When can grandparents safely visit their grandkids after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine? | myfox8.com
Once vaccinated, senior citizens will be eager to spend time with their grandkids. But as Dr. Henry Anyimadu, an infectious disease specialist with Hartford HealthCare says, it’s a “very complicated decision to make.”
He says older folks should wait until they’ve received both doses of the vaccine. Then, allow two to three additional weeks to pass.
“You will be about 95% protected, but there’s still the risk you could get the virus,” said Anyimadu. “There are still asymptomatic transmissions that can happen.”
It’s not known if people who are vaccinated could still be carriers of coronavirus.
