Dr. Daniel Williams was a guest speaker at the Aug 19 Rotary luncheon at Shadowbrook Inn and Resort to educate Rotarians on the COVID-19 vaccine.
Dr. Williams described the different vaccines, how they were produced and how they work in the body. He considers them to be a modern miracle in terms of how fast they were able to get them to the public and how well they are working.
Of all people who have tested positive for COVID-19, 4 in 100 will end up in the hospital while 1.5 of 100 will die of it. This may seem like a small number, but it is 10 times as deadly as the flu. For many who get COVID-19, it may be the worst illness they’ve ever encountered.
For those that have been fully vaccinated but have a ‘breakthrough’ case of COVID-19, 4 in 10,000 will be hospitalized and 1 in 1,000,000 will perish. So, he stressed how worthwhile it is to be vaccinated.
Dr. Williams also described how the COVID-19 variants develop through “replication errors” and how the Delta variant is comparable to the high contagion level of chicken pox.
