Building Confidence In A COVID-19 Vaccine
There’s been a lot of positive news about the release of a COVID-19 vaccine lately. Major pharmaceutical companies like Pfizer and Moderna are touting better than expected outcomes from the research trials of their vaccines.
But some reported results are raising eyebrows. AstraZeneca’s vaccine was the subject of recent skepticism after members of the scientific community raised concerns about the transparency of the trials of its vaccine.
That being said, an effective vaccine or COVID-19 doesn’t seem too far off, but confidence in one is low. Nearly half of U.S. adults said they would not get a COVID-19 vaccine if it came out today.
