Description

WHOOP is researching how COVID-19 vaccines could affect your body. VP of Data Science and Research Emily Capodilupo breaks down our latest study, which found that the majority of 1,200 vaccinated WHOOP members did not show a significant difference in recovery, resting heart rate, and heart rate variability after getting the first shot. This study also found that those who did see a change in physiological metrics did not experience a diminished recovery for more than a day or two. Emily and Will Ahmed discuss how this research began (2:39 ), how vaccines work (4:18 ), why two shots are needed (7:07 ), WHOOP data post-vaccine (9:43 ), the quick data rebound for those who do feel the effects of the shot (11:06 ), why feeling sick after being vaccinated isn't a bad sign (11:56 ), studying the differences between the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines (13:26 ), how sleep can help your body build antibodies (14:41 ), our next research steps (16:34 ), and how WHOOP protects your privacy (18:00 ).
