WATCH: Top experts answer questions about vaccine safety, effectiveness and availability

Two top Advocate Aurora Health doctors on Wednesday addressed viewer questions about vaccines, COVID-19, masks and when life might get back to normal during a discussion on Facebook Live.

Executive Medical Director of Infectious Disease and Prevention Dr. Robert Citronberg and primary care physician Dr. Jacqueline Ivey-Brown discussed the supply challenges around distributing COVID-19 vaccines and why people should step up when it’s their turn to get a shot.

The forum hosted by Advocate Aurora Health President and CEO Jim Skogsbergh might address some of the questions you’ve been having about the vaccine, especially as federal regulators prepare to likely approve a new version.

You can watch the discussion on Facebook, or the full video is available below.

  1. I want to know….I got the 1st shot of Pfizer 2 days ago and on the next day, I couldn’t get out of bed because of body stiffness. I guess my joints were inflamed, I don’t know, but I could hardly move. And I had mild pressure on my head, not a headache, but pressure. The next after sleeping all day the day before, I got up and everything was fine. But I read that if you have a reaction not to take the 2nd shot.

    Wisconsin needs drive-thru vaccination sites! Other states have them (AZ, IL) and it makes good sense for everyone. We’ve all been told to stay home and not be in contact with anyone outside those who live with you. Then we are told to go into a clinic and wait with others for a vaccine. Keep us safe and get these drive-thru sites for us – thank you.
