For news outlets, here is a necessary clarification about poet laureates by incredible US Poet Laureate @JoyHarjo . I am not the only one, nor the last

I'm just waiting for @JoshMalina to correct this to 'Poets Laureate'...

Lots of questions about the Covid-19 vaccines -- here are some of the more common ones, with my answers. Directed at clinicians, but probably something here for all. Any that we missed?
@NEJM

This is a *really* excellent FAQ on COVID vaccines! Lots of information, even for those with a lot of knowledge. Thanks @PaulSaxMD!!!!!

Confused by someone labeled "immunocompromised" and their infection risks? Same. So with guidance of our ID Mentors @PrathitKulkarni, @Cortes_Penfield, & @transplantID - @KatieBedardMD, Charmaine Mutucumarana and I created an Infections in Immunocompromised Hosts Schema

I love this "immunocompromise guide"! I'm giving it to my fellows today...

A9. I actually cried when I saw the Pfizer vaccine data. This has been a hard year for all of us, but knowing that this disease is preventable and *will be* prevented took a weight off my shoulders… #AskReuters

A6. “Herd immunity” depends a bit on the infectivity of the virus, too! We might see that it moves further away when the more contagious variants become prominent. Get the vaccine as soon as you can!!! #AskReuters

Clarification: we don’t know for sure that the vaccines prevent infection as well as they prevent *symptomatic* infection!!!

A6. Modelling of the timing of herd immunity depends a lot on how long immunity lasts and how quickly we get the vaccine out!!! There are also some other questions about whether the vax prevents infection, but we think it very likely will!!! #AskReuters

Q5. How can cities and states help overcome skepticism around the vaccine, especially in minority communities where trust in public health tends to be lower? #AskReuters

I’m a health worker, and I have gotten infected by SARS-CoV-2. When would be safe be vaccined ? #AskReuters

When is it safe to get vaccinated after being infected with COVID-19? This is a million dollar question!!! It’s definitely *safe* as soon as your symptoms have resolved - @CDCgov says it’s ok to wait 90 days, because reinfection is rare during that period. #AskReuters

This is very important. We need to engage people and communities at all levels. We should partner and work with trusted members of communities, religious leaders and understand concerns. We need to meet people where they are and start from there #AskReuters

Flatulence

Definition: A disorder characterized by a state of excessive gas in the alimentary canal.

Quoted @PergamIC

A3: My symptoms were super benign. A bit of a sore shoulder that was all for ~24 hours.

@CDCgov following closely, so when you get your vaccine sign up for V-Safe to make sure can track symptoms. They are collecting these data to help answer these ?s #AskReuters

People will see all sorts of “side-effects” being reported after the vaccines. It’s important to remain a little skeptical - sometimes things happen around the same time. There are several reports of “vaccine-associated flatulence” that I’m a little wary about… #AskReuters

Quoted @joe934583

@Reuters #AskReuters if someone had a bad reaction to the HPV vaccine, would they be safe with COVID?

People should definitely ask their doctor before getting a new vaccine if they’ve had a bad reaction to a previous shot, but there is no reason to think that there will be “cross-reactivity” they work in completely different ways!

A4. Happily, current vaccines seem to protect against all known variants! But, they seem to spread really easily, so we will see more spread, and even some people who are vaccinated getting infected. #AskReuters

Some folks have reported feeling “fluey”, especially after the second dose...My experience was running a personal best for the year the day after my second dose of the @pfizer vax, so your milage may vary! #AskReuters

A3. Most people who get the US COVID vaccines do get a sore arm for a couple of days!!! Many get a headache or feel more tired for 24-48 hours. THAT’S IT!!!!

@StJudeResearch Because of cancer or chemo, these kids kids have temporarily damaged immune systems that make it hard for them to beat infections - they can even die from things that cause common colds. We REALLY don’t want them to get #COVID19!!! #AskReuters

A2. COVID vaccines are safe even in people with compromised (damaged or suppressed) immune systems! As as pediatrician specializing in looking after kids with cancer - I can’t wait to be able to give it to my patients at @StJudeResearch #AskReuters

Any debate about use of rapid antigen tests for screening well asymptomatic individuals for #SARCoV2 needs to acknowledge:

PCR may be more sensitive than LFTs BUT:

1. PCR is costly so not feasible for frequent testing of well asymptomatic except in wealthiest of settings

Be cautious using antibody therapy for #COVID19 in children! @PIDSociety @jpidsociety day @IDSAInfo
