Vaccine effort continues to focus on healthcare workers

Dr. Nancy Nielsen is the Senior Associate Dean for Health Policy at UB's Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.

President-elect Joe Biden has set the ambitious goal of  distributing 100 million  COVID-19 vaccinations  in the first 100 days of his Presidency. While that seems unlikely based on the early pace of distribution, local health officials remain focused on the job at hand. "The distribution of vaccine, right now, is to try to take care of those frontline healthcare workers," Dr. Nancy Nielsen said during her weekly conversation with WBFO. " That's why hospitals are the distribution site."

Monday - Friday, 6 a.m. - 10 a.m.
