  • Overview

    Adherence to CDC vaccination recommendations is a public health issue and a topic of great concern for clinicians. According to the World Health Organization, vaccines ultimately reduce the burden of infectious disease and have the potential to save 2 to 3 million lives a year worldwide independent of their impact on morbidity. Join us as Drs. E.J. Mayeaux and Paul Doghramji discuss the challenges we’re all facing to overcome vaccine hesitancy and improve vaccine uptake, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
