RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - The Virginia Department of Health and the Virginia Hospital & Healthcare Association have released a series of videos featuring Virginia’s frontline health care workers answering common questions about the COVID-19 vaccine.

The health care professionals answer questions about “the process of developing the vaccines now being administered, vaccine safety and effectiveness, common side effects, concerns and skepticism among communities of color regarding vaccine equity, vaccine prioritization among designated populations of vulnerable Virginians and essential workers, vaccine availability, the public and personal health importance of getting the vaccine, the importance of continuing to abide by safety precautions such as mask wearing even after being vaccinated, and more.”
