Your COVID-19 Vaccine Questions, Answered

from Latino USA | Published 4/16/2021

Can undocumented people get the vaccine? How much is it going to cost? And how well do the COVID-19 vaccines work around children? Or with pregnant women? Many are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel after a long year like no other, as adults in the U.S. are quickly becoming eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. But some still have questions. Many Latinos — who are among those hardest hit by COVID-19 — have expressed concerns about access to the vaccine and avoiding the spread of misinformation among loved ones. Latino USA asked listeners to call in with their questions about the vaccine, and guest health experts Dr. Olveen Carrasquillo, from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, and Dr. Amelie Ramirez, director of Salud America!, join us to provide some answers. Also, Maria Hinojosa checks back in with Dr. Anthony Fauci after getting her second shot of the COVID-19 vaccine.
