Hello everyone and welcome! Please use the chat for your comments and use the Q&A for your questions.
Hi Alison, apologies that I'm so tough to reach on email. I'm on service without a fellow so I'll try to stay on as long I can. Thanks for helping to put this together - such a needed topic.
Hi, Sam-no worries! Appreciate you attending today!
Dr. Traci Johnson
Hey Toni! Its Traci!!
We encourage you to please post your questions for the panel in the Q&A section.
Can you put the MOD resources link here in the chat please?
I didn't speak to my provider, but made the decision to receive the vaccine on my own.
I didn’t speak to my PCP because I don’t know her that well and don’t have the full trust but I do have certain physicians that I have stayed in contact with and trust completely and I based my decision to get it off the trust I have in Dr. Ebony Carter!
@Judy - same, I received the vaccine without talking to my provider
The political involvement has been a huge barrier. How do you address the people who don't want to get it simply because they don't want to do something they are being told they "have to do"? Those that don't want "government" interfering...
Dr. Traci Johnson
HEY!!! I just saw your message! Thanks for the kind words!! Muah!
Is there any information out there about how long that passive immunity lasts on babies?
Are you guys encouraging elective induction of labor for those pregnant people who had mild covid in early pregnancy that have since recovered? Or are you still comfortable with expectant management/IOL at 40?
We are not recommending any early intervention unless something else devevlops
Philip - can you post the link for some literature for that? Very interesting
I have had several patients experience amenorrhea following their vaccine. This has caused them many concerns regarding thier fertility. I have also had patients that have an IUD with very light or no periods at all, start to bleed very heavy following their vaccine. Have you heard of this and how do you reassure women who are concerned?
Jennifer - yes, there are current ongoing studies on menstrual changes for women who received the vaccine. This is now a known side effect and you are right, it is disturbing for women
I have friends who experienced this. I believe the Yale REI department wrote a compelling New York Times piece that prompted the NIH to reevaluate how little we know about menstruation in general.

So sorry I'm in and out with patient care. Saw this in the chat - Some data shows neonatal passive immunity to COVID lasting 6 months - unclear if this is a protective level or just a detectable level.
Dr. Ebony Carter has been amazing at putting things on social media for people to engage in. She’s done Podcasts as well
thank you for the great discussion! Will the recording be shared?
Excellent discussion and excellent panel, thank you all so much for your incredibly valuable insight
Laura, fellow literature fan, —all these -Mabs remind me of Mercutio’s soliloquy of Queen Mab in Romeo and Juliet!
Great point Karen! This will likely hit home for many women who are on the fence about vaccination.
Thank you very much for this presentation and insightful discussion!
Great to know Philip! Thanks so much for the update
Also can you post the article - I woudl love to read that
On behalf of MHA, MC LAN, and the March of Dimes, I want to thank you for participating today and we hope this was of great value to you!
