Overview

In memorable history, the 1918 influenza pandemic was noted to one of the most severe pandemics until now. It spread worldwide with a pace similar to that of COVID-19, and was caused by an H1N1 virus with genes of avian origin.

Today its remnants are now known as "the common flu." Annually, people worldwide are vaccinated but few realize that it took nearly 30 years to create at that time.  

Now, with speed and efficiency, two highly effective vaccines have been approved in the United States against the virus that causes COVID-19. Most notably, this was all done without sacrificing scientific standards or rigor. Given it took only 9 months to create and complete phase III trials, there has been a wealth of information circulating the Internet regarding the safety of the vaccine.

The COVID-19 vaccine will help protect people from getting COVID-19 and also prevent hospitalizations. Though patients and providers continue to have several questions regarding the vaccine, this lecture will add to that knowledge base and address the most likely common questions people are going to get.
