Tips for Hosting Unvaccinated Thanksgiving Guests from the San Diego Doctor

SAN DIEGO – While San Diegans are getting ready for Thanksgiving, doctors say it’s a good idea to take stock of your health, whether you’ve been vaccinated or not.

When it comes to potential symptoms of coronavirus, it is better safe than sorry.

“The four patients I’ve had literally said to me, ‘Doc, I think it’s just allergies.’ And I say, ‘Well, let’s just go ahead and get a COVID test because you have sniffles’ and they came back positive, Dr. Jyotu Sandhu told FOX 5 on Wednesday.

His patients, the doctor said, were all vaccinated so they had mild symptoms for about a week. But that was not why the cases worried him that the holiday was coming.

“Those people can pass it on to the unvaccinated without them knowing they have it,” Sandhu said. “I say to my patients, ‘I’m not worried about you, but I’m worried about the people you might inadvertently pass on to those who are unvaccinated because they are the ones who are going to get the more serious disease. “

The doctor warned that if you are unvaccinated and plan to get together with others, you put yourself at risk – even if everyone else has been vaccinated. He advises wearing a mask indoors and either making sure there is plenty of ventilation inside or just moving the celebration outdoors.
