Should I or shouldn't I take the Covid-19 vaccine?

Although a number of Covid-19 vaccines have been approved for use in the general public, they typically come with certain restrictions as to who can receive them.

This video, presented by Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) medical graduate Dr Ilia Jauharis, takes a look at who should or shouldn't take the vaccine, and why.

It is part of the campaign against Covid-19 vaccine misinformation organised by Docere, a group of young doctors and professionals who aim to empower the public with health information.

StarHealth is partnering with Docere to show some of the videos they have produced for this campaign.

A new video will be uploaded every day at our webpage from March 8 to 14 (2021).
