Vaccines Are the Way to End This Pandemic

It has been a long year of devastation, and even though sadness and fear remain, there is hope. Safe and effective vaccines are here. And the vaccine supplies and availability will only increase.

CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield’s Vice President and Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Daniel Winn, recently shared information on vaccines in a Baltimore Sun article. The most important statement shared: “vaccines are the way to end this pandemic.”

In the article, Dr. Winn shares four topics that we must continue to discuss:

  • Education about the COVID-19 vaccine
  • Myths tied to vaccines in general
  • Access to appointments and the vaccine itself
  • Best practices after receiving your shot(s)

To get 75-85% of the population vaccinated is a massive undertaking. Frustrations felt this last year will not disappear right away. But the sooner we get vaccinated when we are eligible and able, the sooner we can all get better together.
