The trucks are rolling, bringing pallets of COVID-19 vaccine to distribution centers. If you are in the 1A allocation group, you’ll be among the first to get the vaccine. Should you take some precautions?

A nurse apparently fainted on live television while touting the vaccine she had just received. Fortunately, people close by eased her to the floor, so she did not fall and injure herself. People commonly faint after getting injections, so this may not be a cause for specific concern about the COVID-19 vaccine. Just be aware of the possibility and take precautions for at least 15 minutes.
