Coronavirus Vaccination, Availability, and Access
One year into the pandemic, the development of coronavirus vaccines has been the bright light. Not only were the vaccines developed far faster than first anticipated, but they are also safe and highly effective. The challenge now? Getting those vaccines into the arms of as many people as quickly as possible.
We talk with Cape and Islands State Senator Julian Cyr; Dr. David Tager, Chief Medical Officer at the Community Health Center of Cape Cod; and Sean O’Brien, Chief Health Officer and Emergency Preparedness Coordinator for Barnstable County about all things vaccine. Who is eligible, how to sign up to get the shot, and if you’ve had the vaccine, is it safe to visit with those who haven’t been vaccinated? Should you still wear a mask? We’ll cover it all and take your questions and comments about the vaccine.
