I've been kinda working as the head of the national institutes health from my house for the last twelve months and i am really glad to be getting out of these. Four walls are getting a little bit tight. We all feel the same way in the fact that summer is here. People are ready to their vaccine. There waxed and they're ready to party. You know the thing is a lot of a lot of people who listen to our show have not been vaccinated yet. So let's talk about. How can get that to go away. Yeah let's do that because we are in this amazing place where we have vaccines that had been proven safe and effective and now been administered over one hundred and fifty million people in the united states and they are working great but the way to really drive this virus away and have not come back again and various hot spots to get all of us. Acclimated pneumatic close. Young people may think of themselves as maybe not as vulnerable. Young people can still get pretty sick and other thing. We're learning as even those who don't get very sick sometimes. Don't get better this long hauler problem and that applies the young people. Do on top of that. You can sell spread to other vulnerable rable people so i guess i'm trying to make a case here Those of you who have not yet gotten started as about one hundred million american adults who haven't yet gotten adverse does. This is the time to do it. Go to vaccines dot gov and you can find out how to start today. If anyone was saying well. I don't wanna wait and see. See how it goes. I think we see how it goes with. Over one hundred million people already vaccinated and for a while. It's been this way we've been vaccinated for a long time. We're great. I mean it's like logically were still demanded as we true disagree with ask for you. I have a question. I have two kids of course sixteen and twelve and the vaccine for the kids like the newest thing to pop up and the question that a lot of my friends have had. Is they hear. It could cause infertility when they get older. And that is you know. Obviously you don't want that to happen. So that's something that Is bothering them. So this is an issue. I can be very reassuring. You're there is absolutely doe. Data has suggested any of these vaccines are contributing at all to any risk of infertility. That kinda got out there on social media as if it was a real risk. There's no data to support that in fact because people have been getting immunized is since last summer as part of the trials. If this was a serious issue we would always. I now so relaxed. Everybody this is not going to make you infertile. Let me also say if you're pregnant and you get cold red. You're likely to have a fairly severe time. Mother in that would be something really like to avoid on the other hand if you get vaccinated. You're also giving those antibodies to your baby now. It's your mama's first gift to the baby. This community to kobe because that gets passed through the placenta in breast milk. So there's lots of reasons to think about doing this. Positivity pregnant women should talk to their. Obgyn doctor be sure there's nothing they're concerned about. But this present time no evidence to worry about this likewise for breastfeeding god. Because i have to breastfeed after college. Dr francis collins from national institutes of health. He's the director. I bet a lot of people listening to this okay. Today's day what do i do. Where do i go. What's the fastest way to find out where i can. Hop in the car and get jabbed immediately. Okay did it. Two ways. One is just by texting.
