@DavidAgus I’m getting my second dose of moderna vaccine and my husband isn’t yet eligible for it. Can I still pass the virus to him after my second dose?

Yes, there is a chance you can transmit the virus- but will be much less than if you weren't vaccinated

Fantastic news- @JNJNews Covid-19 vaccine is available in our arsenal this week to fight the virus. An important & overlooked point is that this is a not-for-profit vaccine. Kudos to Alex Gorsky & Paul Stoffels for not taking advantage & trying to make a profit during a pandemic.

While we daily curse the virus that caused this pandemic, a new study further identifies virus' within us that enable our system to be in order. The virus is both friend & foe. 21,000 species of phage reside in our GI tract with over 12,000 just identified

@DavidAgus had my second moderna yesterday...ended up taking ibuprofen about 10 hours after the shot...would that dampen the effects of the vaccine?

No issue, totally fine to take Tylenol or ibuprofen.

Do you think a #COVID vaccine booster is inevitable by the end of the year?

"I think either a booster or a third shot to keep the antibody levels high enough, is certainly inevitable. My gut is yeah, it's going to be by the end of the year." — Dr. @DavidAgus

@DavidAgus hey. I’m getting my vaccine today. I’m a type 1 diabetic. Should I look for any side effects after getting my shot?

Nothing special to look out for. So happy you are being vaccinated.

How significant an increase do you think we're likely to see?

"I think it's going to be real. We saw announced over the past day there are 7 new variants in the United States... this virus is zigging and zagging. I hope we can zig and zag with it." — Dr. @DavidAgus

There's been a dramatic downturn in #coronavirus cases and deaths in the U.S. but experts say new variants could cause those numbers to spike again.

Dr. @DavidAgus joins us to discuss more on the #COVID variants and the vaccine rollout across the country.

We are doing better at putting vaccines into arms but at current rate will take 10 months to get 75% coverage. We need @JNJNews & @AstraZeneca vaccines to receive EUA asap to save lives & protect from variant spread. Longer we wait the happier the regulators & the more lives lost

Most Covid-19 deaths are in the 50+ age group while most spread of the virus is age 20-49. As we vaccinate predominantly over age 65 (& I believe in protecting the vulnerable) we won't see a dramatic fall in # of cases until we vaccinate younger groups at end of national rollout
