The COVID-19 vaccines offer promise for a brighter future but “we’re not out of the woods yet,” says Dr. Wachter, Professor and Chair of the Department of Medicine at UCSF. In a race against emerging variants, efficient vaccine distribution is crucial…but can we get there? In this episode of the Business Group on Health Podcast, we speak with Dr. Wachter about the current state of the vaccines, with a deep dive on their roll-out. Dr. Wachter tells us why distribution has been a “hot mess”; why we should run - not walk - to get vaccinated once our name is called; and why March is a crucial month in the fight against the pandemic.
