Vaccines still have a long way to go before they’re as safe as they need to be for summer visits

It’s not very often that a new vaccine does not have some kind of link to an unfortunate outbreak of something infectious. After all, emergency vaccination is a part of the disaster plan for many life-threatening illnesses, like measles. Emergency vaccination is an essential, essential part of almost any emergency medicine treatment. So why is this new COVID vaccine a big deal?

Because vaccines from Pfizer and BioNTech will not be completely safe unless it is taken within a couple of weeks before. Remember, we’re talking about vaccination for serious diseases, and you should not be taking emergency immunizations without seeing a doctor first. This new COVID vaccine will not produce the same side effects of another currently marketed vaccine for the same disease. No worries!

COVID will be available for emergency use for only one vaccine for the vaccine causes, shingles. The company plans to phase out the use of it for shingles vaccine if no secondary benefits emerge during the next two to three years. Also, the age range to start COVID for these teens is 16 and 17. It is not age specific, just that you don’t want kids or adults getting COVID for emergency use who should not have it.

Shingles vaccine is important for many reasons: not only because shingles is a chronic, chronic condition with very long duration of symptoms, most importantly, it makes others (in the form of any virus such as herpes simplex virus) less contagious. Additionally, these new vaccines with COVID in them will complement existing and soon-to-be-launched shingles vaccine vaccines for a growing number of states.

CORRECTION: This article was changed to clarify the age range for COVID. It is available for emergency use for only one vaccine.
