S1, Ep 1- Trusting The Vaccine Healthcare Matters

    • Medicine

In this episode, we explore the history of vaccines, how the COVID-19 vaccines work, and what other vaccines are being developed. 

“We're developing vaccines not only for infectious diseases, but we're developing vaccines for oncology cancer, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease, HIV, AIDS. So if we are going to be so hesitant about vaccines, we're not going to be able to defeat some of these long term chronic illnesses that affect people," says Dr. Robert Popovian, Chief Science Policy Officer at the Global Healthy Living Foundation.

Among the highlights in this episode: 

2:09 - Why the COVID-19 vaccines are critical vaccines 

3:30 - The mNRA technology behind the COVID-19 vaccines 

5:30 - How do we reach vaccine hesitant communities? 

8:11 - How does that reaction to the COVID-19 vaccine compared to other vaccines in history? 

9:50 - What are the long term consequences of misinformation of the COVID-19 vaccine? 

11:24 - What can we do to curb COVID-19 and prevent it from coming back? 

14:00 - What are the takeaways from this episode?
