The Pharmacy Benefit Podcast: Vaccine Education and Equity
On a recent episode of the Pharmacy Benefit Podcast, guest host Claire Wulf Winiarek is joined by Janet McUlsky, convener of the COVID-19 Vaccine Education and Equity Project, and Susan Winckler, former Chief of Staff to the FDA Commissioner and current CEO of the Reagan-Udall Foundation for the FDA. Together, they discuss COVID-19 vaccines, how to quickly and equitably distribute them, and why educating the public on their safety and efficacy is so important.
Their conversation comes at a critical time, particularly as the medical and health care supply chain work together to address the pandemic. As a result, the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines is ramping up across the country. Moreover, the vaccine is safe, effective, and will save lives—but some Americans have concerns about receiving it. How can we help educate the public and assure patients that the vaccine is the best tool we have to end the pandemic?
Claire, Susan, and Janet discuss this and more on the newest episode. Listen to this conversation and other episodes here!
