COVID-19 Vaccines: 8 Myths and the Facts to Refute Them


We compiled the top trending Myths about the COVID-19 vaccine in wide circulation and added the Facts to help you educate your patients.

The December 2020 FDA emergency use authorization granted for 2 vaccines against the coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) disease has been met with hope, excitement, skepticism, and distrust. Some of your patients may be eager for the shot in the arm, others may be implacably opposed, and a middle group will require reassurance and some counseling from you.

Unfortunately, all of your patients will have been exposed to some degree of misinformation about the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines, eg, about their development, testing, manufacturing, side effects, and efficacy, to name a few topics.

To help keep you current on the type of misleading statements in circulation and to counter them accurately, Patient Care Online® assembled a set of Myths and Facts drawn from government and other authoritative online sources.

Following is part 1 of our 2-part slide show.
