Now, Christ said that there are still people who are willing to get a vaccine that may simply be busy.

“And now we need to make it more convenient in the areas where they live, work and play, grocery stores and pharmacies,” she said. And from this week, doctors will be included.

Cited doctor and patient trust

Christ said she believes it will make a big difference in the state’s efforts to vaccinate as many people as possible.

It goes beyond the convenience of being able to get the vaccine when you stop by for an annual health check. The important thing is to get immediate and reliable answers to issues such as risk and benefit.

Think about the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Its use was suspended by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention following reports that a handful (less than one person per million doses) had acquired a blood clot. The CDC is now permitting use again, but Christ said reports could make people hesitate to inoculate, especially if it is the only vaccine available.

She said the doctor could get it in sight.

“I would like to advise my patients,’If you get COVID-19, you are at a higher risk of developing blood clots than you are at risk of developing blood clots from this vaccine,” Christ said.
