It’s been a year since the pandemic uprooted our lives and changed many aspects of daily living.
Recent months have seen a ray of hope in the form of vaccines.
But even after the arrival of multiple vaccines, all with high levels of efficacy, the American and worldwide public continues to have serious questions about the vaccine.
Along those lines, we know many people in the Bay area also have questions about the COVID-19 Vaccine.
This week, our team at Bay News 9 will be providing extensive coverage of the latest information and answers on everything from the science behind the vaccine to the vaccination process in your community.
As part of this Vaccine Education Week, this special episode of To The Point Already will be examining where we are with the vaccine rollout, what’s being done right and what’s being done wrong and why some people, even health care workers, are hesitant about getting the vaccine.
On this episode, Bay News 9 reporter Cait McVey and long term care facility worker Nikki Guyton discuss the vaccine. And Dr. Hal Eskowitz, Physician and Chief of Lakeland Regional Health Care and Dr. Lindsay Peterson, USF Gerontologist, talk about vaccinating more people.
