Medical Society of the County of Queens Social Media Campaign #MSCQ4Covid19Vaccines. We got vaccinated. Research shows that vaccines are safe and effective. The rollout is improving and we doctors encourage all to get the shot against Covid 19 when possible! Vaccinate Queens!
The vaccination against SARS CoV 2 (COVID 19) is our most important tool to combat this disease. The vaccines are safe, and they are effective. The more New Yorkers vaccinated, the lower the viral replication, the lower the number of mutations we will encounter. The fewer of you will become ill.
There is much misinformation, many hoaxes, and conspiracy theories about the current vaccines. The choppy rollout has led to the politicization of the process. We must rely upon facts and science. We must turn to reliable sources such as CDC.gov. Despite the slow start, the Covid-19 vaccine rollout is improving. One could argue the initial limits on who could be vaccinated was a mistake. This will be behind us in the coming weeks as more doses become available. More sites are already coming online, and the process will become easier.
In a county as diverse and unique as Queens, it is crucial that we speak with one voice and one message about the Covid 19 vaccines. Getting vaccinated is the best way to contain this virus and prevent illness that has hurt many of our fellow citizens, colleagues, and loved ones.
With #MSCQ4Covid19Vaccines, we want to inform and encourage all, despite the slow roll out, to receive the vaccine. The only way
forward is through: the vaccine will soon be available to all, and we want you to feel confident and secure. Check us out periodically to hear our personal experiences, opinions, and guidance to get new updates and information. We, the Medical Society of the County of
Queens members, strongly encourage and support that all be vaccinated. We believe in the safety and necessity of vaccines. Current vaccine candidates (including Pfizer and Moderna) have been authorized by the Food and Drug Administration for emergency use and are proven to be safe and effective! As the vaccine supply increases, the restrictions will be lifted, and the opportunities to be vaccinated will increase. In the meantime, act responsibly, wash your hands, socially distance, and wear a mask.
