Vacunas contra el COVID-19: mitos y realidades

Event Details

Date: Jul 01, 2021 Location: Online


Recent polls indicate that vaccine confidence is increasing among Latinos and Hispanics. But some still have questions.

Hear about how safety always guides the scientific pathway toward vaccines and treatments. Safety steers scientific leaders who review and fund research, informs recruitment of volunteers who partner with researchers and participate in clinical trials, frames the rigorous and continuous oversight of studies, determines regulatory approval, guides engagement efforts in communities, and directs doctors and nurses who bring discoveries to patients. At each step, we can find people like our panelists.
