MD For Moms Radio, Every Wednesday 1pm (ET) on The BBM Global Network, TuneIn and iHeartRadio or as a podcast on iTunes.
This week on MD for Moms, I interview Dr. Anna Grosz about the COVID19 vaccines and about symptoms of COVID19. Dr. Grosz is an ENT involved in the mass vaccination programs in Oregon and Southwest Washington. We discuss who is appropriate for the vaccine, if there are differences between the available shots and possible side effects. Dr. Grosz also explains how her states arrived at their schedule and how they are working to get as many people vaccinated as quickly as possible. We also explore who is eligible for the shot (for example, what if you are pregnant or breastfeeding?) and reasons why the shot is overall considered safe and effective.
Wondering about the odd but common symptom of anosmia (inability to smell) from COVID19? How long does it last, why does it happen and do you totally lose smell and taste, or is partial enough to warrant getting a COVID19 test? Answers to these questions and many more on this week’s MD for Moms.
