I’m getting LOTS and LOTS of great patient questions about the COVID-19 vaccines by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna. Many of the questions are about the safety, efficacy and potential side-effects of these new COVID vaccines for patients who previously had a heart valve replacement implanted, a heart valve repair operation and/or an aortic root reconstruction for an aneurysm.
To help educate the patients in our community, I contacted several heart valve experts to better understand the safety of the COVID-19 vaccines for patients who already had some type of heart surgery.
The important information is in the new post: “COVID-19 Vaccines & Heart Valve Surgery: 10 Important Facts“.
In less than 36 hours, this post has 2,700+ social media shares. It’s great to see this new article helping patients all over the world who are considering immunization for the novel coronavirus.
