We're going to turn now to Dr. Jen Ashton who has been looking at the questions you're asking online. So first question, Dr. Jen, is it true that if I have already had covid-19 my reaction to the first vaccine shot could be worse? It is possible in terms of the premise of immunology. But remember, the opposite is also possible. It's possible that your body has already seen this pathogen and primed so the next time it sees it, you won't get the overwhelming physical signs and symptoms that made so you sick the first time. This is something that is being tracked. There are, of course, outliars all the time. And people, you know, anecdotally might say you to or to me this is what happens. But again, big data sets.

Now school districts cannot mandate this vaccine at this time yet. States can, however, then when you get to the college or university level, we're already seeing that start to happen. My daughter's university requiring every single student who comes back to campus show proof of vacation or get vaccinated soon there after.
