Science Supports Vaccines

As the number of daily vaccines is dropping in Nevada County, medical experts are urging residents who have been hesitant to get immunized to do so in order to bring vaccination rates up and lower the chance of another surge of coronavirus. Sierra Nevada memorial Hospital’s Dr. Brian Evans says a recent study reinforces that along with reducing the chance of infection, the vaccine also limits the severity of symptoms if contracted after being vaccinated.


Less than one percent of the hospitalized patients had received both doses of a vaccine at the time of exposure. Dr. Evans says that the risk of a bad side effect from the vaccine is also much smaller than the effects of COVID if not vaccinated.


Medical professionals and researchers agree that the vaccine is the way to go.
With June 15th only a few weeks away, Evans says the data is more positive and there is hope on the horizon.

Until then, public health officials and medical practitioners continue to focus on following health guidelines and increasing vaccinations.
