Abstract: The COVID-19 Pandemic has brought enormous challenge, heightened uncertainties, loss of health and/or life, and strong emotions across the globe. In the midst of this, everyone is faced with questions and choices of SARS-CoV-2 vaccines. As clinicians, we must grapple with these same things, as we help our patients and clients with their questions. In the text below, helpful and essential information from the CDC and NIH on the Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are presented. Viewpoints and vital information from researchers who have raised questions on the vaccines with their own clinical thinking and expertise are also included. Lastly, a discussion about inflammaging and patient total body burden in regards to illness and vaccination tolerance is presented. No matter what your personal decision is on whether to take the vaccine(s) or not, this is an opportunity to encourage critical thinking and empower one towards healthy choices as we face uncertain times.
