Covid Vaccinations: Efficacy, Options, and Special Considerations for Chronic Illness

July 2 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm PDT

People with chronic illnesses often have compromised immune systems or ongoing health issues that can affect how they respond to vaccines. The effectiveness and potential side effects of vaccines may differ for these individuals compared to the general population. Individuals with chronic illnesses may be at a higher risk of experiencing adverse reactions to vaccines. This can make them hesitant to receive the vaccine and necessitates a careful evaluation of risks and benefits.

To help inform our community, Solve is hosting the free webinar, “Covid Vaccinations: Efficacy, Options, and Special Considerations for Chronic Illness.” Solve President & CEO Emily Taylor and Solve Chief Scientific Officer H. Tim Hsiao, PhD. will talk to infectious disease epidemiologist and science communicator Jessica Malaty Rivera, M.S. (Chair, Committee of Scientific and Medical Advisors, Vaccinate Your Family) and distinguished physician Melanie Hoppers, M.D. (Medical Provider, Bateman Horne Center) about the complex issues surrounding Covid vaccination for those with ME/CFS, Long Covid, and other infection-associated chronic conditions and illnesses.

This comprehensive session will delve into:

• The effectiveness of Covid vaccinations in preventing Long Covid and other long-term symptoms.
• An overview of the different types of Covid vaccines currently available.
• Insights into how vaccine manufacturers address the special needs of individuals with chronic illnesses during vaccine development.
• Expert advice on how people with ME/CFS, Long Covid, and other infection-associated chronic conditions can make informed decisions about Covid vaccination.

Our experts will provide valuable information, answer your questions, and offer practical guidance tailored to those with chronic health conditions. Don’t miss this opportunity to gain clarity and confidence in your vaccination choices.

This event is funded in part by an educational grant from Novavax.
