COVID-19 Vaccine: Is It Safe?

Latest reports indicate that COVID-19 cases are on the rise throughout the U.S., and many warn of more difficult days to come with the onset of winter. Throughout the pandemic, leaders have indicated that getting the pandemic under control hinges on creating and distributing a vaccine.

But now that the first of the vaccines are rolling out to the public, consumers want answers to several pressing questions: how were these vaccines developed so fast? Will they be available for everybody? How will they distribute them? Most importantly, are they safe?

In this Fight Back! episode, we talk with vaccine expert Dr. Mike Ybarra, an Emergency Room Physician, and Vice President of Medical Affairs and Strategic Alliances at the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers Association. Dr. Ybarra has over ten years of advocacy, health policy, and direct patient care experience. His background and knowledge will help us take a deep dive into the development of the COVID vaccine, its technology, and its implications for the public.
