What can Orange County residents expect after getting coronavirus vaccines?

During a Voice of OC COVID panel discussion earlier this week, UC Irvine [Associate Professor], epidemiologist and public health expert, Andrew Noymer, said fully vaccinated people can start getting out more, as long as they wait the two weeks after the final shot for the immunity to kick in. … Dr. Shruti Gohil, an infectious disease doctor who treats virus patients at UCI Medical Center, said officials should take advantage of the relatively calm situation right now and vaccinate as many people as possible in order to help prevent or curb another wave and to curb mutations. … UCI [Assistant Professor], epidemiologist and public health expert, Daniel Parker, said life may never get back to pre-pandemic operations.
