Promising news about two potential coronavirus vaccines have been catching headlines lately.
We heard more details about the candidates from Dr. William Chin, a professor of Medicine, Emeritus at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Chin also spoke about the importance of gaining widespread support for potential vaccines in order for a campaign to innoculate the country and the world to be truly successful.
Then, more locally, we caught up with Dr. Paul Biddinger, the chief of Emergency Preparedness at Mass General Hospital and the director of the MGH Center for Disaster Medicine. He’s also the chair of Gov. Charlie Baker’s COVID-19 Vaccine Advisory Group. Dr. Biddinger talked about the challenges facing local officials in both distributing a potential vaccine, but also getting buy in from residents to get vaccinated.
