Hawaii today reported 3 cases of what is known as "after vaccination covid" Hawaii residents with no travel history got sick on COVID_19 after receiving both doses of the vaccine. Officials in Hawaii were busy calming down residents in stating: “The really important thing is that being vaccinated prevents us from a serious illness, hospitalization, and death.
That’s what we really need the vaccines to do for us,” Char said. Dr. Libby Char is Hawaii's health director “We have seen cases where people are fully vaccinated, and we have some cases in Hawai‘i now where people got vaccinated…traveled to the mainland, and we think they got ill on the mainland. Thankfully, their symptoms were very mild, which is exactly the protection the vaccine affords, but you can get infected with COVID.” “We will get to everybody. We are very happy that people want to get vaccinated. We look forward to vaccinating everyone who is interested,” Char said.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/etn/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/etn/support
