美国医务总监和医学专家发表关于 COVID-19 疫苗进展的讲话:“抗击疫情,我们可以做到”

Vivek Murthy 博士、Adelaida Rosario博士和沈爱梅医学博士为华人社区分享有关COVID-19疫苗安全性的信息 作者:特约撰稿人 为支持拜登-哈里斯政府的“抗击疫情,我们可以做到”公共教育推广活动,以提高人们对 COVID-19 疫苗的信心并鼓励接种疫苗,TDW+Co 公司与美国卫生与公共服务部合作,为亚裔美国人、夏威夷原住民和太平洋岛民 (AANHPI) 媒体于6 月 10 日星期四举行了线上新闻发布会。 在线上活动期间,来自不同州的医学专家提供了他们的疫情经验,以及最新的、值得信赖的 COVID-19 疫苗信息。特别演讲者包括:美国卫生与公众服务部医务总监Vivek H. Murthy医学博士;美国卫生与公众服务部医务办公室Adelaida M. Rosario博士;来自旧金山东北医疗服务 (North East Medical Services, NEMS)的沈爱梅医学博士。 在现场提问环节,医学专家回答了有关COVID-19疫苗的安全性和有效性问题,如何确保安全,防止新冠进一步蔓延,和AANHPIs面临的健康卫生不公平。 COVID 给数百万美国人带来了巨大的痛苦,但 COVID-19 疫苗给许多家庭和社区带来了希望。截至6月10日,疾病预防控制中心报告说,现在有1.72亿居住在美国的人已完全接种疫苗。其中,至少6.1 % 的亚洲人(非西班牙裔)和0.3 % 的夏威夷原住民和太平洋岛民群体至少接种过一次疫苗,估计有626万人。  “仅在美国,我们就已接种了 3 亿多剂疫苗。这为我们积攒了大量的疫苗经验,”医学博士、工商管理学硕士、美国卫生与公众服务部医务总监 Vice Admiral Vivek H. Murthy说到。 “而我们在这些经验当中看到了两件事情:第一,疫苗在预防 COVID 方面仍然非常有效。 第二,它们还保留了非常强大的安全性。” AANHPI 社区在疫情期间面临着独特的挑战,包括由于语言障碍、对计算机技术的熟悉程度低、错误信息以及对疫苗或疫苗背后的科学的误解而难以获得有关 COVID-19 和疫苗的信息. “作为一名科学家,最让我担心的是缺乏关于 AANHPI 人群的分类数据,”美国卫生与公众服务部医务办公室中尉Adelaida M. Rosario博士说。“缺乏针对我们多元人种的特定数据掩盖了由社会经济、健康和可及性所造成的不平等现象。 这样会让我们的多族裔社区不被看见,让人觉得隐形。” 医学专家们一致同意以下的CDC指南尽快接受疫苗注射,来保护能到你的家人,亲人和社区。所有 12 岁及以上的人现在都有资格接种 COVID-19 疫苗。 “我们儿科医生建议家中有 12 …
