At WSHU, we got an email from a listener from Riverhead on Long Island who was concerned about her elderly parents getting the COVID-19 vaccine. She wanted to know when it was safe for them to get the shot since they were treated for COVID-19 with antibodies earlier this year. So, we asked Dr. Roderick Go, an associate professor of clinical medicine at Stony Brook Medicine.

The listener said her parents feel healthy after having COVID-19 in March. She said they were to wait at least 90 days till their first shot. But now they are worried how protected they will be.
