Health officials with Mayo Clinic Health System took questions about the COVID-19 vaccine.

The virtual Q&A was set up to discuss various myths and facts regarding the vaccine.

Many people have similar worries and concerns like – how long the vaccine lasts and who can safely get it.

We know healthcare workers and high-risk people are first in line for the vaccine, but there is still uncertainty about everyone else.

“When will it be available to the general public? It’s hard to assess but I think late spring, potentially early summer. It’s just so hard to predict at this point in time,” said Dr. James Hebl, the Regional Vice President of Mayo Clinic Health System.
