Podcast: 12/21/2020
0.50 CME Credit Available

It is projected that by March of 2021, 1:700 Americans will have died of COVID-19. The historic pace of COVID-19 vaccine development was made possible by the countless sacrifices of many individuals across healthcare, research, health and human services, the Department of Defense, and other key sectors. This interprofessional collaboration required many to set life aside and work tirelessly to bring an effective vaccine to market, quickly. While mRNA vaccines have been in development since the 1990s, the COVID-19 vaccine efficacy rate of 95-100% across studied ages, race and ethnicities, and comorbidities is unprecedented.  Dr. Greg Poland breaks down everything you need to know about the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.
