    906 - The Vaccine

    906 - The Vaccine

    As of November 20th 2020, Pfizer has officially applied for EUA (Emergency Use Authorization) from the FDA, with Moderna most likely not far behind, meaning vaccine distribution is (hopefully) right around the corner. To help combat misinformation, as well as provide a handy resource for your own discussions, we have created a brand new website dedicated to better understanding what the Covid-19 vaccines are, how they work, and their efficacy (https://covidvaxinfo.com). Ryan also details his experience after going through the Pfizer vaccine trial! So sit back, relax, and come get vaccinated with Rumor Flies!

😍

One of my favorite podcasts! These guys are both informative and funny. Don’t mind the anti-vaxxers comments and reviews. They just don’t like that the podcast episode about the COVID vaccine was one of their most important (and best) podcasts to date.

A much needed break!

You guys are my new favorite podcast when I need to pull my head out of news and politics. Love to get the laughs while learning.
