Reassuring Facts About the COVID-19 Vaccines

The coronavirus (COVID-19) has had a devastating toll on our communities. But now we have highly effective tools—approved COVID-19 vaccines—to prevent serious illness and deaths caused by the virus.

 

  • The vaccines are safe, even though they were made quickly. The vaccines came to market quickly, and I know that makes some people nervous. All of the usual steps to make and test vaccines were still included in the process. The technology used in the vaccines had been in development for decades. So, the scientists were not starting from scratch when they made these vaccines.
  • The vaccines give you powerful protection against the virus. The vaccines work extremely well to protect people from getting sick or severely ill with COVID-19. Based on current data, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) scientists also believe that the vaccines help protect you from the COVID-19 variants found in this country.
  • The vaccines are free and widely available. There are enough vaccines for everyone. All of them are free. They are available for all adults and children age 12 and older, depending on the type of vaccine.
  • The vaccines will not make you sick with COVID-19. None of the vaccines contain any living COVID-19 virus. That means it’s not possible for them to make you sick with the virus. Instead, they teach your immune system to spot and fight off COVID-19.
  • The vaccines do not affect your fertility. There is a lot of false information out there about the vaccines. One common question to clear up: The COVID-19 vaccines do not cause infertility. The science of how the vaccines is made makes us confident that the vaccines are not a cause of infertility.

John C. Kim, MD, FACOG

 

John C. Kim, MD, FACOG is a board-certified OB-GYN physician with advanced fellowship training in endoscopic women’s pelvic surgery and minimally invasive surgery. He earned both his Bachelor and Master degrees in Industrial Engineering, from North Carolina State University. He is a graduate of the University of North Carolina School of Medicine at Chapel Hill and completed his OB-GYN residency at Palmetto Richland Memorial Hospital in South Carolina prior to completing dual fellowships in minimally invasive surgery and endoscopic women’s pelvic surgery at Florida Hospital Celebration Health.

Dr. Kim specializes in laparoscopic and robotic-assisted gynecologic procedures for treating patients with symptomatic fibroids, urinary control issues, pelvic organ prolapse, bleeding and clotting issues, chronic pelvic pain, and endometriosis, among other disorders. In Dr. Kim’s words, “Being a doctor was a childhood dream. I am most excited about the minimally invasive gynecologic surgeries and in-office-based procedures. Two areas that I like to focus on in women’s care involve contraceptive options and menstrual disorders. These two areas can be treated both medically and surgically and if properly treated, they can significantly improve the quality of women’s lives.”

Dr. Kim believes in building a doctor-patient health partnership in which he thoroughly involves his patients in discussions and decisions about their treatment plans. In his spare time, Dr. Kim enjoys saltwater fishing, biking, and playing tennis. He is currently planning extended road trips in a Tesla Cyber Truck (on order) so he can try out all the great BBQ restaurants in America.
