Ep.72 | COV1D-19...One Year Later with Dr. Galiatsatos

The Conversation: COV1D-19….One Year Later


In this follow-up episode, Dr. Panagis Galiatsatos (“Dr. G”) is back to talk about COVID-19.


This time around, he is sharing what the medical community has learned about the disease that completely changed the world.


Dr. G will be sharing how to handle the huge amount of information (and misinformation) that comes from the media, vaccinations, and how we can stay healthy going forward.


If you’re someone who has vaccination concerns or are confused about news about the virus, this quick episode will help give you the facts to make clear and informed decisions about your health.


Questions We Explore

  • What have we learned about COVID-19 a year later?
  • Why do viruses always come from animals?
  • Should I trust some of the “horror stories” I read?
  • Does the vaccine have side effects?
  • Is a vaccinated person contagious?
  • How should the medical community communicate to people who are hesitant to take the vaccine?
  • Why do COVID-19 use mRNA?
  • Will we need vaccine boosters?
  • What should you do  if you don’t get vaccinated?


3 Important Things to Remember

Skip the fear, follow the science  Look for information that gives facts, not opinion


The best weapon against a virus is information  Having science-based information that can help the world make the best decision is key to stopping the spread


Make the best decision for you Decide base on YOUR circumstances, not someone else


The Homework

As the coronavirus pandemic continued, there was another thing that spread: information. In some cases, this information was helpful. In other cases, it was less than helpful. In extreme cases, it was harmful.


As Dr. G shared, one of the best tools we have to fight against a virus is information. Information helps us make decisions, for our own families and as a society.


Yet, we often don’t question where we get our information.


For this “homework”, let’s focus on the “information” piece of the conversation. 


Take a minute to ask yourself the following:


1, Where do I get my information about the COVID-19 virus?

2. Did I trust the information? Why?

3, Did I verify the information? Why or why not?


Think through your answers and ask what those answers mean for your health.
