,000
4-14 days.

189
00:16:48,000 –> 00:16:51,000
That means you can be exposed by

190
00:16:51,000 –> 00:16:55,000
another person who has Coronavirus.

191
00:16:55,000 –> 00:16:56,000
You could be fine and go about your

192
00:16:56,000 –> 00:17:02,000
day for

193
00:17:02,000 –> 00:17:08,000
even up 2 weeks.

194
00:17:08,000 –> 00:17:12,000
It can take 2 weeks from exposure —

195
00:17:12,000 –> 00:17:15,000
to actually get it.

196
00:17:15,000 –> 00:17:16,000
You might have no symptoms or signs

197
00:17:16,000 –> 00:17:18,000
of having the virus.

198
00:17:18,000 –> 00:17:23,000
After those 2 weeks,

199
00:17:23,000 –> 00:17:26,000
if you still have no symptoms it means

200
00:17:26,000 –> 00:17:31,000
you didn’t get the virus.

201
00:17:31,000 –> 00:17:34,000
What you need to worry about and look

202
00:17:34,000 –> 00:17:38,000
for are: the symptoms.

203
00:17:38,000 –> 00:17:42,000
Most people who get sick with

204
00:17:42,000 –> 00:17:46,000
COVID-19 have a temperature of 104 degres+.

205
00:17:46,000 –> 00:17:50,000
That’s the most common symptom.

206
00:17:50,000 –> 00:17:54,000
#2 symptom is a cough.

207
00:17:54,000 –> 00:17:56,000
If it’s hard to stop coughing.

208
00:17:56,000 –> 00:18:01,000
If you have a fever or cough,

209
00:18:01,000 –> 00:18:03,000
best to go get a COVID-19 test,

210
00:18:03,000 –> 00:18:06,000
the nasal swab.

211
00:18:06,000 –> 00:18:09,000
There are other symptoms though —

212
00:18:09,000 –> 00:18:12,000
you can feel chills,

213
00:18:12,000 –> 00:18:15,000
aches and pains throughout your body,

214
00:18:15,000 –> 00:18:17,000
your body can be sore.

215
00:18:17,000 –> 00:18:19,000
Also,

216
00:18:19,000 –> 00:18:22,000
loss of smell,

217
00:18:22,000 –> 00:18:27,000
when you’re cooking you can’t smell something.

218
00:18:27,000 –> 00:18:31,000
Or you lose your taste sense too.

219
00:18:31,000 –> 00:18:32,000
Some people feel nausea,

220
00:18:32,000 –> 00:18:34,000
vomit,

221
00:18:34,000 –> 00:18:37,000
diarrhea,

222
00:18:37,000 –> 00:18:42,000
headache and congestion.

223
00:18:42,000 –> 00:18:46,000
But most common is the fever and cough.

224
00:18:46,000 –> 00:19:00,000
So it’s best to go ahead and get that vaccine.

225
00:19:00,000 –> 00:19:04,000
OK,

226
00:19:04,000 –> 00:19:08,000
so who is in the most high risk group?

227
00:19:08,000 –> 00:19:12,000
Everyone can get affected by Coronavirus.

228
00:19:12,000 –> 00:19:16,000
There are some groups at higher risk

229
00:19:16,000 –> 00:19:24,000
of contracting the disease.

230
00:19:24,000 –> 00:19:27,000
Usually 65 yo+ people who live in

231
00:19:27,000 –> 00:19:30,000
long term care facilities.

232
00:19:30,000 –> 00:19:32,000
But it can affect anyone.

233
00:19:32,000 –> 00:19:34,000
Anyone with medical issues,

234
00:19:34,000 –> 00:19:35,000
lung diseases,

235
00:19:35,000 –> 00:19:37,000
ongoing l

236
00:19:37,000 –> 00:19:39,000
ong term,

237
00:19:39,000 –> 00:19:41,000
pulmonary issues,

238
00:19:41,000 –> 00:19:43,000
asthma,

239
00:19:43,000 –> 00:19:47,000
immunocompromised people,

240
00:19:47,000 –> 00:19:49,000
if you’re going through cancer

241
00:19:49,000 –> 00:19:52,000
treatments like chemotherapy.

242
00:19:52,000 –> 00:19:56,000
If you had an organ transplant,

243
00:19:56,000 –> 00:19:57,000
or if your body is immune-

244
00:19:57,000 –> 00:19:59,000
deficient.

245
00:19:59,000 –> 00:20:00,000
If you’re obese,

246
00:20:00,000 –> 00:20:03,000
diabetic,

247
00:20:03,000 –> 00:20:07,000
have kidney disease,

248
00:20:07,000 –> 00:20:12,000
or liver diseases.

249
00:20:12,000 –> 00:20:16,000
Those groups are specifically more

250
00:20:16,000 –> 00:20:28,000
high risk for Coronavirus symptoms.

251
00:20:28,000 –> 00:20:30,000
So how do we minimize the risk and try

252
00:20:30,000 –> 00:20:33,000
not to contract the virus.

253
00:20:33,000 –> 00:20:34,000
Hopefully you’ve been listening the

254
00:20:34,000 –> 00:20:36,000
last year.

255
00:20:36,000 –> 00:20:40,000
Stay 6 feet apart,

256
00:20:40,000 –> 00:20:42,000
social distance so people don’t get

257
00:20:42,000 –> 00:20:45,000
drops on you when they cough.

258
00:20:45,000 –> 00:20:51,000
Use a tissue,

259
00:20:51,000 –> 00:20:53,000
throw away the tissue when you’re done,

260
00:20:53,000 –> 00:20:55,000
wear a mask.

261
00:20:55,000 –> 00:20:57,000
Don’t touch your eyes,

262
00:20:57,000 –> 00:20:58,000
face,

263
00:20:58,000 –> 00:21:00,000
mouth,

264
00:21:00,000 –> 00:21:03,000
nose when you’re signing —

265
00:21:03,000 –> 00:21:07,000
I know it’s hard.

266
00:21:07,000 –> 00:21:11,000
Stay home if you’re not feeling well.

267
00:21:11,000 –> 00:21:16,000
Disinfect surfaces.

268
00:21:16,000 –> 00:21:19,000
Seek medical attention if you need to.

269
00:21:19,000 –> 00:21:22,000
But #1 is wash your hands.

270
00:21:22,000 –> 00:21:24,000
Over and over and over again this is

271
00:21:24,000 –> 00:21:28,000
a key point.

272
00:21:28,000 –> 00:21:38,000
Wash for 20 seconds.

273
00:21:38,000 –> 00:21:39,000
People keep asking me how Coronavirus

274
00:21:39,000 –> 00:21:42,000
goes in your body.

275
00:21:42,000 –> 00:21:48,000
I’ll just touch on this very basically.

276
00:21:48,000 –> 00:21:53,000
So there’s the virus and

277
00:21:53,000 –> 00:21:55,000
it’ll go into your lungs,

278
00:21:55,000 –> 00:21:59,000
the aveolas,

279
00:21:59,000 –> 00:22:01,000
looks like little bunghes at the end.

280
00:22:01,000 –> 00:22:04,000
When you breathe in,

281
00:22:04,000 –> 00:22:07,000
your oxygen goes through,

282
00:22:07,000 –> 00:22:10,000
mixes with the blood,

283
00:22:10,000 –> 00:22:13,000
goes out as carbon dioxide.

284
00:22:13,000 –> 00:22:17,000
That areas where the bubbles are,

285
00:22:17,000 –> 00:22:20,000
is where the gas exchange happens.

286
00:22:20,000 –> 00:22:21,000
When the virus comes in and attaches

287
00:22:21,000 –> 00:22:27,000
to the receptors,

288
00:22:27,000 –> 00:22:32,000
it’ll usually damage the receptors and

289
00:22:32,000 –> 00:22:37,000
then the aveola cells.

290
00:22:37,000 –> 00:22:42,000
Your body doesn’t know what to do so

291
00:22:42,000 –> 00:22:47,000
it starts fighting against it.

292
00:22:47,000 –> 00:22:50,000
When fluid starts building up in the aveolas,

293
00:22:50,000 –> 00:22:57,000
it feels like you can’t breathe.

294
00:22:57,000 –> 00:22:59,000
The carbon dioxide is not being fully exhaled.

295
00:22:59,000 –> 00:23:03,000
There’s a lot of issues with that.

296
00:23:03,000 –> 00:23:06,000
The aveolas need to be fixed.

297
00:23:06,000 –> 00:23:07,000
Whenever there’s.

298
00:23:07,000 –> 00:23:12,000
Problem,

299
00:23:12,000 –> 00:23:21,000
when your body has an inflammation response,

300
00:23:21,000 –> 00:23:24,000
that can become very severe and serious.

301
00:23:24,000 –> 00:23:28,000
It can lead to death.

302
00:23:28,000 –> 00:23:29,000
That’s why we have to take the virus

303
00:23:29,000 –> 00:23:34,000
very seriously.

304
00:23:34,000 –> 00:23:36,000
We have some general knowledge about

305
00:23:36,000 –> 00:23:41,000
COVID-19 but are still doing research.

306
00:23:41,000 –> 00:23:45,000
OK I’ll hand it over to John who will

307
00:23:45,000 –> 00:23:51,000
talk about what happens when you get to

308
00:23:51,000 –> 00:23:54,000
the hospital.

309
00:23:54,000 –> 00:23:58,000
>>JASON: Okay,

310
00:23:58,000 –> 00:24:01,000
what to expect: a couple important things.

311
00:24:01,000 –> 00:24:03,000
When you first get there they’ll

312
00:24:03,000 –> 00:24:05,000
check your vital signs,

313
00:24:05,000 –> 00:24:08,000
your breathing rate,

314
00:24:08,000 –> 00:24:13,000
how many times you’re breathing a minute.

315
00:24:13,000 –> 00:24:14,000
Then they’ll check your oxygen level.

316
00:24:14,000 –> 00:24:19,000
That’s the most important.

317
00:24:19,000 –> 00:24:22,000
Then your eveioli when they’re in

318
00:24:22,000 –> 00:24:29,000
your lungs,

319
00:24:29,000 –> 00:24:33,000
they fill up with fluid so your oxygen

320
00:24:33,000 –> 00:24:36,000
level decreases and you can’t breathe.

321
00:24:36,000 –> 00:24:41,000
This has to be fixed immediately.

322
00:24:41,000 –> 00:24:46,000
The doctor might listen to your lungs

323
00:24:46,000 –> 00:24:50,000
and notice something doesn’t sound right.

324
00:24:50,000 –> 00:24:52,000
They’ll send you to get an Xray.

325
00:24:52,000 –> 00:24:57,000
They’re looking for that.

326
00:24:57,000 –> 00:25:03,000
If they notice your o2 is going down,

327
00:25:03,000 –> 00:25:07,000
they can give you a nasal canula which

328
00:25:07,000 –> 00:25:10,000
is a small tube to help you raise your

329
00:25:10,000 –> 00:25:19,000
oxygen levels

330
00:25:19,000 –> 00:25:23,000
. There are bigger masks that go over

331
00:25:23,000 –> 00:25:25,000
your masks and nose that help you

332
00:25:25,000 –> 00:25:31,000
breathe better.

333
00:25:31,000 –> 00:25:36,000
Then for more severe cases there

334
00:25:36,000 –> 00:25:42,000
are breathing machines.

335
00:25:42,000 –> 00:25:46,000
We do try to limit your fluids through

336
00:25:46,000 –> 00:25:48,000
IV though because we don’t want to

337
00:25:48,000 –> 00:25:52,000
overhydrate them.

338
00:25:52,000 –> 00:25:55,000
If your blood pressure starts to

339
00:25:55,000 –> 00:25:57,000
decrease we might do a little bit of

340
00:25:57,000 –> 00:26:03,000
fluid but we try to do too much.

341
00:26:03,000 –> 00:26:04,000
You’re already over-saturated with

342
00:26:04,000 –> 00:26:11,000
fluid in your lungs.

343
00:26:11,000 –> 00:26:15,000
OK,

344
00:26:15,000 –> 00:26:16,000
there are 2 different kind of

345
00:26:16,000 –> 00:26:19,000
Coronavirus testing —

346
00:26:19,000 –> 00:26:24,000
there’s a diagnostic test.

347
00:26:24,000 –> 00:26:27,000
That’s the swab that’ll go in your

348
00:26:27,000 –> 00:26:31,000
nasal cavity to test to see the amount

349
00:26:31,000 –> 00:26:34,000
of the virus RNA that’s in your body.

350
00:26:34,000 –> 00:26:39,000
If you have a positive test result,

351
00:26:39,000 –> 00:26:46,000
it means you currently have COVID-19.

352
00:26:46,000 –> 00:26:47,000
There’s another test called an antibody test,

353
00:26:47,000 –> 00:26:51,000
a blood test.

354
00:26:51,000 –> 00:26:58,000
They’ll draw your blood.

355
00:26:58,000 –> 00:27:02,000
And check it to see what your levels are.

356
00:27:02,000 –> 00:27:04,000
If that is positive it means you have

357
00:27:04,000 –> 00:27:17,000
or have previously

358
00:27:17,000 –> 00:27:18,000
had it.

359
00:27:18,000 –> 00:27:26,000
Your body Hosea a memory.

360
00:27:26,000 –> 00:27:31,000
antibodies.

361
00:27:31,000 –> 00:27:39,000
This is a quick explanation but when

362
00:27:39,000 –> 00:27:45,000
new viruses enter the body,

363
00:27:45,000 –> 00:27:59,000
your body knows it’s a foreign substance.

364
00:27:59,000 –> 00:28:03,000
Your body tries to fight it off.

365
00:28:03,000 –> 00:28:07,000
If you’ve gotten a measles vaccination,

366
00:28:07,000 –> 00:28:10,000
that virus has 1 specific antibody

367
00:28:10,000 –> 00:28:19,000
that recognizes it.

368
00:28:19,000 –> 00:28:24,000
The flu has its own unique antibody,

369
00:28:24,000 –> 00:28:28,000
whenever a new virus comes on it has

370
00:28:28,000 –> 00:28:35,000
no idea what to do.

371
00:28:35,000 –> 00:28:37,000
It tries to build up immunity and your

372
00:28:37,000 –> 00:28:41,000
body gets tired.

373
00:28:41,000 –> 00:28:45,000
So your body sees the virus and

374
00:28:45,000 –> 00:28:49,000
starts building up antibodies before so

375
00:28:49,000 –> 00:28:56,000
you have enough “soldiers” to fight it

376
00:28:56,000 –> 00:28:57,000
so you have enough to fight it if the

377
00:28:57,000 –> 00:29:03,000
real virus comes in.

378
00:29:03,000 –> 00:29:10,000
That’s just basic information on how

379
00:29:10,000 –> 00:29:16,000
your body fights new viruses that come into it.

380
00:29:16,000 –> 00:29:19,000
1 thing that’s cool about our immune

381
00:29:19,000 –> 00:29:22,000
system is we can build up AB

382
00:29:22,000 –> 00:29:26,000
antibodies.

383
00:29:26,000 –> 00:29:29,000
Our body will start working to build

384
00:29:29,000 –> 00:29:31,000
those up the first time we’re exposed

385
00:29:31,000 –> 00:29:34,000
to it.

386
00:29:34,000 –> 00:29:35,000
Maybe you have like 50% of the

387
00:29:35,000 –> 00:29:39,000
antibodies you need.

388
00:29:39,000 –> 00:29:40,000
There’s a second vaccine after 3

389
00:29:40,000 –> 00:29:44,000
weeks you get.

390
00:29:44,000 –> 00:29:48,000
You have to give your body time to

391
00:29:48,000 –> 00:29:52,000
build up the original antibodies.

392
00:29:52,000 –> 00:29:56,000
Then you get a second dose of the vaccine.

393
00:29:56,000 –> 00:29:59,000
It’ll increase you up to say 100 antibodies.

394
00:29:59,000 –> 00:30:01,000
That’s why you see people getting 2

395
00:30:01,000 –> 00:30:03,000
vaccine doses.

396
00:30:03,000 –> 00:30:05,000
I think that’s the really cool thing

397
00:30:05,000 –> 00:30:08,000
about our bodies.

398
00:30:08,000 –> 00:30:09,000
They can actually make these things,

399
00:30:09,000 –> 00:30:11,000
they have memories,

400
00:30:11,000 –> 00:30:13,000
and our cells remember.

401
00:30:13,000 –> 00:30:18,000
In the future,

402
00:30:18,000 –> 00:30:21,000
if the virus does infect you,

403
00:30:21,000 –> 00:30:26,000
your body has these antibodies on standby,

404
00:30:26,000 –> 00:30:37,000
ready to attack the virus.

405
00:30:37,000 –> 00:30:39,000
Go ahead,

406
00:30:39,000 –> 00:30:46,000
Al.

407
00:30:46,000 –> 00:30:47,000
>>ALFRED: I just want to add a little

408
00:30:47,000 –> 00:30:51,000
something to that.

409
00:30:51,000 –> 00:30:54,000
I do notice that on your chart —

410
00:30:54,000 –> 00:30:56,000
no I mean on this zoom,

411
00:30:56,000 –> 00:30:59,000
the PowerPoint is very big.

412
00:30:59,000 –> 00:31:01,000
People don’t realize you can use your

413
00:31:01,000 –> 00:31:07,000
cursor

414
00:31:07,000 –> 00:31:10,000
. See where the white line is,

415
00:31:10,000 –> 00:31:14,000
where the end of the PowerPoint is?

416
00:31:14,000 –> 00:31:15,000
You can click on that to make the

417
00:31:15,000 –> 00:31:17,000
speakers larger,

418
00:31:17,000 –> 00:31:20,000
and the slides smaller.

419
00:31:20,000 –> 00:31:26,000
You can adjust it to how you prefer.

420
00:31:26,000 –> 00:31:40,000
Continue enjoying the webinar. Thank you.

421
00:31:40,000 –> 00:31:44,000
>>SHAZIA: Now when The virus enters

422
00:31:44,000 –> 00:31:45,000
the body with no vaccine it’ll spread

423
00:31:45,000 –> 00:31:47,000
throughout your body,

424
00:31:47,000 –> 00:31:49,000
like shown here in the picture.

425
00:31:49,000 –> 00:31:54,000
You’ll get symptoms.

426
00:31:54,000 –> 00:31:56,000
If you get the vaccine your body has

427
00:31:56,000 –> 00:32:00,000
already started making antibodies.

428
00:32:00,000 –> 00:32:02,000
So the chance of symptoms when the

429
00:32:02,000 –> 00:32:07,000
virus goes into your body is way less

430
00:32:07,000 –> 00:32:08,000
I know some people have heard the term

431
00:32:08,000 –> 00:32:10,000
herd immunity.

432
00:32:10,000 –> 00:32:12,000
I’ll show you the concept here in

433
00:32:12,000 –> 00:32:14,000
these diagrams.

434
00:32:14,000 –> 00:32:17,000
If there was no vaccine,

435
00:32:17,000 –> 00:32:21,000
no social distancing and everything

436
00:32:21,000 –> 00:32:22,000
was just normal of course the virus

437
00:32:22,000 –> 00:32:25,000
would run rampant.

438
00:32:25,000 –> 00:32:27,000
It’d go everywhere.

439
00:32:27,000 –> 00:32:32,000
Now if there is a vaccine,

440
00:32:32,000 –> 00:32:34,000
but no social distancing and

441
00:32:34,000 –> 00:32:38,000
everything goes back to normal,

442
00:32:38,000 –> 00:32:39,000
you’d still have a significant amount

443
00:32:39,000 –> 00:32:40,000
of spread.

444
00:32:40,000 –> 00:32:43,000
Maybe slower,

445
00:32:43,000 –> 00:32:50,000
but it’d still spread.

446
00:32:50,000 –> 00:32:54,000
With vaccinations,

447
00:32:54,000 –> 00:33:00,000
social distancing being followed,

448
00:33:00,000 –> 00:33:02,000
the goal is to get 60-90 % of our

449
00:33:02,000 –> 00:33:06,000
population vaccinated.

450
00:33:06,000 –> 00:33:09,000
Once that amount of people are vaccinated,

451
00:33:09,000 –> 00:33:11,000
if you can’t get the vaccine for

452
00:33:11,000 –> 00:33:14,000
whatever reason —

453
00:33:14,000 –> 00:33:16,000
if you’re immunocompromised,

454
00:33:16,000 –> 00:33:18,000
going through chemo,

455
00:33:18,000 –> 00:33:22,000
being allergic to it.

456
00:33:22,000 –> 00:33:26,000
There’s reasons why some people just

457
00:33:26,000 –> 00:33:30,000
cannot get the immunization.

458
00:33:30,000 –> 00:33:34,000
But if the rest of the population does,

459
00:33:34,000 –> 00:33:37,000
the virus can’t spread and it’ll help

460
00:33:37,000 –> 00:33:39,000
the people who can’t get

461
00:33:39,000 –> 00:33:49,000
the vaccine.

462
00:33:49,000 –> 00:33:55,000
So it helps everyone else to get vaccinated.

463
00:33:55,000 –> 00:34:01,000
We had a couple of good questions.

464
00:34:01,000 –> 00:34:08,000
Is the nasal swab or the blood test better?

465
00:34:08,000 –> 00:34:12,000
They’re used for diifrnt purposes – if

466
00:34:12,000 –> 00:34:16,000
you have a cough or fever,

467
00:34:16,000 –> 00:34:18,000
they’ll use the nasal swab.

468
00:34:18,000 –> 00:34:21,000
The reason they do the blood test,

469
00:34:21,000 –> 00:34:25,000
is if you’re no sure whether or not

470
00:34:25,000 –> 00:34:29,000
you’ve had Coronavirus.

471
00:34:29,000 –> 00:34:32,000
Maybe you’re not having symptoms now

472
00:34:32,000 –> 00:34:34,000
but wondering if you had it a couple

473
00:34:34,000 –> 00:34:35,000
months ago.

474
00:34:35,000 –> 00:34:40,000
But with symptoms now,

475
00:34:40,000 –> 00:34:48,000
the nasal swab.

476
00:34:48,000 –> 00:34:51,000
Someone else asks if you should get the

477
00:34:51,000 –> 00:34:54,000
antibodies test before you do the vaccine?

478
00:34:54,000 –> 00:34:57,000
No not necessary.

479
00:34:57,000 –> 00:35:01,000
The only time you don’t want to get

480
00:35:01,000 –> 00:35:02,000
the vaccine is if you have current symptoms

481
00:35:02,000 –> 00:35:05,000
of Coronavirus.

482
00:35:05,000 –> 00:35:09,000
If you already had Coronavirus in the

483
00:35:09,000 –> 00:35:13,000
past and have recovered you don’t have

484
00:35:13,000 –> 00:35:16,000
to get tested for antibodies before

485
00:35:16,000 –> 00:35:21,000
being vaccinated.

486
00:35:21,000 –> 00:35:24,000
Thank you very much and feel free to

487
00:35:24,000 –> 00:35:29,000
put anything any questions in the Q&A.

488
00:35:29,000 –> 00:35:31,000
>>JASON: Adding something: maybe you

489
00:35:31,000 –> 00:35:35,000
were infected with Coronavirus prior.

490
00:35:35,000 –> 00:35:36,000
You may have some antibodies still in

491
00:35:36,000 –> 00:35:41,000
your body.

492
00:35:41,000 –> 00:35:45,000
It might not be enough to fight the infection.

493
00:35:45,000 –> 00:35:49,000
But it might be helpful to remind

494
00:35:49,000 –> 00:35:51,000
your body with the second vaccine.

495
00:35:51,000 –> 00:35:54,000
That graph —

496
00:35:54,000 –> 00:35:57,000
the second part of the vaccine —

497
00:35:57,000 –> 00:36:01,000
that she put up is really important so

498
00:36:01,000 –> 00:36:04,000
you can build up enough antibodies to

499
00:36:04,000 –> 00:36:26,000
really fight the infection.

500
00:36:26,000 –> 00:36:27,000
Typically it takes 5-10 years to

501
00:36:27,000 –> 00:36:30,000
develop a vaccine.

502
00:36:30,000 –> 00:36:34,000
But the situation was so serious.

503
00:36:34,000 –> 00:36:37,000
A lot of people were dying and the

504
00:36:37,000 –> 00:36:39,000
whole world really had to come together

505
00:36:39,000 –> 00:36:40,000
to find a vaccine.

506
00:36:40,000 –> 00:36:42,000
As I mentioned,

507
00:36:42,000 –> 00:36:46,000
in January 2020,

508
00:36:46,000 –> 00:36:48,000
China gave the world information it

509
00:36:48,000 –> 00:36:53,000
was passed genetically,

510
00:36:53,000 –> 00:36:55,000
so the world went on developing information,

511
00:36:55,000 –> 00:36:58,000
and vaccine trials.

512
00:36:58,000 –> 00:37:01,000
The first was about the virus itself,

513
00:37:01,000 –> 00:37:07,000
there were pre-clinical phases,

514
00:37:07,000 –> 00:37:10,000
where they looked at effects on animals.

515
00:37:10,000 –> 00:37:12,000
Then there was clinical phases 1,

516
00:37:12,000 –> 00:37:14,000
2,

517
00:37:14,000 –> 00:37:19,000
3 which start testing on people.

518
00:37:19,000 –> 00:37:25,000
They compare people who do and didn’t

519
00:37:25,000 –> 00:37:28,000
get the vaccine (a placebo)

520
00:37:28,000 –> 00:37:34,000
. Usually they watch those effects

521
00:37:34,000 –> 00:37:40,000
over 4-5 years because that clinical

522
00:37:40,000 –> 00:37:43,000
phase and manufacturing typically takes

523
00:37:43,000 –> 00:37:51,000
5-10 years.

524
00:37:51,000 –> 00:37:53,000
But there was overlap now in the clinical phases 1, 2,

525
00:37:53,000 –> 00:37:56,000
3.

526
00:37:56,000 –> 00:38:00,000
And right now our technology is amazing.

527
00:38:00,000 –> 00:38:03,000
It can really go so much faster even

528
00:38:03,000 –> 00:38:07,000
than 10 years ago.

529
00:38:07,000 –> 00:38:08,000
They were able to do a lot of this a

530
00:38:08,000 –> 00:38:10,000
lot quicker.

531
00:38:10,000 –> 00:38:13,000
Also,

532
00:38:13,000 –> 00:38:17,000
quickly want to touch on a little bit

533
00:38:17,000 –> 00:38:24,000
of the background of why you see so

534
00:38:24,000 –> 00:38:28,000
many different companies making the

535
00:38:28,000 –> 00:38:31,000
vaccines or different kind of vaccines.

536
00:38:31,000 –> 00:38:36,000
That’s totally traditional.

537
00:38:36,000 –> 00:38:41,000
Classic vaccine is to use dead virus

538
00:38:41,000 –> 00:38:42,000
in the vaccine to allow your body to build

539
00:38:42,000 –> 00:38:43,000
antibodies.

540
00:38:43,000 –> 00:38:46,000
That’s the old way.

541
00:38:46,000 –> 00:38:50,000
Now there’s new technology.

542
00:38:50,000 –> 00:38:52,000
Now they use either DNA or RNA

543
00:38:52,000 –> 00:38:57,000
information or a vector.

544
00:38:57,000 –> 00:38:59,000
They have different kind of viral

545
00:38:59,000 –> 00:39:05,000
vectors that they put into the vaccine.

546
00:39:05,000 –> 00:39:07,000
Now the whole world is researching this

547
00:39:07,000 –> 00:39:11,000
new kind of vaccine.

548
00:39:11,000 –> 00:39:15,000
We don’t know which will be the most

549
00:39:15,000 –> 00:39:19,000
effective yet but to get there we have

550
00:39:19,000 –> 00:39:20,000
to try all of the different options —

551
00:39:20,000 –> 00:39:22,000
weaker,

552
00:39:22,000 –> 00:39:26,000
RNA, etc.

553
00:39:26,000 –> 00:39:29,000
We have to see how it affects the body.

554
00:39:29,000 –> 00:39:31,000
I’ll show you a couple diif kinds and

555
00:39:31,000 –> 00:39:40,000
touch on those.

556
00:39:40,000 –> 00:39:45,000
With DNA and RNA,

557
00:39:45,000 –> 00:39:47,000
what you’ll see with Pfizer and

558
00:39:47,000 –> 00:39:53,000
Moderna is this method here.

559
00:39:53,000 –> 00:39:56,000
Yes it’s a new method,

560
00:39:56,000 –> 00:40:00,000
but it’s been used in the past for

561
00:40:00,000 –> 00:40:06,000
some clinical trials.

562
00:40:06,000 –> 00:40:09,000
Now they’ve applied it to this

563
00:40:09,000 –> 00:40:20,000
vaccine and it’s been successful so far.

564
00:40:20,000 –> 00:40:21,000
They use weak viruses to build up

565
00:40:21,000 –> 00:40:27,000
disesases like MMR,

566
00:40:27,000 –> 00:40:30,000
measles mumps rubella and chicken pox.

567
00:40:30,000 –> 00:40:35,000
Or dead viruses,

568
00:40:35,000 –> 00:40:36,000
like Polio that is now gone and isn’t

569
00:40:36,000 –> 00:40:38,000
affecting the world.

570
00:40:38,000 –> 00:40:42,000
Some parts of the virus,

571
00:40:42,000 –> 00:40:50,000
the protein substance

572
00:40:50,000 –> 00:40:52,000
, like Hep B,

573
00:40:52,000 –> 00:40:53,000
coughing,

574
00:40:53,000 –> 00:41:06,000
HPV,

575
00:41:06,000 –> 00:41:08,000
other viruses or viral infections like

576
00:41:08,000 –> 00:41:11,000
Ebola is still out there.

577
00:41:11,000 –> 00:41:15,000
And there are different kind of

578
00:41:15,000 –> 00:41:20,000
infections going on in the world right now.

579
00:41:20,000 –> 00:41:24,000
So I’ll give you.

580
00:41:24,000 –> 00:41:28,000
a picture of where things are.

581
00:41:28,000 –> 00:41:30,000
They seem to be more focused on RNA,

582
00:41:30,000 –> 00:41:31,000
DNA,

583
00:41:31,000 –> 00:41:37,000
and the vector.

584
00:41:37,000 –> 00:41:39,000
Some are in the pre-clinical

585
00:41:39,000 –> 00:41:44,000
stages,

586
00:41:44,000 –> 00:41:46,000
or some are in or done with clinical trials

587
00:41:46,000 –> 00:41:51,000
.

588
00:41:51,000 –> 00:41:58,000
This picture I took from the WHO,

589
00:41:58,000 –> 00:42:03,000
World Health Organization.

590
00:42:03,000 –> 00:42:06,000
About 173 vaccines are in clinical trials,

591
00:42:06,000 –> 00:42:11,000
and 63 are in development.

592
00:42:11,000 –> 00:42:12,000
It’s very hard to find out to treat.

593
00:42:12,000 –> 00:42:14,000
The virus right now.

594
00:42:14,000 –> 00:42:19,000
It’s very difficult.

595
00:42:19,000 –> 00:42:23,000
Now we’re focused on America.

596
00:42:23,000 –> 00:42:26,000
There are 2 American vaccines right now,

597
00:42:26,000 –> 00:42:28,000
Pfizer and Moderna,

598
00:42:28,000 –> 00:42:31,000
for COVID-19.

599
00:42:31,000 –> 00:42:40,000
I’ll show you how they’re different.

600
00:42:40,000 –> 00:42:41,000
Pfizer must be stored -20 degrees celcius,

601
00:42:41,000 –> 00:42:48,000
frozen.

602
00:42:48,000 –> 00:42:52,000
**Correction 70 degrees celcius,

603
00:42:52,000 –> 00:43:00,000
which is colder than Antarctica.

604
00:43:00,000 –> 00:43:06,000
Moderna is in -20 degrees Celsius and

605
00:43:06,000 –> 00:43:10,000
can stay there for up to 6 months.

606
00:43:10,000 –> 00:43:13,000
So maybe a big hospital has a freezer

607
00:43:13,000 –> 00:43:15,000
where they could store it —

608
00:43:15,000 –> 00:43:17,000
like Pfizer —

609
00:43:17,000 –> 00:43:22,000
in a rural area or hospital.

610
00:43:22,000 –> 00:43:24,000
Maybe there’s not clinics with that

611
00:43:24,000 –> 00:43:28,000
special equipment.

612
00:43:28,000 –> 00:43:30,000
Then they might want to get Moderna.

613
00:43:30,000 –> 00:43:33,000
So there are different reasons,

614
00:43:33,000 –> 00:43:35,000
things that affect this.

615
00:43:35,000 –> 00:43:38,000
Money is also a factor,

616
00:43:38,000 –> 00:43:43,000
as well as temperature.

617
00:43:43,000 –> 00:43:57,000
Moderna and Pfizer use the RNA method.

618
00:43:57,000 –> 00:44:06,000
Moderna and Pfizer use the RNA method.

619
00:44:06,000 –> 00:44:07,000
The Oxford AstraZenca is not yet

620
00:44:07,000 –> 00:44:11,000
approved in America.

621
00:44:11,000 –> 00:44:17,000
It’s still in the process of being

622
00:44:17,000 –> 00:44:20,000
developed and approved here in America

623
00:44:20,000 –> 00:44:28,000
for use.

624
00:44:28,000 –> 00:44:36,000
Pfizer is on 16+ and Moderna is 18+ —

625
00:44:36,000 –> 00:44:38,000
different ages they were used on in

626
00:44:38,000 –> 00:44:41,000
the clinical trials that were successful.

627
00:44:41,000 –> 00:44:44,000
This picture is from the clinical trials.

628
00:44:44,000 –> 00:44:46,000
You’d compare the control group and

629
00:44:46,000 –> 00:44:49,000
the placebo group.

630
00:44:49,000 –> 00:44:51,000
The people who got the vaccine and

631
00:44:51,000 –> 00:44:52,000
those who didn’t.

632
00:44:52,000 –> 00:44:55,000
People who got the vaccine,

633
00:44:55,000 –> 00:45:00,000
after 10 days,

634
00:45:00,000 –> 00:45:04,000
incredibly there were no symptoms

635
00:45:04,000 –> 00:45:07,000
whatsoever and it just flattened.

636
00:45:07,000 –> 00:45:08,000
The placebo control group,

637
00:45:08,000 –> 00:45:10,000
got sick,

638
00:45:10,000 –> 00:45:12,000
had symptoms.

639
00:45:12,000 –> 00:45:16,000
Same

640
00:45:16,000 –> 00:45:20,000
for both Moderna and Pfizer vaccines.

641
00:45:20,000 –> 00:45:22,000
That’s showing that the vaccines have

642
00:45:22,000 –> 00:45:31,000
been effective.

643
00:45:31,000 –> 00:45:32,000
You can see how Moderna and Pfizer

644
00:45:32,000 –> 00:45:39,000
vaccine

645
00:45:39,000 –> 00:45:42,000
es compare to other diseases like polio,

646
00:45:42,000 –> 00:45:48,000
chikenpox.

647
00:45:48,000 –> 00:45:52,000
95% effective you can see

648
00:45:52,000 –> 00:45:54,000
For the Coronavirus vaccine,

649
00:45:54,000 –> 00:45:56,000
is this going to be a cure?

650
00:45:56,000 –> 00:46:01,000
No,

651
00:46:01,000 –> 00:46:04,000
there are no cures for viruses.

652
00:46:04,000 –> 00:46:09,000
If I got the vaccine and then

653
00:46:09,000 –> 00:46:12,000

654
00:46:12,000 –> 00:46:15,000
correction: you cannot get the vaccine

655
00:46:15,000 –> 00:46:24,000
and then be sick with Coronavirus.

656
00:46:24,000 –> 00:46:27,000
They weren’t using weak or dead

657
00:46:27,000 –> 00:46:29,000
viruses here in America.

658
00:46:29,000 –> 00:46:31,000
Other counters were,

659
00:46:31,000 –> 00:46:32,000
but not here.

660
00:46:32,000 –> 00:46:37,000
RNA and DNA only.

661
00:46:37,000 –> 00:46:40,000
You might be wondering why there are

662
00:46:40,000 –> 00:46:46,000
different kind of vaccines.

663
00:46:46,000 –> 00:46:48,000
Some groups of people can not handle

664
00:46:48,000 –> 00:46:54,000
certain kind of vaccines,

665
00:46:54,000 –> 00:46:55,000
some parts of the country don’t have

666
00:46:55,000 –> 00:46:57,000
the equipment,

667
00:46:57,000 –> 00:47:06,000
freezers.

668
00:47:06,000 –> 00:47:09,000
Some people can tolerate specific vaccines.

669
00:47:09,000 –> 00:47:11,000
You could be allergic to one vaccine

670
00:47:11,000 –> 00:47:16,000
and not another,

671
00:47:16,000 –> 00:47:19,000
you might be immunocompromised.

672
00:47:19,000 –> 00:47:24,000
People ask how long

673
00:47:24,000 –> 00:47:27,000
antibodies stay in your body.

674
00:47:27,000 –> 00:47:31,000
It looks like 1-2 years but it’s

675
00:47:31,000 –> 00:47:33,000
still being researched considering the

676
00:47:33,000 –> 00:47:35,000
virus is very new.

677
00:47:35,000 –> 00:47:39,000
I’ll hand it over to Jason,

678
00:47:39,000 –> 00:47:41,000
who will talk about what to do after

679
00:47:41,000 –> 00:47:43,000
the vaccine.

680
00:47:43,000 –> 00:47:55,000
JR?

681
00:47:55,000 –> 00:47:57,000
>>JASON: Okay,

682
00:47:57,000 –> 00:48:00,000
if you were to get a vaccine —

683
00:48:00,000 –> 00:48:01,000
can you take masks off?

684
00:48:01,000 –> 00:48:05,000
Not the case.

685
00:48:05,000 –> 00:48:13,000
As you just saw it is 95%

686
00:48:13,000 –> 00:48:17,000
effective and it is a serious virus.

687
00:48:17,000 –> 00:48:19,000
There’s still a small chance you can

688
00:48:19,000 –> 00:48:22,000
get it.

689
00:48:22,000 –> 00:48:24,000
There’s still some research showing

690
00:48:24,000 –> 00:48:28,000
it can still live in your nose.

691
00:48:28,000 –> 00:48:34,000
It could get stuck in your nose,

692
00:48:34,000 –> 00:48:37,000
and you can expose another person.

693
00:48:37,000 –> 00:48:39,000
So it can be spread even after you

694
00:48:39,000 –> 00:48:40,000
get the vaccine.

695
00:48:40,000 –> 00:48:51,000
Also herd immunity,

696
00:48:51,000 –> 00:48:57,000
it takes time before all of that can happen.

697
00:48:57,000 –> 00:48:59,000
Now I’ll turn it over to IV.

698
00:48:59,000 –> 00:49:04,000
>>CARL:

699
00:49:04,000 –> 00:49:06,000
You might be wondering who should be

700
00:49:06,000 –> 00:49:10,000
getting the vaccine.

701
00:49:10,000 –> 00:49:12,000
If you got the first one and were allergic,

702
00:49:12,000 –> 00:49:14,000
developed a rash,

703
00:49:14,000 –> 00:49:18,000
big red areas,

704
00:49:18,000 –> 00:49:24,000
it caused breathing issues,

705
00:49:24,000 –> 00:49:27,000
or something happened after the 1st vaccination,

706
00:49:27,000 –> 00:49:31,000
it means you shouldn’t get the second.

707
00:49:31,000 –> 00:49:33,000
Pfizer and Moderna hasn’t been

708
00:49:33,000 –> 00:49:38,000
researched on children just yet,

709
00:49:38,000 –> 00:49:39,000
so they’re not giving children the

710
00:49:39,000 –> 00:49:40,000
vaccination yet.

711
00:49:40,000 –> 00:49:48,000
It’s on hold.

712
00:49:48,000 –> 00:49:53,000
Also if you’re allergic to shellfish,

713
00:49:53,000 –> 00:49:55,000
someone asked if you were allergic if

714
00:49:55,000 –> 00:49:57,000
you shouldn’t get the vaccine?

715
00:49:57,000 –> 00:50:00,000
No.

716
00:50:00,000 –> 00:50:05,000
It’s different with covid19.

717
00:50:05,000 –> 00:50:07,000
With the flu shot if you have an egg

718
00:50:07,000 –> 00:50:10,000
allergy you can’t get that.

719
00:50:10,000 –> 00:50:14,000
But in some of the COVID-19 research,

720
00:50:14,000 –> 00:50:16,000
it did say you might have a mild

721
00:50:16,000 –> 00:50:18,000
allergic reaction,

722
00:50:18,000 –> 00:50:22,000
maybe red or rash.

723
00:50:22,000 –> 00:50:23,000
But millions of people are getting

724
00:50:23,000 –> 00:50:28,000
the vaccine.

725
00:50:28,000 –> 00:50:32,000
And there have only been a few

726
00:50:32,000 –> 00:50:33,000
reports of serious allergic reactions.

727
00:50:33,000 –> 00:50:37,000
That’s all right.

728
00:50:37,000 –> 00:50:40,000
We have good medicine and technology

729
00:50:40,000 –> 00:50:44,000
to reduce that allergic reaction.

730
00:50:44,000 –> 00:50:47,000
So that’s not something to worry about.

731
00:50:47,000 –> 00:50:51,000
Not waiting the vaccine because you

732
00:50:51,000 –> 00:50:57,000
have allergies but you want to be

733
00:50:57,000 –> 00:50:58,000
mindful of a possible reaction after

734
00:50:58,000 –> 00:50:59,000
the vaccine.

735
00:50:59,000 –> 00:51:03,000
If you don’t have that,

736
00:51:03,000 –> 00:51:10,000
then go ahead with the second vaccine.

737
00:51:10,000 –> 00:51:14,000
>>JASON: The clinic set up a bad reaction.

738
00:51:14,000 –> 00:51:15,000
You wait 15-30 minutes after having

739
00:51:15,000 –> 00:51:16,000
the vaccine.

740
00:51:16,000 –> 00:51:27,000
If nothing happens,

741
00:51:27,000 –> 00:51:31,000
**j clinic has a plan to react to bad reactions.

742
00:51:31,000 –> 00:51:34,000
It’s so that you sit for 15-30

743
00:51:34,000 –> 00:51:35,000
minutes and then if nothing happens

744
00:51:35,000 –> 00:51:39,000
during that time you’re okay to leave.

745
00:51:39,000 –> 00:51:44,000
Now I want to talk about the vaccine.

746
00:51:44,000 –> 00:51:45,000
There are some common side effects

747
00:51:45,000 –> 00:51:48,000
from them.

748
00:51:48,000 –> 00:51:50,000
I do just want to warn you: you

749
00:51:50,000 –> 00:51:56,000
cannot get Coronavirus from the vaccine.

750
00:51:56,000 –> 00:51:58,000
Your body’s response when it’s trying

751
00:51:58,000 –> 00:52:00,000
to make the antibodies can cause some

752
00:52:00,000 –> 00:52:05,000
of these things.

753
00:52:05,000 –> 00:52:10,000
Fatigue is one of them.

754
00:52:10,000 –> 00:52:12,000
One of the most common side effects.

755
00:52:12,000 –> 00:52:22,000
Some pain and side

756
00:52:22,000 –> 00:52:28,000
. You can get a fever,

757
00:52:28,000 –> 00:52:35,000
usually that will go away within 24-36 hours.

758
00:52:35,000 –> 00:52:40,000
Those side effects will go away.

759
00:52:40,000 –> 00:52:43,000
>>CARL: I did get the first vaccine.

760
00:52:43,000 –> 00:52:45,000
My personal experience: I got a

761
00:52:45,000 –> 00:52:49,000
headache a little bit later.

762
00:52:49,000 –> 00:52:50,000
It happened and I took some Tylenol,

763
00:52:50,000 –> 00:52:52,000
ibuprofen,

764
00:52:52,000 –> 00:52:54,000
and it went way.

765
00:52:54,000 –> 00:52:58,000
But let me tell you,

766
00:52:58,000 –> 00:53:01,000
where they gave me the vaccine,

767
00:53:01,000 –> 00:53:05,000
that arm was very sore.

768
00:53:05,000 –> 00:53:08,000
I’d turn on it overnight and it’d

769
00:53:08,000 –> 00:53:12,000
wake me up but really that was it.

770
00:53:12,000 –> 00:53:14,000
And it went away after a day or 2.

771
00:53:14,000 –> 00:53:18,000
JR, you?

772
00:53:18,000 –> 00:53:23,000
>>JASON: Mine was a little bit different.

773
00:53:23,000 –> 00:53:25,000
I didn’t feel any side effects or symptoms.

774
00:53:25,000 –> 00:53:29,000
No soreness.

775
00:53:29,000 –> 00:53:38,000
But compared to the flu shot,

776
00:53:38,000 –> 00:53:41,000
I got more pain at the site of

777
00:53:41,000 –> 00:53:46,000
injection than I did with the

778
00:53:46,000 –> 00:53:52,000
COVID-19 vaccination.

779
00:53:52,000 –> 00:53:59,000
>>CARL: How are we treating COVID-19?

780
00:53:59,000 –> 00:54:06,000
I do want to remind you there’s no cure.

781
00:54:06,000 –> 00:54:08,000
But if a patient is admitted to the

782
00:54:08,000 –> 00:54:15,000
hospital there are some options.

783
00:54:15,000 –> 00:54:18,000
There is a medicine called Remdesivir

784
00:54:18,000 –> 00:54:22,000
that could help a little bit.

785
00:54:22,000 –> 00:54:24,000
But the data and research for it is okay.

786
00:54:24,000 –> 00:54:27,000
It’s worth getting to help a little

787
00:54:27,000 –> 00:54:30,000
bit when admitted to the hospital.

788
00:54:30,000 –> 00:54:32,000
If you’re admitted to the hospital

789
00:54:32,000 –> 00:54:34,000
and you need oxygen they’ll give you that.

790
00:54:34,000 –> 00:54:45,000
Also,

791
00:54:45,000 –> 00:54:49,000
there’s the convalescent therapy/treatment.

792
00:54:49,000 –> 00:54:53,000
That’s having antibodies put into

793
00:54:53,000 –> 00:54:56,000
your immune system,

794
00:54:56,000 –> 00:54:58,000
like a transfusion,

795
00:54:58,000 –> 00:55:04,000
to help fight

796
00:55:04,000 –> 00:55:05,000
. Taken from another person’s body,

797
00:55:05,000 –> 00:55:08,000
their plasma,

798
00:55:08,000 –> 00:55:11,000
you’re more likely to have side

799
00:55:11,000 –> 00:55:15,000
effects or allergic reactions.

800
00:55:15,000 –> 00:55:19,000
But if it’s a serious infection they may.

801
00:55:19,000 –> 00:55:22,000
They may also give you steroids to

802
00:55:22,000 –> 00:55:30,000
help your inflammation and breathing.

803
00:55:30,000 –> 00:55:32,000
It seems to only be used in serious infection,

804
00:55:32,000 –> 00:55:42,000
not basic mild cases.

805
00:55:42,000 –> 00:55:46,000
>>JASON: I also want to add 3 medicines.

806
00:55:46,000 –> 00:55:49,000
They’re not giving those out to

807
00:55:49,000 –> 00:55:53,000
everybody and they’re not proven to

808
00:55:53,000 –> 00:55:55,000
help but some evidence shows it can

809
00:55:55,000 –> 00:56:00,000
alleviate it in a couple days,

810
00:56:00,000 –> 00:56:01,000
lessen the number of days you’re in

811
00:56:01,000 –> 00:56:05,000
the hospital.

812
00:56:05,000 –> 00:56:08,000
But it’s really given to those in need.

813
00:56:08,000 –> 00:56:12,000
It’s not over the counter medicine,

814
00:56:12,000 –> 00:56:15,000
where it’s available in mass.

815
00:56:15,000 –> 00:56:17,000
We’re trying to save it for the

816
00:56:17,000 –> 00:56:25,000
people who are infected seriously.

817
00:56:25,000 –> 00:56:26,000
>>SHAZIA: Okay,

818
00:56:26,000 –> 00:56:29,000
now,

819
00:56:29,000 –> 00:56:33,000
what’s next with the vaccine distribution.

820
00:56:33,000 –> 00:56:35,000
It depends on each state.

821
00:56:35,000 –> 00:56:37,000
Now with the new president,

822
00:56:37,000 –> 00:56:42,000
as of yesterday,

823
00:56:42,000 –> 00:56:44,000
he’s trying for 1 million vaccinations

824
00:56:44,000 –> 00:56:49,000
within the first 100 days.

825
00:56:49,000 –> 00:56:50,000
So he’s been reaching out to people

826
00:56:50,000 –> 00:56:55,000
to get that.

827
00:56:55,000 –> 00:56:57,000
There’s a lot of factors that come in

828
00:56:57,000 –> 00:56:59,000
with this vaccination —

829
00:56:59,000 –> 00:57:01,000
money issues,

830
00:57:01,000 –> 00:57:02,000
roll of the state,

831
00:57:02,000 –> 00:57:03,000
communication,

832
00:57:03,000 –> 00:57:11,000
trust.

833
00:57:11,000 –> 00:57:16,000
Some people are scared to get the vaccine.

834
00:57:16,000 –> 00:57:20,000
There is a lot of racial inequities,

835
00:57:20,000 –> 00:57:25,000
disprtises.

836
00:57:25,000 –> 00:57:27,000
How do we get to those groups of people?

837
00:57:27,000 –> 00:57:32,000
Do we have enough supplies?

838
00:57:32,000 –> 00:57:33,000
How do we transport it to all the states?

839
00:57:33,000 –> 00:57:36,000
The cost,

840
00:57:36,000 –> 00:57:37,000
it really should be free.

841
00:57:37,000 –> 00:57:40,000
Hopefully.

842
00:57:40,000 –> 00:57:42,000
But there are many factors that go

843
00:57:42,000 –> 00:57:50,000
into the vaccine distribution.

844
00:57:50,000 –> 00:57:57,000
The world goal is 2 billion people to

845
00:57:57,000 –> 00:58:00,000
be vaccinated by end of year 2021.

846
00:58:00,000 –> 00:58:17,000
That’s the goal they’re trying to achieve.

847
00:58:17,000 –> 00:58:22,000
FDA approval was for both the Pfizer

848
00:58:22,000 –> 00:58:24,000
and Moderna vaccination before distributed.

849
00:58:24,000 –> 00:58:26,000
There’s another question asking about

850
00:58:26,000 –> 00:58:34,000
blood type.

851
00:58:34,000 –> 00:58:38,000
Does it affect you if you get COVID-19.

852
00:58:38,000 –> 00:58:43,000
Some of that information isn’t proven yet.

853
00:58:43,000 –> 00:58:44,000
More research still needs to be done.

854
00:58:44,000 –> 00:58:52,000
As of right now,

855
00:58:52,000 –> 00:58:55,000
blood type isn’t a factor in who gets COVID-19.

856
00:58:55,000 –> 00:58:57,000
Some viruses you see,

857
00:58:57,000 –> 00:58:58,000
starting in England,

858
00:58:58,000 –> 00:59:01,000
spreading,

859
00:59:01,000 –> 00:59:04,000
you might have variations.

860
00:59:04,000 –> 00:59:07,000
The question is will the vaccination

861
00:59:07,000 –> 00:59:08,000
prevent the variants?

862
00:59:08,000 –> 00:59:09,000
For now,

863
00:59:09,000 –> 00:59:13,000
yes.

864
00:59:13,000 –> 00:59:16,000
It’ll help prevent infections.

865
00:59:16,000 –> 00:59:22,000
But it’s always possible the virus

866
00:59:22,000 –> 00:59:26,000
can change a little bit and our immune

867
00:59:26,000 –> 00:59:30,000
system could miss or the vaccine

868
00:59:30,000 –> 00:59:33,000
doesn’t cover it.

869
00:59:33,000 –> 00:59:36,000
However,

870
00:59:36,000 –> 00:59:43,000
JR and Shazia can cover that.

871
00:59:43,000 –> 00:59:48,000
>>SHAZIA: The Pfizer vaccine did get approved,

872
00:59:48,000 –> 00:59:50,000
through the emergency use

873
00:59:50,000 –> 00:59:55,000
authorization through FDA.

874
00:59:55,000 –> 00:59:56,000
Pfizer was first week of December,

875
00:59:56,000 –> 00:59:57,000
approved.

876
00:59:57,000 –> 01:00:02,000
Then

877
01:00:02,000 –> 01:00:05,000
Moderna later in January.

878
01:00:05,000 –> 01:00:07,000
Both now are available for

879
01:00:07,000 –> 01:00:09,000
distribution in America.

880
01:00:09,000 –> 01:00:10,000
Remember I mentioned the clinical

881
01:00:10,000 –> 01:00:15,000
trials

882
01:00:15,000 –> 01:00:21,000
had 95% effectiveness?

883
01:00:21,000 –> 01:00:23,000
It was such a high number they fast

884
01:00:23,000 –> 01:00:29,000
tracked the EUA

885
01:00:29,000 –> 01:00:31,000
because it had already shown to be

886
01:00:31,000 –> 01:00:35,000
that effective.

887
01:00:35,000 –> 01:00:39,000
>>JASON: Also the trial itself was

888
01:00:39,000 –> 01:00:42,000
much faster than other vaccination trials.

889
01:00:42,000 –> 01:00:43,000
There are a couple different reasons

890
01:00:43,000 –> 01:00:48,000
for that. First,

891
01:00:48,000 –> 01:00:51,000
trials usually need volunteers.

892
01:00:51,000 –> 01:00:55,000
There were many thousands.

893
01:00:55,000 –> 01:00:56,000
I think over 30,000 volunteers in

894
01:00:56,000 –> 01:01:00,000
less than 2-3 months.

895
01:01:00,000 –> 01:01:03,000
Most of the time it takes almost a

896
01:01:03,000 –> 01:01:05,000
year before you have enough volunteers

897
01:01:05,000 –> 01:01:09,000
for vaccination trials

898
01:01:09,000 –> 01:01:10,000
Second reason,

899
01:01:10,000 –> 01:01:12,000
for example,

900
01:01:12,000 –> 01:01:18,000
was the flu vaccine.

901
01:01:18,000 –> 01:01:21,000
Sometimes they test on animals before humans.

902
01:01:21,000 –> 01:01:23,000
That’s because of things like allergies,

903
01:01:23,000 –> 01:01:24,000
egg allergies,

904
01:01:24,000 –> 01:01:31,000
etc.

905
01:01:31,000 –> 01:01:33,000
Using vaccines using dead viruses,

906
01:01:33,000 –> 01:01:36,000
they have to test first.

907
01:01:36,000 –> 01:01:38,000
And if it’s not effective.

908
01:01:38,000 –> 01:01:41,000
They have to be very safe.

909
01:01:41,000 –> 01:01:44,000
These are very different vaccines

910
01:01:44,000 –> 01:01:47,000
because the MRA is in the vaccine.

911
01:01:47,000 –> 01:01:49,000
It’s put in the person and then the

912
01:01:49,000 –> 01:01:53,000
person makes it.

913
01:01:53,000 –> 01:01:57,000
The person already has the things in

914
01:01:57,000 –> 01:01:59,000
their body for the vaccination to be successful.

915
01:01:59,000 –> 01:02:02,000
So it’s a different kind of vaccine.

916
01:02:02,000 –> 01:02:04,000
>>SHAZIA: Yes,

917
01:02:04,000 –> 01:02:08,000
like just mentioned,

918
01:02:08,000 –> 01:02:14,000
Pfizer had about 30,000 people

919
01:02:14,000 –> 01:02:19,000
. I think Moderna about 36,000 people.

920
01:02:19,000 –> 01:02:20,000
I mean it really just fast tracked

921
01:02:20,000 –> 01:02:24,000
from there.

922
01:02:24,000 –> 01:02:28,000
Amazing response.

923
01:02:28,000 –> 01:02:31,000
The world has spent almost $18

924
01:02:31,000 –> 01:02:42,000
billion on vaccine research for this.

925
01:02:42,000 –> 01:02:43,000
This picture shows how much was involved in

926
01:02:43,000 –> 01:02:47,000
the vaccine development,

927
01:02:47,000 –> 01:02:52,000
making sure there was a distribution plan,

928
01:02:52,000 –> 01:02:55,000
transportation plans came into issues (Fedex,

929
01:02:55,000 –> 01:02:57,000
UPS)

930
01:02:57,000 –> 01:03:04,000
and cold storage.

931
01:03:04,000 –> 01:03:06,000
A lot of networking and partner ships

932
01:03:06,000 –> 01:03:10,000
for people to work together.

933
01:03:10,000 –> 01:03:12,000
I mean really the whole world is

934
01:03:12,000 –> 01:03:14,000
working together on this at this point.

935
01:03:14,000 –> 01:03:18,000
Who should get the vaccine?

936
01:03:18,000 –> 01:03:22,000
On December 20th,

937
01:03:22,000 –> 01:03:26,000
the CDC updated guidelines.

938
01:03:26,000 –> 01:03:27,000
Phase 1 there’s a break down of A,

939
01:03:27,000 –> 01:03:28,000
B,

940
01:03:28,000 –> 01:03:32,000
C.

941
01:03:32,000 –> 01:03:36,000
That’s front line health workrrs,

942
01:03:36,000 –> 01:03:41,000
long term care residents.

943
01:03:41,000 –> 01:03:44,000
Phase be is essential frontline works,

944
01:03:44,000 –> 01:03:45,000
75 years and older.

945
01:03:45,000 –> 01:03:49,000
1C–

946
01:03:49,000 –> 01:03:51,000
they keep adding other populations of

947
01:03:51,000 –> 01:03:55,000
groups now eligible.

948
01:03:55,000 –> 01:03:57,000
I think New York is currently on 1B.

949
01:03:57,000 –> 01:03:59,000
Correct guys?

950
01:03:59,000 –> 01:04:06,000
[They say yes.]

951
01:04:06,000 –> 01:04:10,000
Once phase 2 is enacted everyone over

952
01:04:10,000 –> 01:04:12,000
16 can be vaccinated.

953
01:04:12,000 –> 01:04:15,000
Different states have different levels,

954
01:04:15,000 –> 01:04:20,000
but most are currently at 1b.

955
01:04:20,000 –> 01:04:22,000
And today with the new president,

956
01:04:22,000 –> 01:04:29,000
Biden,

957
01:04:29,000 –> 01:04:33,000
signed an order to streamline the

958
01:04:33,000 –> 01:04:34,000
vaccination distribution process so

959
01:04:34,000 –> 01:04:36,000
more people can

960
01:04:36,000 –> 01:04:39,000
be

961
01:04:39,000 –> 01:04:42,000
given it.

962
01:04:42,000 –> 01:04:44,000
When will we go back to normal?

963
01:04:44,000 –> 01:04:47,000
I don’t know.

964
01:04:47,000 –> 01:04:49,000
We’re on Coronavirus’s timeline!

965
01:04:49,000 –> 01:04:53,000
It depends.

966
01:04:53,000 –> 01:04:54,000
I wish I could answer that.

967
01:04:54,000 –> 01:04:57,000
Any more questions?

968
01:04:57,000 –> 01:04:58,000
I’ll turn off the PowerPoint now.

969
01:04:58,000 –> 01:05:03,000
/

970
01:05:03,000 –> 01:05:06,000
>>CARL: Some people have asked

971
01:05:06,000 –> 01:05:10,000
questions about the vaccination.

972
01:05:10,000 –> 01:05:14,000
Does the vaccination have a microchip in it?

973
01:05:14,000 –> 01:05:20,000
No it does not.

974
01:05:20,000 –> 01:05:23,000
I wouldn’t even think people know how

975
01:05:23,000 –> 01:05:24,000
to put a microchip in a vaccine.

976
01:05:24,000 –> 01:05:26,000
It is safe.

977
01:05:26,000 –> 01:05:30,000
I do know there are a lot of people

978
01:05:30,000 –> 01:05:33,000
who have their doubts and are nervous.

979
01:05:33,000 –> 01:05:38,000
That’s completely understandable.

980
01:05:38,000 –> 01:05:45,000
Vaccines are personal decisions but at the same

981
01:05:45,000 –> 01:05:46,000
time we have social responsibility to help

982
01:05:46,000 –> 01:05:49,000
other people.

983
01:05:49,000 –> 01:05:53,000
The reason I got the vaccine is I

984
01:05:53,000 –> 01:05:54,000
want to protect my patients from

985
01:05:54,000 –> 01:05:59,000
getting sick.

986
01:05:59,000 –> 01:06:02,000
I don’t want to get the virus and not

987
01:06:02,000 –> 01:06:04,000
notice any symptoms but then spread it

988
01:06:04,000 –> 01:06:07,000
to them and in the hospital.

989
01:06:07,000 –> 01:06:13,000
So yes I got the vaccine to protect

990
01:06:13,000 –> 01:06:14,000
myself but a lot in part to protect my

991
01:06:14,000 –> 01:06:21,000
family and patients.

992
01:06:21,000 –> 01:06:26,000
People over 55 or with pre-existing

993
01:06:26,000 –> 01:06:29,000
health conditions get this to protect themselves.

994
01:06:29,000 –> 01:06:31,000
I think once you understand how

995
01:06:31,000 –> 01:06:37,000
vaccines work,

996
01:06:37,000 –> 01:06:41,000
it kind of removes some of the fear of them.

997
01:06:41,000 –> 01:06:42,000
A good analogy is kind of like cops

998
01:06:42,000 –> 01:06:45,000
and robbers.

999
01:06:45,000 –> 01:06:46,000
Cops are looking for the robbers.

1000
01:06:46,000 –> 01:06:48,000
How?

1001
01:06:48,000 –> 01:06:49,000
They take a picture,

1002
01:06:49,000 –> 01:06:51,000
mugshot,

1003
01:06:51,000 –> 01:06:55,000
do fingerprints.

1004
01:06:55,000 –> 01:06:56,000
Then pass those around to the

1005
01:06:56,000 –> 01:07:00,000
different police departments,

1006
01:07:00,000 –> 01:07:05,000
put up bulletins and let everyone in

1007
01:07:05,000 –> 01:07:09,000
the different offcices know what the

1008
01:07:09,000 –> 01:07:11,000
guy looks like and what they’re looking for.

1009
01:07:11,000 –> 01:07:15,000
Maybe time goes by,

1010
01:07:15,000 –> 01:07:19,000
the robber pops back up,

1011
01:07:19,000 –> 01:07:21,000
and they recognize him so work

1012
01:07:21,000 –> 01:07:25,000
together to catch him.

1013
01:07:25,000 –> 01:07:28,000
It’s almost the same when you get the vaccine.

1014
01:07:28,000 –> 01:07:30,000
It’s a mugshot of COVID-19.

1015
01:07:30,000 –> 01:07:32,000
It’s put inside you,

1016
01:07:32,000 –> 01:07:34,000
a mug shot,

1017
01:07:34,000 –> 01:07:36,000
and your immune system is like,

1018
01:07:36,000 –> 01:07:38,000
“Oh,

1019
01:07:38,000 –> 01:07:40,000
this is what COVID-19 looks like.

1020
01:07:40,000 –> 01:07:42,000
Here’s your picture.”

1021
01:07:42,000 –> 01:07:43,000
Then your immune system says,

1022
01:07:43,000 –> 01:07:46,000
oh okay.

1023
01:07:46,000 –> 01:07:49,000
It passes around the picture to all

1024
01:07:49,000 –> 01:07:56,000
the other cells in your body so when

1025
01:07:56,000 –> 01:07:59,000
the real COVID-19 infection hits you,

1026
01:07:59,000 –> 01:08:02,000
your body knows what it looks like.

1027
01:08:02,000 –> 01:08:04,000
It doesn’t even have a chance to

1028
01:08:04,000 –> 01:08:06,000
spread throughout your body.

1029
01:08:06,000 –> 01:08:13,000
That’s kind of how it works.

1030
01:08:13,000 –> 01:08:18,000
The M in MNRA stands for message.

1031
01:08:18,000 –> 01:08:19,000
The vaccine is a messenger to your

1032
01:08:19,000 –> 01:08:21,000
immune system.

1033
01:08:21,000 –> 01:08:26,000
The concept of the vaccine is old

1034
01:08:26,000 –> 01:08:28,000
technology but doing it this way has

1035
01:08:28,000 –> 01:08:31,000
been around for many years.

1036
01:08:31,000 –> 01:08:32,000
This is the best way to communicate with

1037
01:08:32,000 –> 01:08:36,000
our immune system.

1038
01:08:36,000 –> 01:08:38,000
There’s not a pill you can take the

1039
01:08:38,000 –> 01:08:40,000
reason why is your immune system lives

1040
01:08:40,000 –> 01:08:46,000
in your bloodstream.

1041
01:08:46,000 –> 01:08:48,000
There has to be a way to communicate

1042
01:08:48,000 –> 01:08:52,000
with your immune system and let your

1043
01:08:52,000 –> 01:08:55,000
body know the virus is dangerous.

1044
01:08:55,000 –> 01:08:57,000
How we get there is telling your body

1045
01:08:57,000 –> 01:09:02,000
to do it through vaccines.

1046
01:09:02,000 –> 01:09:05,000
I’ve worked in emergency rooms and clinics,

1047
01:09:05,000 –> 01:09:07,000
and when the vaccine news started

1048
01:09:07,000 –> 01:09:10,000
going around,

1049
01:09:10,000 –> 01:09:12,000
it really just made everyone feel

1050
01:09:12,000 –> 01:09:16,000
hopefully finally —

1051
01:09:16,000 –> 01:09:20,000
we could see getting closer to the

1052
01:09:20,000 –> 01:09:21,000
finish line and the end of the pandemic —

1053
01:09:21,000 –> 01:09:22,000
doctors,

1054
01:09:22,000 –> 01:09:24,000
nurses,

1055
01:09:24,000 –> 01:09:26,000
everyone.

1056
01:09:26,000 –> 01:09:29,000
I mean I can’t stress that enough.

1057
01:09:29,000 –> 01:09:30,000
Vaccines are personal.

1058
01:09:30,000 –> 01:09:33,000
I understand.

1059
01:09:33,000 –> 01:09:37,000
But science hasn’t failed us yet.

1060
01:09:37,000 –> 01:09:42,000
We’ve beaten Polio measles,

1061
01:09:42,000 –> 01:09:43,000
and a countless list of things we’ve be able

1062
01:09:43,000 –> 01:09:47,000
to overcome.

1063
01:09:47,000 –> 01:09:52,000
This is no different than anything

1064
01:09:52,000 –> 01:09:55,000
that’s come before so I really hope

1065
01:09:55,000 –> 01:09:59,000
everyone makes the decision to get the vaccine.

1066
01:09:59,000 –> 01:10:01,000
>>JASON: I see 2 other questions in

1067
01:10:01,000 –> 01:10:03,000
the chat.

1068
01:10:03,000 –> 01:10:08,000
As far as Moderna or Pfizer.

1069
01:10:08,000 –> 01:10:12,000
Some of them label at risk populations.

1070
01:10:12,000 –> 01:10:18,000
As Shazia mentioned before,

1071
01:10:18,000 –> 01:10:22,000
the population with server medical

1072
01:10:22,000 –> 01:10:24,000
Issues: chronic heart,

1073
01:10:24,000 –> 01:10:26,000
kidney,

1074
01:10:26,000 –> 01:10:29,000
lung issues —

1075
01:10:29,000 –> 01:10:32,000
any chronic medical issue —

1076
01:10:32,000 –> 01:10:35,000
meaning your body doesn’t really

1077
01:10:35,000 –> 01:10:37,000
function like a healthy person’s

1078
01:10:37,000 –> 01:10:41,000
body/organs do —

1079
01:10:41,000 –> 01:10:43,000
so your immune system doesn’t function

1080
01:10:43,000 –> 01:10:47,000
exactly the same,

1081
01:10:47,000 –> 01:10:50,000
it’s definitely more beneficial for

1082
01:10:50,000 –> 01:10:55,000
those populations to get the vaccine.

1083
01:10:55,000 –> 01:10:56,000
Another question: if you get the

1084
01:10:56,000 –> 01:10:58,000
Coronavirus vaccine,

1085
01:10:58,000 –> 01:11:02,000
can you still infect other people?

1086
01:11:02,000 –> 01:11:06,000
The answer is unfortunately yes.

1087
01:11:06,000 –> 01:11:08,000
Studies show your body can still save

1088
01:11:08,000 –> 01:11:10,000
the virus in your nose.

1089
01:11:10,000 –> 01:11:13,000
Even if you get the vaccine,

1090
01:11:13,000 –> 01:11:16,000
and the virus goes in your nose,

1091
01:11:16,000 –> 01:11:19,000
you might not get infected.

1092
01:11:19,000 –> 01:11:24,000
It only lives there a short time but

1093
01:11:24,000 –> 01:11:25,000
you go around someone who’s not been

1094
01:11:25,000 –> 01:11:28,000
vaccinated

1095
01:11:28,000 –> 01:11:32,000
you could infect them.

1096
01:11:32,000 –> 01:11:35,000
That’s why it’s very important to

1097
01:11:35,000 –> 01:11:43,000
wear your mask regardless.

1098
01:11:43,000 –> 01:11:45,000
Just as the vaccine is a social

1099
01:11:45,000 –> 01:11:48,000
responsibility the mask is.

1100
01:11:48,000 –> 01:11:50,000
It protects your loved ones,

1101
01:11:50,000 –> 01:11:55,000
family and people you care about.

1102
01:11:55,000 –> 01:11:57,000
>>SHAZIA: Which vaccine brand is better,

1103
01:11:57,000 –> 01:12:01,000
Moderna and Pfizer?

1104
01:12:01,000 –> 01:12:03,000
They’re both the same,

1105
01:12:03,000 –> 01:12:07,000
both use the same method,

1106
01:12:07,000 –> 01:12:12,000
the RNA method to make the proteins,

1107
01:12:12,000 –> 01:12:17,000
allow your immune system to develop antibodies.

1108
01:12:17,000 –> 01:12:20,000
So if the virus goes into your body

1109
01:12:20,000 –> 01:12:24,000
it’ll attack the same way.

1110
01:12:24,000 –> 01:12:25,000
Both are 95% effective.

1111
01:12:25,000 –> 01:12:27,000
So either vaccine.

1112
01:12:27,000 –> 01:12:30,000
I have a friend,

1113
01:12:30,000 –> 01:12:32,000
multiple people with different ones

1114
01:12:32,000 –> 01:12:36,000
and everyone is fine

1115
01:12:36,000 –> 01:12:37,000
A lot of good questions in here.

1116
01:12:37,000 –> 01:12:45,000
Wow.

1117
01:12:45,000 –> 01:12:51,000
>>SHAZIA:

1118
01:12:51,000 –> 01:12:52,000
Is it necessary to wipe all my food

1119
01:12:52,000 –> 01:12:57,000
down after I go shopping?

1120
01:12:57,000 –> 01:12:59,000
Research does show that if for some

1121
01:12:59,000 –> 01:13:00,000
reason someone has the virus,

1122
01:13:00,000 –> 01:13:02,000
coughs,

1123
01:13:02,000 –> 01:13:04,000
touches an item,

1124
01:13:04,000 –> 01:13:05,000
and then you touch it,

1125
01:13:05,000 –> 01:13:08,000
you could.

1126
01:13:08,000 –> 01:13:11,000
But when they touch that item,

1127
01:13:11,000 –> 01:13:15,000
if it’s no immediately touched,

1128
01:13:15,000 –> 01:13:20,000
you don’t come into contact with it —

1129
01:13:20,000 –> 01:13:22,000
1-2 days the virus won’t live on it.

1130
01:13:22,000 –> 01:13:24,000
Almost like pets —

1131
01:13:24,000 –> 01:13:25,000
dogs,

1132
01:13:25,000 –> 01:13:28,000
cats —

1133
01:13:28,000 –> 01:13:32,000
can they transmit it.

1134
01:13:32,000 –> 01:13:36,000
I guess if you’re loving on them,

1135
01:13:36,000 –> 01:13:37,000
you let them kiss you and someone pets

1136
01:13:37,000 –> 01:13:38,000
them right away

1137
01:13:38,000 –> 01:13:41,000

1138
01:13:41,000 –> 01:13:45,000
maybe if it’s direct contact.

1139
01:13:45,000 –> 01:13:50,000
But the research hasn’t shown it’s

1140
01:13:50,000 –> 01:13:54,000
transmittable from humans to pets and

1141
01:13:54,000 –> 01:14:03,000
back to humans if that makes sense.

1142
01:14:03,000 –> 01:14:07,000
Let me see if there’s any other questions here.

1143
01:14:07,000 –> 01:14:08,000
How old should children be before

1144
01:14:08,000 –> 01:14:10,000
they’re vaccinated?

1145
01:14:10,000 –> 01:14:14,000
Right now,

1146
01:14:14,000 –> 01:14:24,000
no children are getting vaccines.

1147
01:14:24,000 –> 01:14:28,000
Pfizer currently is requiring you’re 16+.

1148
01:14:28,000 –> 01:14:33,000
Moderna is requiring 18+.

1149
01:14:33,000 –> 01:14:36,000
There hasn’t been any research in children.

1150
01:14:36,000 –> 01:14:39,000
There are current clinical trials

1151
01:14:39,000 –> 01:14:47,000
being conducted but no results yet.

1152
01:14:47,000 –> 01:14:52,000
>>JASON: I have a question from Deborah.

1153
01:14:52,000 –> 01:14:53,000
Antibodies: how long will your body

1154
01:14:53,000 –> 01:14:56,000
remember these?

1155
01:14:56,000 –> 01:14:59,000
It really depends.

1156
01:14:59,000 –> 01:15:02,000
If you get Coronavirus,

1157
01:15:02,000 –> 01:15:07,000
maybe you have a very mild case,

1158
01:15:07,000 –> 01:15:11,000
a light cough or your body just makes a

1159
01:15:11,000 –> 01:15:16,000
small amount of antibodies,

1160
01:15:16,000 –> 01:15:21,000
maybe 2-3 weeks.

1161
01:15:21,000 –> 01:15:23,000
A more severe case,

1162
01:15:23,000 –> 01:15:25,000
you go to the hospital,

1163
01:15:25,000 –> 01:15:29,000
etc.

1164
01:15:29,000 –> 01:15:35,000
maybe up to several months.

1165
01:15:35,000 –> 01:15:36,000
That goes back to the importance of the

1166
01:15:36,000 –> 01:15:42,000
second vaccine.

1167
01:15:42,000 –> 01:15:44,000
It tells your body we have to

1168
01:15:44,000 –> 01:15:47,000
continue making these antibodies.

1169
01:15:47,000 –> 01:15:50,000
>>SHAZIA: Also,

1170
01:15:50,000 –> 01:15:53,000
some people think that

1171
01:15:53,000 –> 01:15:57,000

1172
01:15:57,000 –> 01:15:58,000
sorry spotlight is on the wrong person

1173
01:15:58,000 –> 01:15:59,000
right now.

1174
01:15:59,000 –> 01:16:02,000
Can you spotlight me?

1175
01:16:02,000 –> 01:16:03,000
Gotcha.

1176
01:16:03,000 –> 01:16:07,000
Thank you.

1177
01:16:07,000 –> 01:16:12,000
Sometimes some people ask me about a

1178
01:16:12,000 –> 01:16:14,000
timeframe between 1st and second shot.

1179
01:16:14,000 –> 01:16:17,000
Pfizer says 2-3 weeks.

1180
01:16:17,000 –> 01:16:19,000
21 days wait,

1181
01:16:19,000 –> 01:16:24,000
then take the second shot.

1182
01:16:24,000 –> 01:16:26,000
Moderna’s is saying 28 days in between,

1183
01:16:26,000 –> 01:16:28,000
so about 4 weeks.

1184
01:16:28,000 –> 01:16:29,000
First shot,

1185
01:16:29,000 –> 01:16:31,000
then the second.

1186
01:16:31,000 –> 01:16:34,000
The reason for that —

1187
01:16:34,000 –> 01:16:38,000
it takes time for your body to build

1188
01:16:38,000 –> 01:16:41,000
an immunoresponse to the vaccine.

1189
01:16:41,000 –> 01:16:44,000
Then the second shot will build up

1190
01:16:44,000 –> 01:16:48,000
even more of your body’s A

1191
01:16:48,000 –> 01:16:53,000
antibodies.

1192
01:16:53,000 –> 01:16:56,000
>>JASON: Also the 1st shot of the

1193
01:16:56,000 –> 01:17:00,000
vaccine doesn’t guarantee you’re fine.

1194
01:17:00,000 –> 01:17:01,000
You can’t just go get the vaccine and

1195
01:17:01,000 –> 01:17:04,000
you’re fine.

1196
01:17:04,000 –> 01:17:11,000
But with the second vaccine your body

1197
01:17:11,000 –> 01:17:16,000
can achieve 95% immunity.

1198
01:17:16,000 –> 01:17:17,000
>>CARL: Also when people get sick or go

1199
01:17:17,000 –> 01:17:23,000
to the hospital,

1200
01:17:23,000 –> 01:17:26,000
one of the first things if you feel a

1201
01:17:26,000 –> 01:17:31,000
cough or fever and think you might have

1202
01:17:31,000 –> 01:17:33,000
gotten infected call the hospital or

1203
01:17:33,000 –> 01:17:36,000
testing sites close to you.

1204
01:17:36,000 –> 01:17:40,000
If you’re positive you want to stay home.

1205
01:17:40,000 –> 01:17:41,000
If you need oxygen or are having a

1206
01:17:41,000 –> 01:17:43,000
hard time breathing,

1207
01:17:43,000 –> 01:17:48,000
that’s when you go to the hospital.

1208
01:17:48,000 –> 01:17:49,000
So just because you’re positive —

1209
01:17:49,000 –> 01:17:53,000
still stay home.

1210
01:17:53,000 –> 01:17:58,000
But if your symptoms get worse,

1211
01:17:58,000 –> 01:18:00,000
then . . . you can try some medicines

1212
01:18:00,000 –> 01:18:01,000
like Tylenol,

1213
01:18:01,000 –> 01:18:04,000
etc.

1214
01:18:04,000 –> 01:18:06,000
check with your doctor to see if it

1215
01:18:06,000 –> 01:18:10,000
can help your fever.

1216
01:18:10,000 –> 01:18:12,000
But if you’re getting worrse,

1217
01:18:12,000 –> 01:18:18,000
struggling to breathe,

1218
01:18:18,000 –> 01:18:19,000
it’s possible you might need to go to

1219
01:18:19,000 –> 01:18:24,000
the hospital.

1220
01:18:24,000 –> 01:18:27,000
If your oxygen goes below 94%

1221
01:18:27,000 –> 01:18:30,000
saturation you might have to be

1222
01:18:30,000 –> 01:18:31,000
admitted to the hospital.

1223
01:18:31,000 –> 01:18:33,000
We don’t have a cure,

1224
01:18:33,000 –> 01:18:36,000
remember,

1225
01:18:36,000 –> 01:18:40,000
so the hospital is there to support

1226
01:18:40,000 –> 01:18:45,000
people who need a breathing tube or mask.

1227
01:18:45,000 –> 01:18:52,000
We hope that the virus and all begins

1228
01:18:52,000 –> 01:18:54,000
to subside and you can be removed from

1229
01:18:54,000 –> 01:18:57,000
the mask and go home.

1230
01:18:57,000 –> 01:19:00,000
If it gets even worse,

1231
01:19:00,000 –> 01:19:02,000
there are other options to support

1232
01:19:02,000 –> 01:19:04,000
your breathing in the hospital.

1233
01:19:04,000 –> 01:19:07,000
There are options.

1234
01:19:07,000 –> 01:19:08,000
But for those who don’t need oxygen,

1235
01:19:08,000 –> 01:19:13,000
they’re sent home.

1236
01:19:13,000 –> 01:19:20,000
It’s really important to remember —

1237
01:19:20,000 –> 01:19:25,000
if you have an oxygen meter at home —

1238
01:19:25,000 –> 01:19:26,000
CLARIFICATION: if you’re already on

1239
01:19:26,000 –> 01:19:32,000
oxygen and get the virus,

1240
01:19:32,000 –> 01:19:34,000
pay close attention to it and check

1241
01:19:34,000 –> 01:19:38,000
with your doctor.

1242
01:19:38,000 –> 01:19:42,000
>>SHAZIA: Will you have to get this

1243
01:19:42,000 –> 01:19:46,000
vaccine like the flu shot every year?

1244
01:19:46,000 –> 01:19:49,000
We don’t know yet.

1245
01:19:49,000 –> 01:19:50,000
We have to see how long it stays in

1246
01:19:50,000 –> 01:19:56,000
the body.

1247
01:19:56,000 –> 01:19:57,000
They’ll do more research to see what

1248
01:19:57,000 –> 01:20:01,000
happens after the first year.

1249
01:20:01,000 –> 01:20:04,000
Another question: if my first vaccine

1250
01:20:04,000 –> 01:20:06,000
was a Moderna can my second be a Pfizer?

1251
01:20:06,000 –> 01:20:09,000
No.

1252
01:20:09,000 –> 01:20:15,000
Once you get a certain brand,

1253
01:20:15,000 –> 01:20:18,000
it’s best to stay with the same company.

1254
01:20:18,000 –> 01:20:21,000
There are certain batches that match.

1255
01:20:21,000 –> 01:20:24,000
There are also different wait times.

1256
01:20:24,000 –> 01:20:26,000
So there are different methods —

1257
01:20:26,000 –> 01:20:30,000
21 days versus 28.

1258
01:20:30,000 –> 01:20:35,000
Even for future trials.

1259
01:20:35,000 –> 01:20:38,000
It’s best to stay with the same company.

1260
01:20:38,000 –> 01:20:41,000
If you get the first from Pfizer get

1261
01:20:41,000 –> 01:20:51,000
your second from Pfizer and same with Moderna.

1262
01:20:51,000 –> 01:20:55,000
>>JASON: Tylenol compared to Ibuprofen.

1263
01:20:55,000 –> 01:20:59,000
You may ask which is better?

1264
01:20:59,000 –> 01:21:01,000
Controlling Coronavirus symptoms?

1265
01:21:01,000 –> 01:21:03,000
Either are fine.

1266
01:21:03,000 –> 01:21:06,000
Both will work.

1267
01:21:06,000 –> 01:21:08,000
There’s not specific research behind

1268
01:21:08,000 –> 01:21:15,000
it but some people say

1269
01:21:15,000 –> 01:21:19,000
they have reactions to one or the other.

1270
01:21:19,000 –> 01:21:20,000
But there’s no research or trials

1271
01:21:20,000 –> 01:21:22,000
proving anything.

1272
01:21:22,000 –> 01:21:27,000
So both are safe to take.

1273
01:21:27,000 –> 01:21:28,000
Related with the vaccine after taking

1274
01:21:28,000 –> 01:21:34,000
it should you use it?

1275
01:21:34,000 –> 01:21:38,000
There’s not been much data shown after.

1276
01:21:38,000 –> 01:21:39,000
It’s possible to reduce the effectiveness

1277
01:21:39,000 –> 01:21:44,000
of the vaccine?

1278
01:21:44,000 –> 01:21:47,000
If you take it once or twice to help

1279
01:21:47,000 –> 01:21:49,000
muscle aches or fever that’s fine but

1280
01:21:49,000 –> 01:21:52,000
play it safe.

1281
01:21:52,000 –> 01:21:58,000
>>CARL: I know there are many

1282
01:21:58,000 –> 01:22:04,000
questions about the Johnson and Johnson vaccine.

1283
01:22:04,000 –> 01:22:11,000
That’s one of the other companies

1284
01:22:11,000 –> 01:22:16,000
working on a vaccine right now.

1285
01:22:16,000 –> 01:22:17,000
They will only be 1 shot but I don’t

1286
01:22:17,000 –> 01:22:22,000
think there are

1287
01:22:22,000 –> 01:22:24,000
studies released on that data yet.

1288
01:22:24,000 –> 01:22:30,000

in process.

01:23:17,000 –> 01:23:25,000
We’ll have to see.

1304
01:23:25,000 –> 01:23:29,000
>>JASON: Another person asked what RNA is.

1305
01:23:29,000 –> 01:23:33,000
RNA and DNA control how the cells

1306
01:23:33,000 –> 01:23:36,000
operate to make proteins or different

1307
01:23:36,000 –> 01:23:38,000
chemicals that control and show how to

1308
01:23:38,000 –> 01:23:51,000
make that information.

1309
01:23:51,000 –> 01:23:57,000
>>CARL: Somebody asked if I get the

1310
01:23:57,000 –> 01:24:00,000
vaccine and I wait 28 days do I have to

1311
01:24:00,000 –> 01:24:06,000
get it ON the 28th day?

1312
01:24:06,000 –> 01:24:10,000
If you have to do it a little bit afer

1313
01:24:10,000 –> 01:24:11,000
it’s okay a couple days before/after,

1314
01:24:11,000 –> 01:24:15,000
no big deal.

1315
01:24:15,000 –> 01:24:17,000
But 1-2 weeks before/after no.

1316
01:24:17,000 –> 01:24:24,000
It’s really important you get that vaccine.

1317
01:24:24,000 –> 01:24:29,000
>>JASON: Someone asked that there are

1318
01:24:29,000 –> 01:24:31,000
some people strictly not wanting to

1319
01:24:31,000 –> 01:24:32,000
wear masks.

1320
01:24:32,000 –> 01:24:36,000
People still get sick.

1321
01:24:36,000 –> 01:24:41,000
Obviously nothing’s 100%.

1322
01:24:41,000 –> 01:24:47,000
You could have the mask off for 1

1323
01:24:47,000 –> 01:24:49,000
second and get sick or other people

1324
01:24:49,000 –> 01:24:50,000
expose you to the virus.

1325
01:24:50,000 –> 01:24:57,000
Unfortunately nothing is 100%.

1326
01:24:57,000 –> 01:24:59,000
>>CARL: William asked a question:

1327
01:24:59,000 –> 01:25:03,000
Older than 75,

1328
01:25:03,000 –> 01:25:08,000
plans to get his vaccination soon.

1329
01:25:08,000 –> 01:25:09,000
His wife has to wait longer to get

1330
01:25:09,000 –> 01:25:12,000
the vaccine.

1331
01:25:12,000 –> 01:25:19,000
So

1332
01:25:19,000 –> 01:25:21,000
there is nothing different that you two

1333
01:25:21,000 –> 01:25:23,000
have to do without the vaccine.

1334
01:25:23,000 –> 01:25:24,000
Just get the vaccine.

1335
01:25:24,000 –> 01:25:28,000
Stay home.

1336
01:25:28,000 –> 01:25:32,000
But you also want to keep in the back of your

1337
01:25:32,000 –> 01:25:35,000
mind it’s not fully protective.

1338
01:25:35,000 –> 01:25:37,000
So if you get the vaccine and your

1339
01:25:37,000 –> 01:25:40,000
wife hasn’t yet,

1340
01:25:40,000 –> 01:25:45,000
it’s still possible for you to be

1341
01:25:45,000 –> 01:25:47,000
exposed to the virus and expose her to

1342
01:25:47,000 –> 01:25:51,000
it even if you don’t feel sick.

1343
01:25:51,000 –> 01:25:53,000
So still take precautions in public,

1344
01:25:53,000 –> 01:25:56,000
wash your hands,

1345
01:25:56,000 –> 01:26:00,000
wear a mask,

1346
01:26:00,000 –> 01:26:04,000
basically the same things you’ve been doing.

1347
01:26:04,000 –> 01:26:13,000
Nothing will change for you.

1348
01:26:13,000 –> 01:26:15,000
>>SHAZIA: Long term effects on your

1349
01:26:15,000 –> 01:26:17,000
body: heart issues,

1350
01:26:17,000 –> 01:26:21,000
vascular issues.

1351
01:26:21,000 –> 01:26:27,000
Many people might get it but not have

1352
01:26:27,000 –> 01:26:34,000
symptoms but what happens down the road?

1353
01:26:34,000 –> 01:26:41,000
>>CARL: LTE

1354
01:26:41,000 –> 01:26:44,000
ong term effects will happen to people

1355
01:26:44,000 –> 01:26:46,000
but we don’t know all of that

1356
01:26:46,000 –> 01:26:50,000
information yet.

1357
01:26:50,000 –> 01:26:55,000
It is rare and people do recover 100%

1358
01:26:55,000 –> 01:27:05,000
but you do notice some heart and

1359
01:27:05,000 –> 01:27:06,000
pulmonary issues caused by the

1360
01:27:06,000 –> 01:27:09,000
inflammation and

1361
01:27:09,000 –> 01:27:12,000
scarring.

1362
01:27:12,000 –> 01:27:13,000
But it depends on how sick you were or

1363
01:27:13,000 –> 01:27:17,000
not before,

1364
01:27:17,000 –> 01:27:20,000
how severe the virus was.

1365
01:27:20,000 –> 01:27:24,000
One strange thing I’ve seen published

1366
01:27:24,000 –> 01:27:27,000
in papers and reports is COVID-19 toes.

1367
01:27:27,000 –> 01:27:31,000
Again,

1368
01:27:31,000 –> 01:27:33,000
this is rare but during the infections,

1369
01:27:33,000 –> 01:27:39,000
the blood clot

1370
01:27:39,000 –> 01:27:42,000
develops and it goes to your foot.

1371
01:27:42,000 –> 01:27:48,000
So it blocks

1372
01:27:48,000 –> 01:27:49,000
a blood vessel in your foot.

1373
01:27:49,000 –> 01:27:53,000
At this point,

1374
01:27:53,000 –> 01:27:57,000
your toes become a dark purple color

1375
01:27:57,000 –> 01:28:01,000
because they’re not getting enough oxygen,

1376
01:28:01,000 –> 01:28:04,000
blood flow because of the clot and

1377
01:28:04,000 –> 01:28:06,000
your toes become purple.

1378
01:28:06,000 –> 01:28:08,000
They call those COVID-19 toes.

1379
01:28:08,000 –> 01:28:11,000
It happens,

1380
01:28:11,000 –> 01:28:15,000
but I want to emphasize it’s rare.

1381
01:28:15,000 –> 01:28:20,000
However it’s interesting to notice

1382
01:28:20,000 –> 01:28:27,000
some of these rare occurrences from COVID-19.

1383
01:28:27,000 –> 01:28:30,000
>>JASON: Jack asks about the new

1384
01:28:30,000 –> 01:28:33,000
COVID-19 variant from the UK.

1385
01:28:33,000 –> 01:28:34,000
Will the vaccine help prevent it or

1386
01:28:34,000 –> 01:28:42,000
will there be a new one?

1387
01:28:42,000 –> 01:28:44,000
So far we see some prevention from the research.

1388
01:28:44,000 –> 01:28:46,000
Will it be the same in the future?

1389
01:28:46,000 –> 01:28:47,000
We don’t know.

1390
01:28:47,000 –> 01:28:49,000
It could be mild,

1391
01:28:49,000 –> 01:28:53,000
serious.

1392
01:28:53,000 –> 01:28:55,000
You could need a booster or something.

1393
01:28:55,000 –> 01:28:56,000
Things could change,

1394
01:28:56,000 –> 01:28:58,000
like I mentioned.

1395
01:28:58,000 –> 01:29:09,000
Somebody had mentioned that

1396
01:29:09,000 –> 01:29:14,000
somehing about dying from the vaccine

1397
01:29:14,000 –> 01:29:24,000
>>SHAZIA: No medical reports

1398
01:29:24,000 –> 01:29:32,000
[Other doctors aren’t aware of that as well]

1399
01:29:32,000 –> 01:29:37,000
>>SHAZIA: Someone asked about the

1400
01:29:37,000 –> 01:29:43,000
gorilla at a zoo in California I think.

1401
01:29:43,000 –> 01:29:45,000
I think it got it from a person who

1402
01:29:45,000 –> 01:29:48,000
interacted directly with the gorilla.

1403
01:29:48,000 –> 01:30:03,000
That’s new information to me.

1404
01:30:03,000 –> 01:30:07,000
OK,

1405
01:30:07,000 –> 01:30:12,000
I want to put everyone on the screen right

1406
01:30:12,000 –> 01:30:14,000
now just so you can see everyone’s face.

1407
01:30:14,000 –> 01:30:18,000
RNA is not genetic.

1408
01:30:18,000 –> 01:30:22,000
So if you were to

1409
01:30:22,000 –> 01:30:25,000

1410
01:30:25,000 –> 01:30:27,000
it doesn’t touch your own DNA.

1411
01:30:27,000 –> 01:30:31,000
As far as I know,

1412
01:30:31,000 –> 01:30:34,000
if you’re pregnant . . . that

1413
01:30:34,000 –> 01:30:39,000
information tells you what to do.

1414
01:30:39,000 –> 01:30:44,000
You should be fine to get the vaccine

1415
01:30:44,000 –> 01:30:46,000
if you’re pregnant but you have to look

1416
01:30:46,000 –> 01:30:49,000
at the risks versus benefits,

1417
01:30:49,000 –> 01:30:53,000
which outweighs which.

1418
01:30:53,000 –> 01:30:56,000
Right now the benefits outweigh the risk.

1419
01:30:56,000 –> 01:30:59,000
There’s no effect on the baby’s immune

1420
01:30:59,000 –> 01:31:04,000
system after it’s born.

1421
01:31:04,000 –> 01:31:06,000
>>CARL: The data

1422
01:31:06,000 –> 01:31:14,000
isn’t there yet.

1423
01:31:14,000 –> 01:31:17,000
It hasn’t been researched on pregnant

1424
01:31:17,000 –> 01:31:20,000
women yet but basically what we know

1425
01:31:20,000 –> 01:31:26,000
from the vaccine mRNA,

1426
01:31:26,000 –> 01:31:31,000
is that it’s safe for pregnant women.

1427
01:31:31,000 –> 01:31:32,000
I know a few pregnant women who’ve

1428
01:31:32,000 –> 01:31:38,000
got it but

1429
01:31:38,000 –> 01:31:44,000
there’s less risk with getting the vaccine.

1430
01:31:44,000 –> 01:31:45,000
It’s safer to get the vaccine when

1431
01:31:45,000 –> 01:31:49,000
you’re pregnant than not.

1432
01:31:49,000 –> 01:31:52,000
>>JASON: Someone asked if you’ll be

1433
01:31:52,000 –> 01:31:55,000
put in jail if you don’t get the vaccine.

1434
01:31:55,000 –> 01:31:57,000
No it’s not illegal.

1435
01:31:57,000 –> 01:31:58,000
It’s like any vaccine.

1436
01:31:58,000 –> 01:32:01,000
It’s up to you.

1437
01:32:01,000 –> 01:32:06,000
But it’s something to recognize your

1438
01:32:06,000 –> 01:32:11,000
social responsibility to get that

1439
01:32:11,000 –> 01:32:19,000
vaccination when it’s readily available to you.

1440
01:32:19,000 –> 01:32:24,000
>>CARL: Mary’s asking about the accessibility.

1441
01:32:24,000 –> 01:32:27,000
Each state website should have a posting.

1442
01:32:27,000 –> 01:32:28,000
It depends on your age and which

1443
01:32:28,000 –> 01:32:31,000
level you fit in,

1444
01:32:31,000 –> 01:32:33,000
the Phase 1a,

1445
01:32:33,000 –> 01:32:34,000
1b,

1446
01:32:34,000 –> 01:32:40,000
1c,

1447
01:32:40,000 –> 01:32:46,000
2 . . . whatever your state is following.

1448
01:32:46,000 –> 01:32:51,000
So it depends on your age and other

1449
01:32:51,000 –> 01:32:56,000
medical conditions will determine what phase you’re in.

1450
01:32:56,000 –> 01:32:59,000
To find out how much time is left in

1451
01:32:59,000 –> 01:33:02,000
that phase or when it’s your turn,

1452
01:33:02,000 –> 01:33:04,000
I’d recommend looking on the state

1453
01:33:04,000 –> 01:33:10,000
government website for your state to

1454
01:33:10,000 –> 01:33:14,000
see what the policy is.

1455
01:33:14,000 –> 01:33:19,000
It really varies state by state now.

1456
01:33:19,000 –> 01:33:21,000
>>JASON: Mary asked about access.

1457
01:33:21,000 –> 01:33:25,000
That is a good point.

1458
01:33:25,000 –> 01:33:28,000
Many marginalized communities don’t

1459
01:33:28,000 –> 01:33:30,000
have proper access to medical care,

1460
01:33:30,000 –> 01:33:31,000
vaccines,

1461
01:33:31,000 –> 01:33:37,000
things like that.

1462
01:33:37,000 –> 01:33:41,000
So how do we make this more accessible?

1463
01:33:41,000 –> 01:33:43,000
That’s a big general health problem.

1464
01:33:43,000 –> 01:33:47,000
With the US right now,

1465
01:33:47,000 –> 01:33:49,000
we’re working to try to solve that problem.

1466
01:33:49,000 –> 01:33:54,000
This panel is straying to

1467
01:33:54,000 –> 01:33:57,000
trying to provide information for The

1468
01:33:57,000 –> 01:34:01,000
community we interact with directly to make

1469
01:34:01,000 –> 01:34:07,000
sure they understand everything clearly.

1470
01:34:07,000 –> 01:34:13,000
There’s also the NAD,

1471
01:34:13,000 –> 01:34:14,000
a big advocacy group you can reach out to.

1472
01:34:14,000 –> 01:34:18,000
Lawmakers,

1473
01:34:18,000 –> 01:34:22,000
things like that to make sure there’s

1474
01:34:22,000 –> 01:34:23,000
equal access for things when it comes

1475
01:34:23,000 –> 01:34:29,000
to the medical field.

need a flu shot after Coronavirus vaccine?

1478
01:34:34,000 –> 01:34:37,000
Yes,

1479
01:34:37,000 –> 01:34:42,000
it’s different antibodies,

1480
01:34:42,000 –> 01:34:43,000
different immune system response.

1481
01:34:43,000 –> 01:34:47,000
Yes,

1482
01:34:47,000 –> 01:34:54,000
they are 2 separate viruses.

>>JASON: Another person asked what

1484
01:34:56,000 –> 01:34:57,000
this “shaking Y..”

1485
01:34:57,000 –> 01:34:58,000
is.

1486
01:34:58,000 –> 01:35:02,000
It’s for antibodies.

1487
01:35:02,000 –> 01:35:07,000
It’s the shape of a Yankee.

1488
01:35:07,000 –> 01:35:11,000
Y.

1489
01:35:11,000 –> 01:35:17,000
**Y shape means antibodies.

1490
01:35:17,000 –> 01:35:23,000
>>CARL: How do we figure out what is

1491
01:35:23,000 –> 01:35:25,000
and isn’t Factual>.

1492
01:35:25,000 –> 01:35:28,000
How do we know what’s right and wrong?

1493
01:35:28,000 –> 01:35:31,000
Good question.

1494
01:35:31,000 –> 01:35:34,000
It’s hard to tell but I recommend you

1495
01:35:34,000 –> 01:35:38,000
don’t read news on Facebook or social media.

1496
01:35:38,000 –> 01:35:39,000
I get my news fromplaces like the CDC,

1497
01:35:39,000 –> 01:35:41,000
research articles,

1498
01:35:41,000 –> 01:35:44,000
you know,

1499
01:35:44,000 –> 01:35:49,000
places like the CDC, research articles, you know, different sources like that.

1500
01:35:49,000 –> 01:35:52,000
We cannot rely on Facebook because

1501
01:35:52,000 –> 01:35:59,000
there’s no microchip in the vaccine.

1502
01:35:59,000 –> 01:36:02,000
It’s no made with baby fetuses.

1503
01:36:02,000 –> 01:36:04,000
There’s many things online that are fake.

1504
01:36:04,000 –> 01:36:07,000
So it is safe.

1505
01:36:07,000 –> 01:36:08,000
And if you want more information,

1506
01:36:08,000 –> 01:36:11,000
more data —

1507
01:36:11,000 –> 01:36:14,000
because the data has been collected

1508
01:36:14,000 –> 01:36:18,000
and is already there —

1509
01:36:18,000 –> 01:36:22,000
you can have a discussion with your

1510
01:36:22,000 –> 01:36:24,000
doctor and get more information and resources

1511
01:36:24,000 –> 01:36:25,000
about this.

1512
01:36:25,000 –> 01:36:27,000
Also,

1513
01:36:27,000 –> 01:36:30,000
have a good discussion with your

1514
01:36:30,000 –> 01:36:34,000
doctor about if the vaccine is good for you.

1515
01:36:34,000 –> 01:36:38,000
It depends on your own medical

1516
01:36:38,000 –> 01:36:41,000
history and meds you’re taking.

1517
01:36:41,000 –> 01:36:45,000
It depends on the person really.

1518
01:36:45,000 –> 01:36:47,000
So it’s important to have a

1519
01:36:47,000 –> 01:36:48,000
conversation with your doctor.

1520
01:36:48,000 –> 01:36:55,000
I’d recommend that is well.

1521
01:36:55,000 –> 01:36:57,000
>>JASON: I don’t want to nit pick but

1522
01:36:57,000 –> 01:37:00,000
I disagree a little bit

1523
01:37:00,000 –> 01:37:03,000
on the Facebook thing.

1524
01:37:03,000 –> 01:37:06,000
There is some information that’s

1525
01:37:06,000 –> 01:37:09,000
factual on Facebook.

1526
01:37:09,000 –> 01:37:10,000
You have to research where they’re

1527
01:37:10,000 –> 01:37:12,000
from —

1528
01:37:12,000 –> 01:37:13,000
the CDC,

1529
01:37:13,000 –> 01:37:14,000
from a hospital,

1530
01:37:14,000 –> 01:37:16,000
etc.

1531
01:37:16,000 –> 01:37:23,000
It’s probably

1532
01:37:23,000 –> 01:37:26,000
more factual from those sources.

1533
01:37:26,000 –> 01:37:29,000
If it’s from a politician,

1534
01:37:29,000 –> 01:37:34,000
you may have to be careful.

1535
01:37:34,000 –> 01:37:39,000
Just be careful from a

1536
01:37:39,000 –> 01:37:41,000
about the source.

1537
01:37:41,000 –> 01:37:43,000
If they’re in the medical field,

1538
01:37:43,000 –> 01:37:47,000
a medical organization,

1539
01:37:47,000 –> 01:37:54,000
infections background,

1540
01:37:54,000 –> 01:37:55,000
that’s more factual information than

1541
01:37:55,000 –> 01:37:59,000
just on Facebook.

1542
01:37:59,000 –> 01:38:03,000
I do disagree a little bit with IV

1543
01:38:03,000 –> 01:38:06,000
but you just have to look into the

1544
01:38:06,000 –> 01:38:09,000
source and where the information is

1545
01:38:09,000 –> 01:38:11,000
coming from to make sure it is factual.

1546
01:38:11,000 –> 01:38:18,000
>>SHAZIA:

1547
01:38:18,000 –> 01:38:25,000
Beth commented that we

1548
01:38:25,000 –> 01:38:27,000
could get the vaccine first because we

1549
01:38:27,000 –> 01:38:34,000
can’t lipread through masks,

1550
01:38:34,000 –> 01:38:37,000
we’re out socializing with other

1551
01:38:37,000 –> 01:38:43,000
people and can’t communicate.

1552
01:38:43,000 –> 01:38:44,000
Please let your Congress people know,

1553
01:38:44,000 –> 01:38:48,000
get involved,

1554
01:38:48,000 –> 01:38:50,000
so they think about us as well.

1555
01:38:50,000 –> 01:38:54,000
Get the word out there.

1556
01:38:54,000 –> 01:38:56,000
We did just select a new president.

1557
01:38:56,000 –> 01:39:10,000
Contact your congress people.

1558
01:39:10,000 –> 01:39:12,000
>>SHAZIA: So the Coronavirus vaccine

1559
01:39:12,000 –> 01:39:13,000
is freE?

1560
01:39:13,000 –> 01:39:14,000
It should be.

1561
01:39:14,000 –> 01:39:17,000
It should be.

1562
01:39:17,000 –> 01:39:28,000
It should be paid by the US government.

1563
01:39:28,000 –> 01:39:31,000
Issues with herd immunity.

1564
01:39:31,000 –> 01:39:36,000
I see there are a lot of people who

1565
01:39:36,000 –> 01:39:40,000
have health challenges or people who

1566
01:39:40,000 –> 01:39:43,000
are resistant to getting vaccine,

1567
01:39:43,000 –> 01:39:46,000
so will it take longer to hit herd immunity?

1568
01:39:46,000 –> 01:39:50,000
Unfortunately yes.

1569
01:39:50,000 –> 01:39:51,000
That means the virus will spread to more

1570
01:39:51,000 –> 01:39:54,000
and more people.

1571
01:39:54,000 –> 01:39:58,000
We’re trying to get this under

1572
01:39:58,000 –> 01:40:00,000
control and bring down people showing

1573
01:40:00,000 –> 01:40:05,000
symptoms and having to go to the hospital.

1574
01:40:05,000 –> 01:40:09,000
Yes if people are resistant to

1575
01:40:09,000 –> 01:40:17,000
getting vaccinated yes,

1576
01:40:17,000 –> 01:40:22,000
. We want 6-

1577
01:40:22,000 –> 01:40:29,000

1578
01:40:29,000 –> 01:40:31,000
-80% of people to get vaccinated so

1579
01:40:31,000 –> 01:40:39,000
that we can be at herd immunity.

1580
01:40:39,000 –> 01:40:44,000
>>CARL: Should we get a pulse ox machine?

1581
01:40:44,000 –> 01:40:47,000
It measures the amount of your oxygen

1582
01:40:47,000 –> 01:40:48,000
and blood pressure.

1583
01:40:48,000 –> 01:40:51,000
You can.

1584
01:40:51,000 –> 01:40:55,000
If you get sick or get Coronavirus.

1585
01:40:55,000 –> 01:40:58,000
But be careful not to mix the result

1586
01:40:58,000 –> 01:41:01,000
of your heart rate and oxygen.

1587
01:41:01,000 –> 01:41:04,000
They’re 2 very different numbers.

1588
01:41:04,000 –> 01:41:08,000
And sometimes if you see the number

1589
01:41:08,000 –> 01:41:11,000
dip it doesn’t mean your oxygen has

1590
01:41:11,000 –> 01:41:15,000
just decreased very quickly.

1591
01:41:15,000 –> 01:41:18,000
Maybe it’s not on your finger right,

1592
01:41:18,000 –> 01:41:22,000
needs to be readjusted.

1593
01:41:22,000 –> 01:41:27,000
If your oxygen level dips below a

1594
01:41:27,000 –> 01:41:30,000
80-90 you need to go to

1595
01:41:30,000 –> 01:41:33,000
the ER.

1596
01:41:33,000 –> 01:41:35,000
What you don’t want to do is obsess

1597
01:41:35,000 –> 01:41:36,000
about it.

1598
01:41:36,000 –> 01:41:39,000
Every 5 minutes,

1599
01:41:39,000 –> 01:41:41,000
constantly keep checking it.

1600
01:41:41,000 –> 01:41:45,000
That’s not healthy either.

1601
01:41:45,000 –> 01:41:47,000
Maybe check before you go to bed if

1602
01:41:47,000 –> 01:41:49,000
you’re sick.

1603
01:41:49,000 –> 01:41:52,000
That’ll give you an inkling of how

1604
01:41:52,000 –> 01:41:56,000
serious it is at that time.

1605
01:41:56,000 –> 01:42:01,000
Especially if you have COPD,

1606
01:42:01,000 –> 01:42:07,000
or other pre-existing issues.

1607
01:42:07,000 –> 01:42:13,000
A pulse oximiter could help.

1608
01:42:13,000 –> 01:42:16,000
Heart rate – 60-100 is average,

1609
01:42:16,000 –> 01:42:25,000
oxygen should be 90-92,

1610
01:42:25,000 –> 01:42:26,000
your breathing rate can be any where

1611
01:42:26,000 –> 01:42:29,000
between 10-20.

1612
01:42:29,000 –> 01:42:32,000
You don’t have to memorize the numbers.

1613
01:42:32,000 –> 01:42:44,000
It’s just important for the doctors.

1614
01:42:44,000 –> 01:42:48,000
Oh I see another question here about if

1615
01:42:48,000 –> 01:42:49,000
you should go to a hospital or clinic

1616
01:42:49,000 –> 01:42:54,000
to get the vaccine?

1617
01:42:54,000 –> 01:42:57,000
Similar vaccines are at both places.

1618
01:42:57,000 –> 01:42:59,000
You have to follow the same protocols,

1619
01:42:59,000 –> 01:43:00,000
wear a mask,

1620
01:43:00,000 –> 01:43:02,000
wash your hands,

1621
01:43:02,000 –> 01:43:07,000
social distancing.

1622
01:43:07,000 –> 01:43:12,000
I know many people are afraid of

1623
01:43:12,000 –> 01:43:15,000
going into hospitals now but if you use

1624
01:43:15,000 –> 01:43:19,000
those precautions you should be fine.

1625
01:43:19,000 –> 01:43:21,000
>>CARL: Eric is asking when we’ll go

1626
01:43:21,000 –> 01:43:23,000
back to normal,

1627
01:43:23,000 –> 01:43:27,000
when herd immunity will be achieved?

1628
01:43:27,000 –> 01:43:29,000
I don’t know what your guesses are.

1629
01:43:29,000 –> 01:43:33,000
It’s just a guess at this point.

1630
01:43:33,000 –> 01:43:35,000
>>SHAZIA: I think we’ll be wear a mask

1631
01:43:35,000 –> 01:43:40,000
and wash your hands for a while.

1632
01:43:40,000 –> 01:43:45,000
I’ve also noticed the flu hasn’t been

1633
01:43:45,000 –> 01:43:47,000
as impactful this year as other years.

1634
01:43:47,000 –> 01:43:52,000
I’ve seen zero.

1635
01:43:52,000 –> 01:43:55,000
Masking itself is a huge factor in

1636
01:43:55,000 –> 01:43:57,000
preventing the flu virus spread.

1637
01:43:57,000 –> 01:44:01,000
So I guess.

1638
01:44:01,000 –> 01:44:06,000
>>JASON: If I’m being super positive

1639
01:44:06,000 –> 01:44:09,000
by end of summer if everyone gets vaccines,

1640
01:44:09,000 –> 01:44:10,000
some of the younger population.

1641
01:44:10,000 –> 01:44:11,000
But I don’t know,

1642
01:44:11,000 –> 01:44:16,000
I doubt it.

1643
01:44:16,000 –> 01:44:18,000
I will say we should definitely

1644
01:44:18,000 –> 01:44:21,000
continue to wear masks,

1645
01:44:21,000 –> 01:44:22,000
especially in higher risk areas —

1646
01:44:22,000 –> 01:44:26,000
airplanes,

1647
01:44:26,000 –> 01:44:29,000
confined areas.

1648
01:44:29,000 –> 01:44:32,000
It just makes sense to prevent

1649
01:44:32,000 –> 01:44:37,000
getting sick or getting others sick.

1650
01:44:37,000 –> 01:44:38,000
>>SHAZIA: I’m with you —

1651
01:44:38,000 –> 01:44:41,000
I think summer.

1652
01:44:41,000 –> 01:44:44,000
Everyone wants vacation.

1653
01:44:44,000 –> 01:44:48,000
I want to travel again!

1654
01:44:48,000 –> 01:44:54,000
My focus was on global deaf health.

1655
01:44:54,000 –> 01:44:56,000
I’m stuck on Zoom doing my work.

1656
01:44:56,000 –> 01:44:58,000
All over the world,

1657
01:44:58,000 –> 01:45:01,000
international.

1658
01:45:01,000 –> 01:45:02,000
There are deaf people in the

1659
01:45:02,000 –> 01:45:03,000
Dominican Republic,

1660
01:45:03,000 –> 01:45:07,000
Indonesia,

1661
01:45:07,000 –> 01:45:09,000
we all come together on

1662
01:45:09,000 –> 01:45:13,000
Zoom.

1663
01:45:13,000 –> 01:45:15,000
UK is under very severe shutdown

1664
01:45:15,000 –> 01:45:19,000
right now.

1665
01:45:19,000 –> 01:45:20,000
We all just have to communicate as

1666
01:45:20,000 –> 01:45:23,000
best as we can.

1667
01:45:23,000 –> 01:45:24,000
We’re all in the same boat,

1668
01:45:24,000 –> 01:45:27,000
corner.

1669
01:45:27,000 –> 01:45:28,000
We all just have to protect ourselves,

1670
01:45:28,000 –> 01:45:29,000
families,

1671
01:45:29,000 –> 01:45:31,000
social distance,

1672
01:45:31,000 –> 01:45:32,000
wear a mask,

1673
01:45:32,000 –> 01:45:36,000
wash your hands,

1674
01:45:36,000 –> 01:45:44,000
We’re all in this together in the world.

1675
01:45:44,000 –> 01:45:47,000
>>CARL: Question from CJ: if you have

1676
01:45:47,000 –> 01:45:50,000
severe respiratory issues —

1677
01:45:50,000 –> 01:45:53,000
yes anything lung related should

1678
01:45:53,000 –> 01:45:55,000
definitely be prioritized to get the

1679
01:45:55,000 –> 01:45:59,000
vaccine because if you get Coronavirus,

1680
01:45:59,000 –> 01:46:05,000
you could have horrific results from that.

1681
01:46:05,000 –> 01:46:09,000
>>JASON: Another question I keep

1682
01:46:09,000 –> 01:46:11,000
getting is in regard to Tylenol or

1683
01:46:11,000 –> 01:46:13,000
ibuprofen to use it or not.

1684
01:46:13,000 –> 01:46:18,000
Some data shows if you

1685
01:46:18,000 –> 01:46:23,000
take it it

1686
01:46:23,000 –> 01:46:25,000
can lower the vaccine effective.

1687
01:46:25,000 –> 01:46:27,000
But if your symptoms

1688
01:46:27,000 –> 01:46:32,000
get really bad,

1689
01:46:32,000 –> 01:46:34,000
you can take it once or twice and it

1690
01:46:34,000 –> 01:46:40,000
won’t effect it.

1691
01:46:40,000 –> 01:46:42,000
Another question was sickle cell

1692
01:46:42,000 –> 01:46:44,000
disease is that a high-risk group?

1693
01:46:44,000 –> 01:46:51,000
Yes,

1694
01:46:51,000 –> 01:46:54,000
it changes how your immune system

1695
01:46:54,000 –> 01:46:58,000
responds so talk to your doctor about getting the vaccine.

1696
01:46:58,000 –> 01:47:00,000
>>SHAZIA: After I get the second

1697
01:47:00,000 –> 01:47:06,000
vaccine can I resume traveling?

1698
01:47:06,000 –> 01:47:07,000
For right now< all precautions are the 1699 01:47:07,000 --> 01:47:09,000
same —

1700
01:47:09,000 –> 01:47:10,000
keep social distancing,

1701
01:47:10,000 –> 01:47:11,000
wear a mask,

1702
01:47:11,000 –> 01:47:18,000
wash your hands,

1703
01:47:18,000 –> 01:47:24,000
Maybe you’ve built up immunity but

1704
01:47:24,000 –> 01:47:26,000
remember it’s only 95% effective so you

1705
01:47:26,000 –> 01:47:30,000
can still get sick

1706
01:47:30,000 –> 01:47:32,000
But even if you don’t you can transmit

1707
01:47:32,000 –> 01:47:35,000
it to other people.

1708
01:47:35,000 –> 01:47:37,000
Many people I know just want to hug

1709
01:47:37,000 –> 01:47:42,000
their grandkids again.

1710
01:47:42,000 –> 01:47:47,000
Almost been a year since we’ve hugged them.

1711
01:47:47,000 –> 01:47:51,000
Hopefully the more people who get vaccinated,

1712
01:47:51,000 –> 01:47:52,000
we can do that soon but leave those

1713
01:47:52,000 –> 01:47:54,000
masks on.

1714
01:47:54,000 –> 01:47:56,000
It’s really important you get those

1715
01:47:56,000 –> 01:48:01,000
vaccines to get immunity for yourself.

1716
01:48:01,000 –> 01:48:06,000
>>CARL: Message from Lauren: if you

1717
01:48:06,000 –> 01:48:09,000
get COVID-19 and recover,

1718
01:48:09,000 –> 01:48:15,000
what are the chances of infections again?

1719
01:48:15,000 –> 01:48:17,000
There are some cases that show people

1720
01:48:17,000 –> 01:48:20,000
getting infections a second time.

1721
01:48:20,000 –> 01:48:23,000
Like we mentioned,

1722
01:48:23,000 –> 01:48:26,000
some immune systems keep up their immunity.

1723
01:48:26,000 –> 01:48:28,000
Others don’t as well.

1724
01:48:28,000 –> 01:48:32,000
So it depends.

1725
01:48:32,000 –> 01:48:33,000
You can get infected a second time.

1726
01:48:33,000 –> 01:48:37,000
They’re still not sure.

1727
01:48:37,000 –> 01:48:40,000
It could be a few months later.

1728
01:48:40,000 –> 01:48:44,000
That’s why we still suggest still use

1729
01:48:44,000 –> 01:48:56,000
the precautions because you can get sick again.

1730
01:48:56,000 –> 01:48:59,000
I saw a question about blood types —

1731
01:48:59,000 –> 01:49:04,000
A B O —

1732
01:49:04,000 –> 01:49:06,000
is there any heightened risk with a

1733
01:49:06,000 –> 01:49:07,000
specific type?

1734
01:49:07,000 –> 01:49:11,000
As far as we know,

1735
01:49:11,000 –> 01:49:16,000
there’s no research showing that.

1736
01:49:16,000 –> 01:49:20,000
But like I mentioned if you have

1737
01:49:20,000 –> 01:49:22,000
sickle cell or other blood diseases you

1738
01:49:22,000 –> 01:49:26,000
do have a higher risk,

1739
01:49:26,000 –> 01:49:31,000
but a blood type I don’t think so.

1740
01:49:31,000 –> 01:49:33,000
What about the overlap with Coronavirus

1741
01:49:33,000 –> 01:49:35,000
and rubella?

1742
01:49:35,000 –> 01:49:40,000
I’m not a virologist,

1743
01:49:40,000 –> 01:49:44,000
specialist about viruses but I do know

1744
01:49:44,000 –> 01:49:52,000
they share a similar shape the vaccine

1745
01:49:52,000 –> 01:49:55,000
is also made for

1746
01:49:55,000 –> 01:50:00,000
RMA but I don’t know.

1747
01:50:00,000 –> 01:50:03,000
>>SHAZIA: I saw people saying you

1748
01:50:03,000 –> 01:50:04,000
already answered the question.

1749
01:50:04,000 –> 01:50:08,000
I’m sorry!

1750
01:50:08,000 –> 01:50:11,000
We’ve gotten like 200 questions and I don’t

1751
01:50:11,000 –> 01:50:15,000
remember what we’ve answered and not

1752
01:50:15,000 –> 01:50:17,000
but I’ll give you all our emails and if

1753
01:50:17,000 –> 01:50:21,000
you have any questions in the future< 1754 01:50:21,000 --> 01:50:25,000
you can get in touch with us.

1755
01:50:25,000 –> 01:50:36,000
Al . . . should send that out to you.

1756
01:50:36,000 –> 01:50:39,000
All right,

1757
01:50:39,000 –> 01:50:42,000
wow that was really a wonderful program.

1758
01:50:42,000 –> 01:50:44,000
Impressed and learned a lo today.

1759
01:50:44,000 –> 01:50:45,000
I hope you all did.

1760
01:50:45,000 –> 01:50:47,000
Man,

1761
01:50:47,000 –> 01:50:50,000
really inneresting topics.

1762
01:50:50,000 –> 01:50:52,000
It’s really sad we have to go through

1763
01:50:52,000 –> 01:50:54,000
this but it’s important to get the right information.

1764
01:50:54,000 –> 01:50:57,000
Thank you,

1765
01:50:57,000 –> 01:50:58,000
all 3 doctors.

1766
01:50:58,000 –> 01:51:02,000
Also,

1767
01:51:02,000 –> 01:51:05,000
thank you to a couple other people

1768
01:51:05,000 –> 01:51:12,000
behind the scenes that made this happen today,

1769
01:51:12,000 –> 01:51:16,000
like Ken Brown who ran the webinar for us.

1770
01:51:16,000 –> 01:51:18,000
We have 2 interprets here,

1771
01:51:18,000 –> 01:51:22,000
AMelia and Billy.

1772
01:51:22,000 –> 01:51:26,000
And we had a captionist Ruth-Ann.

1773
01:51:26,000 –> 01:51:33,000
Most importantly —

1774
01:51:33,000 –> 01:51:36,000
I’m the left hand but the VP of the

1775
01:51:36,000 –> 01:51:41,000
GSA Bill [sp?]

1776
01:51:41,000 –> 01:51:46,000
Let’s put everyone’s faces.

1777
01:51:46,000 –> 01:51:54,000
Phil Aiello and everyone.

1778
01:51:54,000 –> 01:51:55,000
Can we get everyone up here?

1779
01:51:55,000 –> 01:52:01,000
Hold on.

1780
01:52:01,000 –> 01:52:24,000
e

1781
01:52:24,000 –> 01:52:27,000
There we go.

1782
01:52:27,000 –> 01:52:30,000
Thank you all.

1783
01:52:30,000 –> 01:52:33,000
