David Wohl, MD, professor of medicine in the division of infectious diseases, talked with ABC-11 News about a CDC study that reveals women are more likely to experience serious side effects from COVID-19 vaccines.

The CDC study looked at data from the first 13.7 million COVID-19 vaccine doses given to Americans. Among the side effects reported to federal officials, more than 79% came from women.

“Nine times out of ten if there is somebody feeling flush or their heart is racing, it will be a woman,” said Wohl. But he added that most women do not experience anything at all because these are really well-tolerated shots.”
