COVID Vaccine Facts For Nervous Parents 09/13/2021

Dr. Peter Hotez, a dean at the National School of Tropical Medicine, and professor of pediatrics and molecular virology and microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine has been working on coronavirus vaccines for the last 10 years. He explained that when he began, there wasn't a big interest or need to pursue the coronavirus vaccine. Research and development happened but it wasn't anything being actively developed. Dr. Hoetz talks of the MERS outbreak in the Middle East in 2012 giving scientists an opportunity to really examine the virus.

“We learned that the spike protein is the soft underbelly of the virus. And we showed that if you deliver the spike protein as a vaccine, it's highly effective—induces what are called virus-neutralizing antibodies.”

COVID Vaccine Facts For Nervous Parents The COVID-19 vaccine has been clouded by misinformation. Here are some fast facts for parents ahead of a child's vaccine.
