UCI doctor dispels COVID-19 vaccine rumors, encourages people to get vaccination

Dr. Jose Mayorga, the executive director of the UCI Family Health Center in Santa Ana, said Thursday that he would get an immunization as soon as possible. “Absolutely, I will be ready to get the vaccine once I’m notified that I’m available to get it and I’m going to encourage my family members to do the same,” Mayorga said. … Mayorga hoped to help put some of the rumors surrounding the vaccine to rest. He said those who get the Pfizer vaccine will not have the virus injected into their bodies.
