Untangling concerns about viral shedding

Recent concerns about the safety of COVID-19 vaccines have involved confusion and misinformation about viral shedding. If you are on the frontlines and find yourself explaining what viral shedding is and how it relates to either the use of masks or concerns about COVID-19 vaccine safety, you might want to share the recent Parents PACK article, “Viral shedding and COVID-19: What can and can’t happen.” The article is also available as a two-sided, printable PDF.
