Northeastern News interviews Dr. Sehyo Yune, leader of the school's Covid-19 effort.
There are definitely people who are fully vaccinated and are pretty ill. But mostly the symptoms last for a shorter amount of time and it’s more like a cold or mild flu than, like, you can’t breathe, you have to go to the E.R. If you’re vaccinated, it is much less likely that you’re going to be hospitalized or die from COVID-19 than you would have been if you were not vaccinated.
Q. If I get the sniffles or a scratchy throat, I should get tested, right?
Yes. And wear a mask.
Yune also explains why the school is both requiring students to show proof of vaccination and continuing regular Covid-19 testing this fall - along with contact tracing for anybody who tests positive.
