VACCINE TEAM: Should you take Benadryl before your second shot?

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - What are the risks of getting vaccinated for those with underlying health conditions?

Douglas asked:

What are the risks of COVID-19 vaccine for people with cardiac conditions?

The CDC says the vaccines are not a risk for cardiac patients, instead the vaccines are essential.

People with heart conditions are at much higher risk of severe cases of COVID-19 with many more complications.

So, the CDC’s advice for heart patients is “do not delay.”
