Get vaccinated is doctor's advice

A local doctor has given a presentation to Woy Woy aged care staff about the benefits and risks of vaccination.

Dr Jeevaka Samarasinghe of BlueSky Medical in Vidler Ave, Woy Woy, gave a presentation to staff at Blue Wave Living on July 15.

BlueSky Medical is asking local residents to get vaccinated against Covid-19.

"Covid-19 vaccination slows both infectivity, by the Covid virus being killed quicker in the vaccinated, and morbidity - the effect of significant illness - including severe respiratory distress and post-infection problems such as 'long Covid syndrome'," according to a social media post by the clinic.

Vaccination also slows clotting disorders, which "are many more times likely with covid infection than with vaccination".

"Ultimately mass vaccination makes the environment for the infection to thrive less favourable and its population effects become less of a problem.

"This gives us the time as populations to allow natural viral mutation towards a more benign state to eventually make the virus less of a problem.

"Vaccine hesitancy is entirely understandable. There are some risks.

"What is important is to weigh up the risks and benefits from information given by your qualified health practitioners tailored to you and come to an informed decision.

"These choices are made so much more difficult however by anti-vaccination misinformation.

"It is hard to sift through this and the trolling associated with it, but for those of us who want to get back to a more normal world listen to the mainstream health advice."
