With the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still actively affecting millions of lives all around the world after months of its rise, a vaccine is the ultimate solution. Scientists and researchers have been working on a vaccine for the virus but the process of producing a reliable, side effect-free vaccine is not an easy one. The FDA has approved an EUA for the COVID-19 vaccine for Pfizer and Moderna Theraputics. Once the vaccines are finalized and approved as safe, My Concierge MD has been approved by the health department to administer the vaccine, providing all its Los Angeles clients with the ultimate form of protection. We are closely following guidelines set by the CDC and the health department in the roll out of the vaccine in its phases and the population of patients who should be receiving the vaccine in its early phase when vaccinations are limited.
Which vaccine do we offer for COVID-19?
We are currently in talks with Pfizer and Moderna Theraputics and have applied to be a listed provider with the health department in order to obtain their vaccines once they are released. We are looking closely at the risk profiles and efficacy of each of these vaccines.
How does the COVID-19 vaccine work?
A vaccine is made by taking bacteria or viruses and creating a weaker version of them. When this weaker version enters your body, it triggers your immune system to start fighting without actually making you sick.
The COVID-19 vaccine is made from the mRNA gene of the virus to trigger the immune system to create antibodies and an immune response to protect a reinfection from the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes the COVID-19 disease.
