Novavax is almost 90% effective except fro So African variant.
Velisa Robertson
39:29
How will we be able to get the recording and power point?
Dawn
40:32
I’m in the Novavax trial
Martha Goff
42:42
I hope to get one of the first two
Michael Taroli
43:01
Why would you want a less than 70% effective vaccine versus a 90+% effective vaccine?
Martha Goff
43:27
Michael T ... exactly ‼️
Sayed Edres Sadiqi
44:04
Do we get choice to select what vaccine they do for us?
Mark Havener
44:16
There aren't enough supplies of the more effective vaccines, and some people are skeptical of mRNA vaccines.
Nicole Sivell (she/her)
44:36
Michael T, my understanding is that the less effective vaccine is MUCH easier to transport and store
Dawn
44:36
Sayed, probably not soon because vaccines are hard to come by so far.
Mark Havener
45:16
Yeah, that is another reason. Don't need the extreme cold. Good point Nicole.
Dawn
45:26
Michael, chances are that if you get the 70% effective vaccine, you may have the more effective one available to you later and you can do that as well.
Mary Hansen
46:19
When you consider efficacy - was efficacy for the 1st 2 vaccines calculated before the variances, and the other 3 calculated after the variances? Could this account for the efficacy differences?
Mary Hansen
46:22
yes
Mark Havener
47:01
Good info from Dr. Iser. Hadn't considered that.
Julie C
47:06
Can you remind us which vax are the MRNA vax?
Dawn
47:28
Pfizer and Moderna
Vicki Alonso
47:36
Can you demystify the information about side effects such as harming infertility/sterility.
Julie C
47:41
Thanks, Dawn.
Mary Hansen
48:23
Safeway = Moderna
Kirk
50:00
How well are variants being tracked in the US?..i.e., how likely that there is community transmission of variants not yet identified?
Michelle Barkley
50:22
Velisa-we will be share this recording. Contact any of the College Nurses if you don't see it in a few days.
Martha Goff
50:49
Michelle B ... thanks
Tyler Rollins
52:08
do we know yet if the vaccine just prevents symptoms or does it also prevent infection and subsequent shedding of the virus...in other words do these vaccines prevent infection or does it only limit symptoms?
Keyonna Price
52:21
Velisa - also you can contact Pam Whipple for a copy of the power point
michele arnott ARC RN
52:25
I’ve received Moderna
Pietra
52:34
Is it best to wait for your medical provider to admin the vaccine or should we be trying to get on a wait list for wherever we can get it? I'm under 65 and fear I can't get a vaccine until late Spring or after.
Dr. Dee Dee Gilliam
52:41
I've had both doses of Moderna.
Michelle Barkley
53:24
I received both doses of Pfizer
Dawn
53:49
I have received either both doses of Novavax, or placebo. :D
Kirk
54:38
I'm feeling vaccine envy. ;-)
Julian torres
54:55
Will both vaccines have different side effects?
Martha Goff
54:55
Kirk ... me too
Dr. Dee Dee Gilliam
56:04
LOL! We got them because we're healthcare providers. Some of our awesome nurses volunteer in testing and vaccine clinics!
Don Reid

Shelly Charron

It sounds like only the health care and those over 65-75 years of age
Dawn
57:00
Yolo County just added education workers to the vaccine rollout (Phase 1b), but I don’t know about Sac County.
Martha Goff
57:41
Sac County, Ed workers, but only K12 now. higher Ed later
Dawn
57:42
https://www.yolocounty.org/Home/Components/News/News/12478/3404
Dr. Dee Dee Gilliam
57:49
There will be communication coming soon. We just need to make sure all the links Sac County provided are working, which they weren't. They're working on that fix.
Oscar Galvin
57:59
Starting with k-12 teachers as of yesterday, but no supply available
Don Reid
58:00
Here here.
Dr. Dee Dee Gilliam
58:28
Higher Ed has been authorized in Sac County as of yesterday.
Nicole Sivell (she/her)
58:35
The wording on the Sac county vaccination website is"Update - Sacramento County has opened COVID-19 vaccination appointments for childcare providers and educators beginning February 16, 2021. Registration instructions have been shared with school leaders so they can share with their employees in accordance with a specified rollout."
Dawn
58:54
Thanks!
Sayed Edres Sadiqi
59:01
Thank you very much Dr. Joseph for the great info
Martha Goff
59:21
Dr Gilliam will we need to hear from Los Rios before we can register as employees?
Naomi Bahm
59:40
Missed from earlier in the chat:
Julie C
59:42
If I live in El Dorado County will I be prevented from getting a vaccine in Sacramento?
Naomi Bahm
59:44
Can you demystify the information about side effects such as harming infertility/sterility.
Dr. Dee Dee Gilliam
59:59
No. Once we get the correct information, you can go in and sign up at your convenience.
Naomi Bahm
01:00:20
Also missed: do we know yet if the vaccine just prevents symptoms or does it also prevent infection and subsequent shedding of the virus...in other words do these vaccines prevent infection or does it only limit symptoms?
Dr. Dee Dee Gilliam
01:00:22
Sacramento County will vaccinate all educators who WORK in the county, regardless of where they live.
Dawn
01:00:51
Same with Yolo County
Michael Taroli
01:00:54
Thank you Dr. Gilliam - that's what I was wondering
Dr. Dee Dee Gilliam
01:01:05
No problem!
Shirley Murillo
01:01:14
Do you need to have both vaccines from the same manufacture?
Tracy
01:01:43
Anyone else having sound issue
Michael Taroli
01:01:59
@Tracy - no
Julie C
01:02:32
Thanks, Dr. Gillam
iPhone
01:04:00
Is the Covid-19 vaccine voluntary or mandatory for a student to attend college?
Mark Havener
01:06:47
https://www.facebook.com/drjosephiser is the page I found for Dr. Iser, if anyone wants it.
Dawn
01:07:33
This is a big difference from the original SARS, which typically did not begin infecting others until the patient was clearly sick.
Dawn
01:07:47
Thanks, Mark!
Dr. Dee Dee Gilliam
01:08:03
When you get your vaccines, please sign up for V-safe, which is how the CDC is tracking all the side effects.
Dr. Dee Dee Gilliam
01:08:26
It's an app. They track your symptoms daily, then weekly.
Minh La
01:08:26
Thanks
Mark Havener
01:08:30
You're welcome. Looks like there is a lot of good information provided there by Dr. Iser.
Nicole Sivell (she/her)
01:08:50
Thank you! Never heard of V-safe, it's not getting any press that I've seen

Diana D
01:10:33
which vaccine was that for folks with severe allergies?
michele arnott ARC RN
01:10:42
I was in the modern study. Received 2 injections in August. Was convicted I received placebos due to no side effects. Turns out I received the actual Moderna vaccines. Everyone is different, that is just what happened to me.
Pietra
01:10:50
My siblings received the first dose of Pz and said they had stomach issues about 1.5 hours after. I hear from others that the second dose is worse - chills, fever and tired for about a day. But that shows it's working. Everyone is different.
Dawn
01:12:08
Michele, I thought I got the placebo after my first Novavax shot. But the second shot hurt for a day so now I suspect I got the actual thing.
Julian torres
01:13:22
yes
Julie C
01:14:50
That is very interesting Michele
JOSEPH ISER
01:15:36
If you get a Pfizer vaccine, the second dose must also be Pfizer--same with Moderna.
Shirley Murillo
01:16:00
thank you!

Will there be volunteer opportunities at the vaccination clinics upcoming on our campuses?
Martha Goff

myturn.ca.gov
kimberly Johnson
01:18:01
My neighbor is in her 80s and asked me to help her get the vaccine and her English is not well, how can I help her?
David Chinte
01:18:11
I'd been hearing that "education" under Tier 1B was focused on K-12 and may not necessarily apply to us in Los Rios...?
Dr. Dee Dee Gilliam
01:18:22
Right now those clinics are being run by Dignity and Kaiser. If you would like to volunteer, signing up for the Sacramento Medical Reserve Corps would be helpful. They need support folks as well as vaccinators.
Martha Goff
01:18:44
“probably” need proof? yes or no please. And how to prove you work for Los Rios?
Nicole Sivell (she/her)
01:18:47
@Dr. Dee Dee Gilliam, thank you!
Tracy
01:19:41
LOL
Kirk
01:23:50
Kaiser has said it will "reach out" when it's your turn...do member of Kaiser need to go through "my turn"?
Dr. Dee Dee Gilliam
01:24:08
https://vsafe.cdc.gov/
Shelly Charron
01:24:10
What if you miss your 2nd vaccine date?
Martha Goff
01:24:49
Kaiser, ha! they’re still on 75+ with no end in sight
Veronica Wheaton
01:24:58
Thank you so much for this session it was very informative. Stay Well.
Dr. Dee Dee Gilliam
01:25:08
I'm a Kaiser member. MyTurn gave me additional opportunities to get the vaccine. I actually got it at Safeway.
Martha Goff
01:25:25
Dr Gil
Shirley Murillo
01:25:29
thank you so much for this great information! Stay Safe.
JOSEPH ISER
01:25:31
You do have some time after missing a second dose where the vaccine will still be effective. Likely at least four weeks. However, please try to get it as soon as you can. The vaccines were tested with the time frames authorized so it's a bit difficult to know how long you can wait to get the second dose.
Martha Goff
01:25:33
Dr Gilliam thanks
Dawn
01:25:34
Definitely sign up for MyTurn no matter who your provider is.
Veronica Serratos
01:25:54
Thank you for all the great information
Dawn
01:27:02
I’ve had the flu vaccine and a shingles vaccines in the past year. Same arm soreness.
Julie C
01:27:23
I heard you are not supposed to take Ibuprofin for the side effects. Is that true?
Wendy Gomez RN
01:27:35
It is important to know that you cannot get COVID from the vaccine just like you cannot get the flu from the flu vaccine
JOSEPH ISER
01:28:02
I believe you can take any anti pain or fever medication without worry.
Hana Ruiz
01:28:46
Thank you for this informative COVID-19 vaccine session. I am a full-time student. Once it is my turn, I will definitely sign up to get vaccinated.
Julie C
01:28:46
Thank you Dr. Iser!
JOSEPH ISER
01:29:01
You are very welcome!
Mark Havener
01:29:04
Thank you all for providing this webinar.
Naomi Bahm
01:29:08
When will we know how long the vaccines protect us and whether or not boosters are required?
Minh La
01:29:08
Can you go over the 2nd shot side effect?
Dr. Dee Dee Gilliam
01:29:23
I need to jump off. Thank you all for attending! Have a great day! Please don't hesitate to reach out to any of us with your questions and concerns.
Martha Goff
01:29:45
yes! I’ll take the vaccine over the virus any day
Alex Casareno
01:30:09
When will this zoom meeting be made available to everyone?
Martha Goff
01:30:34
I had measles as an adult! in the 1980s
Mark Havener
01:30:52
Measles party/chicken pox party!
Pietra
01:31:42
So then will we need vaccinations for COVID every year? like the flu shot?
Mark Havener
01:31:52
So we will continue to get regular vaccines for COVID-19, just like the flu, right?
kimberly Johnson
01:31:52
My neighbor is in her 80s and asked me to help her get the vaccine and her English is not well, how can I help her?
JOSEPH ISER
01:32:15
Exactly, Mark. The only vaccines available when I was a kid are polio and smallpox.
Vicki Alonso
01:34:38
Thank you for your time and this opportunity to get information. Have a great day!
JOSEPH ISER
01:34:55
It's very nice you are willing to help your neighbor. Go to the websites we have been mentioning and sign her up--especially in the county where you live.
me007
01:36:22
Thanks to ALL in the medical community I've learned a lot as a Paralegal student. Have a great day. Thanks again Shannon Hendricks
Jess Shults
01:36:33
I came in a bit late and missed how you know when you can get your vaccine. I've signed up for My Turn, but I'm unsure of the whole process as when I'm going to be able to get mine?
Jess Shults
01:37:16
or do we just wait for someone to contact us, telling us we can get our vaccine after signing up?
Don Reid
01:39:27
Kaiser has been very good, actually. Their website is full of information
Don Reid
01:39:36
With information that is
Kirk
01:39:42
What about "household units" where some are vaccinated and some not? Doesn't that create unique risks (e.g., risk of asymptomatic transmission) within a household?
Minh La
01:40:05
Try this for 65+
Minh La
01:40:06

Minh La
01:40:28
They are pretty good and organized
Velisa Robertson
01:41:16
how can we get the recording for this?
Nasir Rashha
01:41:25
Thank you for your information.
Michael Carney
01:41:27
This was very informative. Thank you very much!Stay safe, everyone!
Kirk
01:41:28
Thank you all of you that presented!
