Our third guest is Dr. Mohammed Yassin, Medical Director for Infection Prevention, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Did you know that COVID-19 cases are continuing to rise across much of the U.S. as the summer travel season is in full swing for many Americans? For many unvaccinated adults, a COVID infection could mean several days of severe illness or worse, hospitalization or long-lasting symptoms. Getting vaccinated is the best way to enjoy peace of mind against severe illness and keep COVID from ruining a long-awaited vacation. COVID vaccines protect against severe illness, hospitalization, and death. Today Dr. Yassin will discuss the importance of getting vaccinated and ways to stay safe and healthy as COVID cases continue to rise. He will also address myths and misinformation about vaccines and provide insights on any other COVID-related topic. For more information please visit: https://www.vaccines.gov/
