Mayo Clinic Q&A: Rapid pace of COVID-19 vaccinations

  • 1 Video | 14m 20s
Millions of people in the U.S. are being vaccinated for COVID-19. However, the discussion is ongoing as to whether people who are immunocompromised, such as patients undergoing cancer treatment, or people who have autoimmune diseases, should be vaccinated for COVID-19. "Both of those categories (of people) should be vaccinated," says Dr. Gregory Poland, an infectious diseases expert and head of Mayo Clinic's Vaccine Research Group. "Those are not contraindications. Those are indications to get the vaccine." He adds that research is ongoing, but current information demonstrates the benefits far outweigh the theoretical risks. (Published 03/17/2021)
